Yahoo and Skype-alike
By: Ina Steiner
eBay spent a fortune on Skype this year, and the field is getting very crowded. The Associated Press reports today that Yahoo is coming out with a Skype-like service. "Launch is imminent" according to the report. (It also talks about video phone calls. Not sure I'm ready for that on a daily basis!)
SGCowen came out with a report, "E-Commerce - PowerSeller Survey: eBay's Franchise Is Rock Solid, But Growth Is Slowing." I'll be taking a look to see if I can find anything interesting to report on in Newsflash.
Speaking of Newsflash, there are always interesting story in the "AuctionBytes Newsflash: Other Online Auction News" column where I link to eBay-related articles from other publications. Here's a preview of tomorrow's (Thursday's) column.
