Breaking News: uBid Acquires Bidville

Breaking news: uBid has acquired the assets of online auction site Bidville: Link to story on AuctionBytes Newsflash.

The timing is certainly interesting. The question I have is, how can uBid leverage Bidville to its benefit? Certainly uBid could help grow Bidville, but what's in it for the uBid auction site? Is advertising uBid on Bidville enough? 

uBid certifieds its merchants and handles all payment processing for its merchants. How will it deal with a more free-wheeling eBay-style site?

I think it can be a big deal, I would like to see what she thinks.  Should be very interesting to see how this develops.
