Blimey, old news then. But it was officially announced yesterday ;)

Can't see why they would mess with the winning formula, and would probably let it stand on its own two feet, like Paypal.

Shrewd move by ebay if you ask me, assuming they didn't pay over the odds...

"but eBay is paying a hefty sum—$2.6 billion in cash and shares and perhaps more if certain criteria are met—nonetheless"

Sounds like a lot to me...

I agree it depends what they do with it - if they connect it too much with eBay I think they may have a problem.

Suggestion that they may allow buyers and sellers to discuss sale items. That has to be open to abuse.
