eBay UK Mobile


It won't be truly mobile until the bid sniping software works on cell phones, but eBay UK recently launched a mobile phone bidding service.

Practical Uses:

  • traffic jams :)
  • if your vintage watch or car break you can buy a replica within minutes
  • comparison shopping
  • haggling prices
  • seeing how much an item at a garage sale or flee market is worth

Impractical Uses:

  • shop for a new cell phone while your old one is broke
  • buying rare versions of DVDs...most of them are probably fake copies
  • listing items
  • buying haggis
  • buying high PageRank links or websites
