10/24   Anyone works at eBay?  I have a technical interview with them
        and would like to know in advance on what type of questions might
        be asked.
        \_ All your base are belong to us!
        \_ Just be arrogant, like say "If you're asking questions like that,
        you must really be desperate!" Or, "are you serious?" Even better,
        before you agree to go in, tell them you've been offered every job
        you've interviewed for, and are therefore requesting a technical test
        via email before conceding to a in-person interview, to make it worth
        your while. Worked for me. Wtf could ebay possible need anyway? None
        your while. Worked for me. Wtf could ebay possibly need anyway? None
        of this is rocket science.

7/31    Hi, I am looking for a monitoring recommendation for use at home
        with my MacMini and as a second monitor for my Airbook. At this
        point I dont want to buy a fancy Apple monitor -- will probably
        wait for then to announce a new one -- but price doesnt really
        matter [office buy], but it doesnt seem like there is any need
        to spend more than $500? Historically I've just gotten a decent

3/18    Why is a genuine Mac Book charger $60 when it's only $20 on eBay?
        I failed to see a difference in quality.
        \_ Why does popcorn cost so much at the movies? Why do car values
           halve the minute you take it off the lot? Why do you suddenly
           pay less when you become a senior citizen? There are economic
           reasons for just about every pricing puzzle.

5/23    I'm seeing a bunch of old German copy stuff w/ Swastika on it
        selling on eBay. Doesn't eBay ban Swastika? Or I got it confused
        with other stuff?
        \_ These are only banned in Germany.
        \_ and in France.

1/26    Bought my XSi kit with 18-55 and 55-250 for only $750. The price
        has since then jacked up to about $950 because of US $ and
        the end of Canon's $100 rebate. I'll be selling it back on
        eBay for a profit. Expect Canon to release something completely
        new and better for this year's PMA. Canon rules.
        \_ Canon encourages employees to go home early and make more

1/14    I'm an eBay power seller. In the past couple months I've had
        a bunch of people claiming that they never received their items
        and they're all from the AL, MO area. I'm going to start adding
        tracking (75 cents more) which will eat up my profit margin
        significantly since the items I sell are really cheap (sub $10
        and $5 items and eBay+PayPal are already eating up 10% of fees).

12/15   I have a few 100G and 200G drives that I want to dump. Do people
        actually buy used legacy HD on eBay?
        \_ Yup they do -- researchers doing articles on the lack of safety
           of data on computers often go to eBay, buy used hard drives,
           and mine all sorts of goodies from the not, or poorly, wiped

10/5    Google interviews, exposed. In another word, it's not very
        different from Netscape's former interviews, Microsoft's
        former interviews, and HP's former interviews when they
        were still in their infancy:
