eBay is adding 8 regions to the existing 53. The new additions are
Baltimore, MD, Washington D.C., Oakland, CA, San Jose, CA,
Orange County, CA, Richmond, VA, Albany, NY,
Albuquerque-Santa Fe, NM. They will launch the regional home
pages sometime in the next few weeks.

eBay announced at 12:26PT on 13 Jul, that they have received
reports that several major service providers are having problems.
Because of this, if there are problems connecting with the eBay
site, it is not eBays fault, as their system is available. This will
also mean that they will not refunds fees for auctions effected
by these problems.

eBay reported the Feedback Forum was down for about 10 minutes,
beginning at about 15:35 PT. They reported the problem as
fixed at 16:15 PT .

eBay will conduct regularly scheduled maintenance on Fri
14 July, between 01:00 PT and 05:00 PT. As usual this might
cause search updates to be 12 to 15 hours behind on Friday
and Saturday.

eBay is ending live Butterfield and Butterfield auctions in Chicago
and cutting back 5 percent of its workforce. They will convert the
Chicago offices into an Internet auction office in support of eBay's
Great Collections Web site. This report from Bloomberg and WSJ.
