blogs.ebay.com Sorry I don’t get it?



I have not read the daily commentary yet, as I have been to busy dealing with a sick kid, a speech and presentation that is in final markup and about a million things to do with Podcast Awards and our pending new site launch. Yea life is good. Not to mention I am way overdue on a submission to Chris.

Anyway had a reader IM this to me tonight, and I’m sorry who the heck wants to have a Blog on ebay, building someone else brand is not my idea of good business sense, then againI have only bought 2 items off ebay in the past year, and the only reason I did was because I did not need new equipment.

My prediction blog.ebay.com will bomb and I have not even explored the site. Sad but it does not even excite me enough to go beyond the landing page. [blogs.ebay.com]


Gmail Scam Used by Phishers to Gather Personal Data



Internet e-mail scammers are using the popularity and allure of Google’s Gmail service to phish for personal data, including e-mail addresses and passwords. Gmail e-mail accounts are one of the most coveted holdings for hip and techie Internet users. A quick eBay search proves the popularity of invitations to join Google’s upcoming e-mail service that offers 1GB of mail storage.

The current Gmail phish reads “The Gmail Team is proud to announce that we are offering Gmail free invitation packages to the existing Gmail account holders. By now you probably know the key ways in which Gmail differs from traditional webmail services. Searching instead of filing. A free gigabyte of storage. Messages displayed in context as conversations. Just fill in the form below to claim your free invitation package.”

Dave’s Opinion
Phishing, commonly used via e-mail and the web involve conning unwary users into releasing private data. The cons are best known for their attempts to garner AOL, Citibank, and eBay login usernames and passwords; however, there seems to be no end to how the cons can be applied.
