  1. “It was the cabbie”. Cabbie and a Trader who didn’t know this was public,? No way. Almost all acquisitions are leaked if you look at equity call/put volume hours before the deal is on the wire. Just a caveat, I am speculating here, it’s an opinion in the wind with no basis in facts. Cheers.

  2. The cabbie story is one of the classic rumor/boiler room assertions of authority. Search the usual stock chatter message boards for how many times the cabbie overheard the whole thing.

  3. Hello – we hope you’ll forgive this question, but we are contacting as many sources of information about eBay as possible.

    We are a group of eBay UK shop owners who are very concerned about the massive loss of traffic from Google since October and the sudden (coincidental?) appearance in Yahoo searches of a new eBay Directory which no one seems to be allowed to join. http://uk.search.yahoo.com/search?p=best+ebay+shops&prssweb=Search&ei=UTF-8&fr=fp-tab-web-t-1&fl=0&vc=&x=wrt&meta=vc%3D

    Please could you let us know if you have any information about this – if not, we apologise for the intrusion. We have recently set up a blog at http://mysterybay.blogspot.com/ to act as the central point of co-ordination and this also contains further details about these eBay/Yahoo developments.

    Many thanks,
