eBay used to (probably still do) sidle with Google/AdWords, but Google's
potential to elbow eBay with their own service has set them apart. eBay held
talks with Yahoo and Microsoft about a month ago. They really fear Google
because there is a lot of money to be won by Google is they start auctions.
They already have Wallet -- a PayPal (eBay subsidiary) competitor.

eBay: write a page on sjksbckjsbdckjsd and you will have AdSense suggest that
you get your sjksbckjsbdckjsd from eBay right now. There are some
embarrassing example of such things. Every unassigned content wound up as
some arbitrary item/search on eBay

I hear/read about the same observations. The neighbours lawn always seems
