eBay Looking Over Shoulder at Google




eBay’s Chief Executive Meg Whitman told analysts that she is fully aware of the threat Google poses to them, according to the Mercury News.

Whitman acknowledged the threat from Google’s growing online database of products, known as Google Base, and from the Mountain View company’s test of a payment service it calls the Google account. However, Whitman said eBay was competing from a position of strength.

Would that be the same position of strength that Yahoo, Alta Vista and Excite once had? ;-)
