The war is heating up for sure. Although I have felt that Ebay has the most protected model, things can change. In internet time, they can change quick.
In the last few days, Google has launched a payment system and Edgeio has launched, what the media has slated, an Ebay Killer (LOL). In my opinion, the days of a totally dominant platform, like Microsoft had with it’s operating system (95 plus percent), are over.
I have read that as well branded as Google is, they control but 38 percent of the search market.
The consumer is the real winner. We get more features, more choices, more platforms, lower costs of business(especially communication), more customer’s to choose from, and lower prices for purchased goods.
Let the war continue……….
