    The New York Post created some buzz among those who didn't cut out of town early this (U.S.) holiday weekend by reporting Friday that Microsoft, for several weeks, has been discussing the possible acquisition of online auction site eBay.

    This is a desperate effort from Microsoft's point of view to regain some of its lost glory!

    This is a real biig news..
    Google is just on the verge of making an online trading site & Imagine MS taking over Ebay..
    I'd love to see that happen.

    If that happens,

    Ebay will render only on ie
    Ebay will work only on genuine windows. They will attach the wga on ebay.
    The OS community will start LEbay.
    Ebay will lose to LEbay

    PS: LEbay might be changed to a different name like LEbspire :)
