RadioShack “Buys” Your Old Gadgets

$89.25 for my Acer Aspire 3623WXMi laptop and $229.71 for my HTC P3300 PocketPC phone… Here’s what you are looking at with the new RadioShack trade-in program.

The program allows you to trade in your old stuff (GPS, cell phones, video games, computers, laptops, mp3 players, etc.) and receive a RadioShack gift certificate in return. If you have stuff lying around in your closet and haven’t got the time to list it on Craigslist or eBay, this might be a good alternative for you.

In an effort to protect elephants, and reduce the illegal traffic of ivory in and out of the originating countries, eBay will completely prohibit auctions that showcase products containing large amounts of ivory.

The new policy will take effect in December 2008 and will be enforced starting in January 2009.

eBay to Force PayPal Payments Only?

eBay & PayPal

Starting in October of 2008 (yes in just a few days), eBay will remove many payment options for most items sold on their auction website leaving only PayPal, ProPay and paying upon pickup.

Is this unfair business practice (or anti-trust)?
eBay says: “It’s for security and consistency”
