eBay iPad App Actually is Awesome

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 01:00 AM

"eBay pushed out version 2.0 of its iPad app a few days ago."

Not exactly known for apps but eBay has really come out with a great one with their latest update. And I have to agree with the reviewer when he asks Facebook if they are listening. I hate the Facebook iPad app. They need to hire the same guys that did the eBay app.

Your Chance to Win 20th Anniversary Macintosh!

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Classic Apple" @ 12:30 PM

"In 1997, I was watching "The X-Files," going to college, and using floppy disks in computer class. In 1997, Apple was showing off with the Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh (also known as TAM), a sleek and imaginative take on the personal computer."

Hurry though, the auction ends tonight! I think I'd rather have a couple MacBook Airs though. Or a MacBook Air and one of those fancy new displays!

eBay Introduces Their Own Mac App

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 08:57 AM

"Online auction giant eBay has embraced iOS with a variety of apps for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, leaving the Mac a browser-only experience -- until now. On Tuesday, the company introduced a free Mac App Store entry in an effort to make the shopping experience as browser-free as possible."

Not sure about you, but I really do like Mac applications. Now eBay has finally come on board the Mac App Store train after being pretty proactive with iOS applications. The app, which is free, will let you browse auctions, bid on items, buy items, etc. Pretty much anything you did from your browser you can do from the app. Well, except for selling. You can't sell items using the app, at least for now.

Apple Shuts Down eBay Sale of Steve Jobs Figurine

Posted by Joe Johaneman in "Apple News" @ 07:00 AM

"A Canadian eBay seller contacted AppleInsider on Tuesday to share that they had sold a popular, rare Steve Jobs figurine on the bidding site. It went for a final price of $1,125, but eBay soon after allegedly canceled the listing."

These figurines keep showing up, and Apple legal keeps going after the people who sell them. I can't say that I'm surprised by that. Steve Jobs does have a right to protect his valuable image. At the same time, I can understand a desire to own your very own Steve Jobs figurine. What do you think? Is Apple being heavy-handed here?

Mac Museum of Franklin Park Puts Inventory on eBay

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Classic Apple" @ 03:00 AM

"Vintage Macs come and go, Vintage Mac Museums typically tend to Grow. One particularly impressive Museum is Moving On. The Mac Museum of Franklin Park, NJ has been put up for sale on eBay."

The Mac Museum of New Jersey has put their collection up for sale, but you can only buy it whole. It ends on October 7th so head on over to eBay if you have a need for some vintage stuff, including a Lisa. So far the auction is just over $2,000.00 USD.

Simplify Your eBay Experience

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 08:00 AM

"We all have stuff around the house that is just itching to be thrown out or in this down economy, sold and given new life. For many, eBay has become the destination for recouping some dollars on these unwanted items. With the new free app Zuujit, selling and earning some cash for unwanted junk has become just that much easier."

The app is free, but Zuujit charges you $1.99 USD for each item you sell after using their program to post it on eBay. It does seem to simplify the process, but to be honest, I never found the eBay process that hard to navigate. Still, it is a free app and if you have stuff to sell, you might find it useful.

Want a Piece of Apple's Fifth Avenue Store?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 09:00 AM

"This one puts the "cult" back in "cult of mac:" someone is auctioning off a broken piece of glass from Apple's Fifth Avenue store on eBay. It's a step from the retail locale's elegant glass staircase, to be precise."

From the ad on eBay: "When these are new, they cost 10K to buy from the German glass-makers. So, since it's cracked I figure it's worth at least $2500, considering the steps are all custom ordered.You could use it as a coffee table on top of some cinder blocks, or just keep it for the sake of keeping it."

Attention Collectors! Apple I on eBay

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Classic Apple" @ 11:00 AM

"A few months ago, we provided details of an auction that featured a Mac that had been given to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry by Apple. If you missed your chance to pick up that prime item, now you have an opportunity to own an Apple that is even more rare: an Apple-1 (also known as the Apple I) that's currently on auction on eBay."

The auction is sitting at $50,000.00 USD, but that is the starting price since it hasn't received any bids. Interesting bit of history for a collector, but a pricey one!

eBay Updates Their App

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 12:00 PM

"eBay Mobile, one of our favorite iPhone business apps, just got better. This tool for on-the-go buyers and sellers lets you bid on items, check prices, and answer customers' questions."

eBay is utilizing the "push" feature of the iPhone 3.0 in their latest update, so you will get notifications for when items you are bidding on are getting close to ending or when you have been outbid. They have also integrated PayPal payments for some items as well as searching through completed items and descriptions.

Psst! Wanna Buy a Prototype iPhone? Too Late

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone & iPod Touch" @ 12:00 PM

"A set of iPhone prototypes from 2006 briefly made the eBay rounds this morning, with bids running more than $2,000 for the two phones (one non-working) before Apple managed to get the listing yanked sometime during the day."

Interesting setup, I'm glad they didn't use it though. Rather ugly, but I guess that is why they are called "prototypes" eh? The video of someone using it has been pulled from YouTube several times, but you can still see a copy of it on engadget. There is also some discussion in the macrumors forums, from January of this year, of a couple of prototypes that someone bought off ebay. He also posts some pictures of them and they look like the protorypes in the video. Not too surprising that Apple got them pulled from ebay the same day they went up for bid.
