When I was 18 years old, I bought a baby Louis Vuitton handbag off of eBay. It was about $400 and light blue. I loved it. Then the zipper broke, and when I took it to the Louis Vuitton store to get repaired, the snooty sales girl informed me that it was counterfeit. Eighteen-year-old me was incensed, humiliated and embarrassed, but I learned an expensive (if important) lesson: Don't buy designer goods off of eBay.

You just need to outbid everyone else who's interested, since there's only one pair in existence.

Literally hundreds of people are asking for more than $US1000 ($1298) per tape for everything from Beauty and the Beast to The Little Mermaid. Dozens more are asking for over $US10,000 ($12,981) per tape. One person is asking for $US1.5 million ($1.9 million) for 12 Disney tapes. What's going on here?

Picky shoppers only choosing the most perfectly-shaped and blemish-free produce at grocery stores has led to a tremendous amount of food waste. To illustrate how not-so-perfect fruits and vegetables are still perfectly edible, Hasbro has created a misshaped version of Mr Potato Head to serve as a spokesperson.
The Slo Mo Guys create some of the most YouTube-y videos out there. Their shtick involves shooting and smashing things and filming them in slow motion, which is what online videos are all about really (besides cats).
What appears to be an iPhone 6 prototype popped up yesterday on eBay and, though the listing has now been taken down, bids reached $US50,100 ($69,798).

eBay wants to know what the technology of the future looks like — and they need your help to do it. Overnight, a huge eBay branded dome turned up next to the IMAX in Darling Harbour, but it's what's inside that's important. Gathered in this tent are some of today's most interesting emerging technologies, but who's to say whether they will be adopted by consumers or fall by the wayside as just another fad.
It's a special day, and I'm not just talking about Force Friday Eve: It's my birthday! I've known for years that I share my birthday with a few interesting entities like Charlie Sheen. But there's one thing I did not know I shared a birthday with until today: Twenty years ago, a little company named eBay was born.
It's been said that if you don't go to the effort of painting your Warhammer 40K miniatures, you're missing out on the best part of the (insanely expensive) hobby.
