Billionaire floats eco dream on sailing soda bottles

I guess that's modernisation . . .

. . . no so much a ship in a bottle,

more a bottle . . . .

eBay UK pimps users' privacy for targeted ads

There is an alternative . . .

I too used to use ebay but about two years ago started looking for alternatives.

I found and now use www.specialistauctions.com. Yes they are smaller and don't get the volume of traffic BUT my sales are now pretty much what they used to be on what they call evilbay or the dark side on SA.

If you buy or sell collectables then take a look - they are the official online auction partner to the Football League, loads of cricket and rugby clubs, the British Odrnance Collectors Assc, Compact Collectors Club and loads more.

The best bits? No listing fees, no image fees, no fees at all other than a very reasonable 3% end of sale fee. No stupid feedback rules, no ridiculous payment rules, no advertising (not even a standard banner ad), customer service you wouldn't believe and much more.
