Online auctioneer eBay had a first quarter to crow about, but it wasn't enough to make its management more bullish about the company's future -- much to the dismay of investors. Shares of eBay fell US$3.58, or 8.9 percent, to close at $36.77 Thursday on the Nasdaq Stock Market. After posting a profit that matched analyst estimates and exceeded its own expectations, eBay disappointed Wall Street late Wednesday by sticking with the same financial outlook it provided three months ago.

eBay Shares Slide Despite... Let em slide!

Ebay has what no other company has and will benefit from all the incorrect analysis of IT's performance and threats to IT's existence. Ebay will continue to make money and grow far beyond expectations. Ebay users know the difference. I reccommend a strong BUY as Ebay slides into home-plate!

Is native advertising good for journalism?
Yes -- It's a reasonable source of additional revenue for media outlets to support their traditional editorial efforts.
Yes -- Paid-for articles can contain useful information, but readers might bypass them if they look too much like ads.
Maybe -- But only if it's clearly labeled as paid-for content.
No -- I don't trust any information from media outlets that cloak paid-for content as objective journalism.
No -- Native advertising is confusing and devious, and it threatens the fabric of traditional journalism.
I Don't Know -- I don't understand what native advertising is.
