In this economy, eBay's bid to pay $1.5 billion for PayPal might seem excessive, even for
the likes of the auction giant. And while many analysts believe eBay will get its money's
worth, others are not convinced. AMR Research analyst Louis Columbus told the E-Commerce
Times that he believes eBay and PayPal arrived at a fair price. However, Morningstar
analyst David Kathman noted that "lots of things can go wrong, as so many Internet
companies demonstrated over the past few years."

I am just wondering if EBay will make PayPal give up all its involvement with Porno, Live Sex and other Adult Entertainment Sites, which I would imagine accounts for a major part of its income. Also, when will PayPal be forced to abide by the laws and rules that other Credit Card Processors are required by Federal and State Banking Laws to observe? At present, they just ignore these rules to do what is in their best interests, from my experience.

What was your initial reaction to news of the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack?
It demonstrates that all critical infrastructure sectors are at high risk of disruption by cybercriminals.
Everyone will be paying for this attack in the form of higher energy costs.
Governments need to work more closely with private industries to protect networks for the sake of public safety.
It's a global problem. An international alliance must be formed to hold the perpetrators accountable and prevent future attacks.
