Ebay choose Google for advertising

Google's press release has some details.

Advertising on Ebay isn't unexpected, though sellers may have concern that adverts will appear offering competing goods. What's odd is the "click to talk" announcement where buyers can talk to sellers - but using Skype OR GoogleTalk.

Ebay paid a lot of money for Skype (they own it) so promoting a competing (beta) service would seem strange.

Maybe it's all to stop Microsoft getting a foothold.
