Happy bDay to ebay: Wednesday's One Cup Of Java Challenge
Wednesday's One Cup of Java Challenge:
Today’s One Cup question asks you to name the company, founded on this date in 1995, that has had a role in selling a broken laser pointer, brussel sprouts, a MIG-21 fighter jet, the Pope’s Volkswagen, the town of Bridgeville, California, the original Hollywood sign, and yes, more than a few PEZ dispensers. Based on those clues, name this now 13 year old company, which had more than $7.5 billion dollars in revenue last year.
eBay. That broken laser pointer was their first item sold.
Recent controversies over eBay policies, including significant increases in seller fees, have spawned several new auction-based websites, including the Arizona-based fee free site http://artfire.com/, which specializes in handmade art.
