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.

Answer:
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.
