I just figured it out.

You know how ebay owns payapl and ebay came first.

Bitcoin needs its own "ebay"

There's already Bidding Pond, and I believe another auction site I can't recall.

Bitbid, and a few others, but biddingpond seems to have the most actvity.

Ebay is an auction site.  PayPal is one of the payment methods for sending payment.  Bitcoin is another.

It is happening.

      "For this auction I am willing to take bitcoin or paypal."

In addition to seeing Bitcoin appear in more listings and profiles, I expect to see ClearCoin start appearing as an escrow method.  Combining bitcoins for payment and ClearCoin for escrow is a combination that has so going for it.  There's almost no other alternative for affordable escrow for $100 or less purchases.  Add in the #bitcoin-otc gpg Web of Trust and there no reason these tools can't be used by a wider user base.

Ha!  What are the odds of finding $100 worth of data on those drives?  Hopefully better than the odds (0%) of recovering 2 grams of gold out of the box.  Sorry, off topic, but I had to chuckle.

For what it's worth, I'd love to see ebay offer BTC as an optional currency for sellers to specify.

I routinely ignore posters with paid advertising in their sigs.  You should too.

So I was about to post an item on biddingpond until I notices a posting fee.

It needs to be free, like craigslist or kijiji.

BiddingPond is free to list. They charge for uploading images to their server and for featuring/bolding/etc. And last I knew, every account got their first 5 BTC of listing fees free.
