Hope for eBay?

Undoing Meg Whitman’s eBay – Bits Blog – NYTimes.com

More subtly, but maybe more important, Mr. Donahoe is backing off from Ms. Whitman’s initiative to take on Amazon.com and make eBay an important player for the purchase of new, current-season goods. Her acquisition of Shopping.com was part of that, as was the move to expand features such as eBay stores on the main site.

The new focus seems to be on making eBay into an outlet shopping experience.  I suppose this might be half a step in a better direction.
