eBay on Cable TV, Buys More Int'l Classified Sites

Nothing radical in one sense, but the development is very interesting and another harbinger of — dare I say it — TV-Internet convergence. (Actually there won't be true convergence, but some mixing of TV and Internet on both mediums).

Separately, eBay bought two classified sites that it will fold into Kijiji.com (outside the U.S.): Gumtree.com and Loquo.com.

Gumtree operates in the U.K., Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. Loquo is in Spain and other European countries.

Quietly eBay is building a classifieds powerhouse outside the U.S. Also, remember that eBay now owns Rent.com and 25% of Craigslist.
