“I Support Net Neutrality…When It is Convenient”

July 17, 2006 - 0 Comments

SAN JOSE, CA – I recommend a recent interesting post on Tech Trader Daily. This is a blog on technology investing written from Palo Alto, CA, started and primarily written by Barron’s West Coast Editor Eric J. Savitz and (while Savitz is on vacation) currently subbed by long-time technology reporter Tiernan Ray.Here’s the kicker: “Ebay has added Google Checkout to the list of payment types users aren’t supposed to use…” yet eBAY author and blogger Scott Wingo says, “This is eBay flexing their trust and safety muscles to control the way sellers take credit cards…if they feel it starts to infringe on the PayPal asset. It’s ironic they would do this here, and in the same breath go to Congress and fight the Net Neutrality battle. You can’t fight for an open internet one day and then implement policies that close the walled garden the next.”Read the full posting here.
