Yahoo! CEO Outed As eBay User

from the oops dept

I guess you can call it research, but it’s generally not a good thing when the CEO of a big company (even if he is the outgoing CEO) shops at his competitor, and seems to do so regularly. Some investigative research by the Washington Post has turned up that Yahoo! CEO Tim Koogle is a big eBay user, and recently bought a car and a wallet from the site – though he was outbid in his attempt at buying a pair of jeans. You can see that he’s been spending quite a lot of time on eBay from his user profile. You’ll also be happy to know that Mr. Koogle is a model eBay citizen according to his feedback. The feedback indicates that Koogle has been a loyal eBay user since back in 1998.
