Yahoo open pages continue to dribble out

Yahoo added an eBay application to the dashboard area of the new Yahoo home page in testing.

Yahoo is continuing to dribble out its open platform.

The company on Thursday added an eBay Anywhere application to the dashboard area of the new home page in testing. The eBay application allows users to monitor their buying and selling activities from the Yahoo home page. Other applications blessed by Yahoo include checking various e-mail in-boxes from the Yahoo home page, and down the road activity updates from social networks. The functionality isn't much different from what users can do with external applications built for Facebook or OpenSocial containers.

Yahoo supplied a video to show off the new home page since it is still in "bucket" testing, meaning that only random users will see the page, which was first unveiled in September. I am still waiting to be found by the randomizer.
