Short Take: EBay goes wireless

EBay has teamed with SkyTel to offer wireless access to its auction service. Users will be able to monitor and participate in auctions via wireless devices, including pagers, cell phones, and personal digital assistants like the popular Palm Pilot. The service will notify buyers when they have been outbid or won an auction, and sellers will be notified when their items have sold, among other features.
