Short Take: eBay hit by six-hour outage

Less than 24 hours after eBay updated the design of the site, the popular auction was hit by a six-hour outage. The site is currently up and running. Per its policy, eBay has extended for 24 hours all auctions that had been scheduled to close during and immediately after the outage.
