Play Bid and Buy from your Couch! (eBay on Media Center )
Into eBay, but not interested in hanging around your computer waiting to jump in and snipe that last second bid? Well, now you can bid on auctions with your TV remote! I was down in Las Vegas for the Ebay Developers Conference and I met up with Christoph Buenger from Scendix. Scendix specializes in writing apps for Windows XP Media Center Edition and has produced mceWeather (great weather forecast display), mcePhone (Skype calls from the couch!) and mceAuction (eBay!). Check out the video and let us know what you buy (or in my case, try to buy, I never seem to win ... not enough patience I guess) through eBay!
