After so many (unauthorized) services have been simulating RSS feeds for ebay listings over the years, eBay has finally offered them officially:

[www2.ebay.com...] week we're adding RSS support to our eBay Search pages. With this enhancement you can create a custom RSS feed that will deliver the results of your eBay Search to you via any RSS reader. Since we are integrating the RSS support with our Advanced Search pages, you'll have complete control over how you narrow down your search.

Note this sadly also means alot more garbage data for MFA sites.

Anyone else starting to notice ebay/paypal adding alot of new little features
seemingly to brace for Google's attack on their market with "Google Base" and "Google Payments"? Their PayPal side annouced their mobile payments service [paypal.com] this week too. They've been virtually silent for years until now.

The terms will likely prohibit certain uses of the RSS feeds. Of course enforcement of those terms is a different matter.

Both Google and Yahoo have terms preventing commercial use of their RSS feeds, but I see a lot of sites ignoring those terms.

Too bad their feeds don't validate.

Hey this topic went over like a lead ballon eh? Oh well.
