With our unique blend of technology and tradition, we allow you to bid in traditional auctions without leaving the comfort of your home. Dying to find the last piece to complete your collection? Interested in a specific type if merchandise? Now you can access it!" - see their auction page - aj.

ibidlive.tv: Where online auctions are televised live! (Culver City, CA, USA link)
"ibidlive auctions are fun, easy, and LIVE. Auctions have been popular for hundreds of years, but until recently,
you or a representative had to be in the auction room to make a bid. Delayed bids, now popular due to the Internet, do not capture
the excitement of a LIVE auction. But with ibidlive, you can participate in LIVE auctions as a passive viewer or an active bidder.
All you need is a TV and a connection (and, I assume, a computer - aj. - the FAQ implies a computer monitor will do.) to the Internet
and you can bid right from your living room!
For information about auctions in the US contact ibidlive.tv at:

The Official Ebay Guide to Buying, Selling and Collecting Just Anything
by Laura Fisher Kaiser, Kaiser Laura Fisher, Michael B. Kaiser, Pierre Omidyar
And from one of 7 buyers reviews:
The Best Book on e-Bay (but we knew that anyway, didn't we?), March 3, 2000
"This book is put out by the people of e-Bay. And it seems the best for all Ebaysians. The Big Theory is that e-Bay will not tell you "insider tips". Not true. This book does tell you about "sniping" and they do tell you it's fair game. They even tell you how to do it! So I would forget this theory, primarily since it is absolutely false. This is a review on "The Official e-Bay Guide". But although it is the best book on e-Bay, it is not the only book on e-Bay. Some "sticklers" will even tell you that you need no books on e-Bay - 'Just follow the e-Bay tour.' Don't believe it! (also) credit to "eBay for Dummies" by Roland Woerner, Stephanie Becker,and Marsha Collier. ... Anyway, order those two books from Amazon.com IF you are on eBay or want to BE on eBay. Good luck.
