Just got a notice from eBay of an "investor conference call" at 5 a.m. Pacific time, on an announcement to be made two hours earlier. Very unusual practice for eBay.

Honestly, I still don't see the logic at anything near that price, but it could be we'll find out shortly what eBay has up its sleeve.
