Like it a lot.

It is evidence that we think it is successful.

It has expanded from one market to three, then 325. we just bought a combo -- another company that will help us expand across the u.s. amazon made a lot of headlines talking about delivery by drone.

They are working on that.

Are you going to show me one?

We're not working on long- term fantasies.

We're working on things that will change the experience today.

You think it is a long-term fantasy?

We will see.

Other companies are also looking at delivery.

Do you think that -- how do you have an edge on that?

We have active consumers that come to ebay intending to shop.

We have paypal, which makes payment easy and safe.

We start with an enormous advantage of an ecosystem and a willingness to partner with retailers.

Not compete.

There will be a lot of people trying different innovations.

Our focus is on delivering a great experience to consumers, both here in the u.s. and around the world.

Speaking of drones and google's moon shots, do you think that is important?

Should you have that mentality to work on or think about far-reaching ideas?

I think -- and is important.
