Kent Walker - Google
We think our current shopping results are useful and are a much-improved version of the text-only ads we showed a decade ago. Showing ads that include pictures, ratings, and prices benefits us, our advertisers, and most of all, our users. And we show them only when your feedback tells us they are relevant. Thousands of European merchants use these ads to compete with larger companies like Amazon and eBay.feedback

Sachin Bansal - Flipkart

This is a landmark deal for Flipkart and for India as it endorses our tech prowess, our innovative mindset, and the potential we have to disrupt traditional markets. It is a resounding acknowledgement that the homegrown tech ecosystem is indeed thriving and succeeding in solving genuine problems in people's daily lives across all of India.feedback

Stephen King

Restoring faith in accuracy and truth, restoring trust in responsible media – it's obviously a big job.feedback

Stephen King

We think it's really important to act now to keep dangerous trends from becoming the norm. A free and independent media is key to providing trusted information and critical checks and balances on those in positions of power.feedback

Gerard Ryle - International Consortium of Investigative Journalists

At a time when autocrats, demagogues, criminals, dodgy businessmen, and other shady characters are seeking to enrich and empower themselves at the expense of society, it is more important than ever that journalists can remain the world's independent eyes and ears, and root out corruption and wrongdoing. But more and more this kind of vital work is only possible in the non-profit sector.feedback

Pierre Omidyar - eBay

We sort of skipped the 'regular rich' and we went straight to 'ridiculous rich'. I had the notion that, okay, so now we have all of this wealth, we could buy not only one expensive car, we could buy all of them. As soon as you realise that you could buy all of them, none of them are particularly interesting or satisfying.feedback

Stephen King

What we've seen over the last 12 months particularly has been an increase in distrust - distrust in government institutions, in the media and in social media. Rumour has become the new currency and people are much more focused on believing what their peers say, and what their own political beliefs are telling them. We're trying to expose people as much as possible to a variety of different ways of accessing information and checking sources.feedback

James Ellington

Not that I know of. Definitely not in athletics. That's the challenge for me. I can be the first. I was the first athlete to sell myself on eBay. I like to be a pioneer.feedback

Keith Heddle

Most modern coins are never going to make money unless they are particularly rare – not a so-called 'limited edition' – or have been minted by mistake. Some of the most unusual historic pieces have risen dramatically in value over recent years.feedback

Peter Waddell

When investing in coins you are looking for scarcity. The problem with everything that comes out of the Royal Mint is that they produce so much of it, the market is flooded. Collectors looking for returns will be better off focusing on earlier coins. Most fairs still feature the odd box of junk, and they can have some hidden jewels. A friend recently found a gold coin in one such box and paid 10p for it. He sold it later for around £110, so there are still bargains out there if you are prepared to look.feedback

Peter Waddell

A good starting point for those on modest budgets would be Elizabethan coins. A lot of these turn up through the metal detecting community or as Civil War hoards are uncovered. A 1545 coin can still be had for anywhere between £30 and £70.feedback

Elizabeth Beckford

I think coin collecting has seen a big resurgence over the past five years. That made everyone start looking at their change.feedback

Alex Cassidy

These are possibly the rarest and most valuable ones to watch – it's possible some may slip through the net and into circulation over the next few months. Because of this, any potential die errors during production, which occurs when the dies have become misaligned, could be worth a lot of money. Punters should pay attention to both the floral crown on the reverse side for any rotations, as well as the Queen's head, which should sit directly above the new bevelled edge.feedback

Carl Icahn

PROGRAM IS BROKEN AND NEEDS TO BE FIXED IMMEDIATELY. The E.P.A., in my opinion, has gone way too far, has sort of run amok with these crazy regulations. All my life I have fought the establishment – from U.S. Steel, to eBay, to Apple. I have never shied away from it. I am not going to now.feedback

Ian Nicolson

It was so exciting when The Duchess of Cambridge opened the shop and we are really pleased to be able to sell the Boden hat on eBay to support our care services. I can't wait to see how much it sells for or whether the winning bidder lives in the UK or further afield.feedback

Devin Wenig

The fourth quarter of last holiday season was a really important moment. I think it was an inflection point where that was the end of retail as we know it. And I do think the restructuring of this industry is going to happen faster than a lot of people think.... the fourth quarter is the moment that people will look back on and say, That's when the current structure of the industry was irretrievable. And I do think you are going to see drastic changes in store footprints and what stores do.feedback

Devin Wenig

The Indian market is important to us. We're always looking at the possibilities to win in every market we compete in. But eBay India is a major player in that market, and we are investing in it, and we'll continue to invest in it.feedback

Devin Wenig

I'm not sure all the retailers are going to even make it, in a healthy economy, to this holiday season. And I do think you are going to see drastic changes in store footprints and what stores do. I think the complete death of stores has been greatly exaggerated. The consumer wants stores. The entire world will not be online. But there are both capacity and utility issues in retail. People don't like poor store experiences.feedback

Devin Wenig

Most people shop eBay in their passions and their interests – as much as the things they need, the things they love. But we know that there's a group of our buyer segment that want certainty. They want speed. I absolutely want the president of the United States to succeed. I'm the CEO of an American business and I'm an American citizen. .... With that said, we're going to speak up about issues that for us, aren't about politics, they're about our business.feedback

Tom Brady

It's unfortunate, because that's a nice piece of memorabilia. So if it shows up on eBay, someone let me know and I'll track that down. Those are pretty special ones to keep. What can you do? I'll take the ring and that's good enough for me.feedback

David Perkins

They shot it down with a Patriot missile. I'm not sure that's a good economic-exchange ratio. In fact, if I'm the enemy, I'm thinking, Hey, I'm just going to get on eBay and buy as many of these $300 quadcopters as I can and expend all the Patriot missiles out there.feedback

David Perkins

That quadcopter that cost 200 bucks from Amazon.com did not stand a chance against a Patriot. Now, that worked, they got it, OK, and we love Patriot missiles. I'm not sure that's a good economic exchange ratio. In fact, if I'm the enemy, I'm thinking, 'Hey, I'm just gonna get on eBay and buy as many of these quadcopters as I can and expend all the Patriot missiles out there'.feedback

Bridget Davies - eBay

EBay always knew that we had massive scale, but [advertising] wasn't our core focus. But it's actually not an adjacent business; it's a tool kit for brands and requires investing into it.feedback

Jimmy Fitzgerald - ServiceNow

No change in strategy. This search has been going on for the last 18 months, so we were really excited last week to hear that John Donahoe, who has a great history at eBay, and a very successful career as CEO of Bain and Company, is coming in as our CEO. Our research suggests that 40 percent of our working week, that's two days out of five, is spent on manual administrative tasks. With the push to increase productivity, we really have to drive intelligent automation into those two days, so employees can spend their time on more value-add activities.feedback

Andrew Wylde

I did lots of research and it all stacked up - I never thought it could be a scam.feedback

Gordon Crowhurst

I tried everything to report the scam but I got nowhere. The case wasn't logged correctly, and my bank never contacted the criminal's bank.feedback

Andrew Goodwill

Certain types of fraud are rising fast and banks are not prioritising the safety of their customers. It's the banks' responsibility to properly log, investigate and act upon instances of reported fraud.feedback

Alicia Schöppe

It was bit like in the movie Awakenings. Many of them have started eating independently again, they go to the toilet on their own, even some who were bed-ridden have got up.feedback

John Donahoe

The opportunity will be to expand beyond just IT and the chief information officer (CIO) into helping partner with the CEO to help them address their greatest needs.feedback

Frank Slootman - ServiceNow

The fact that the board has appointed John is a really strong statement that we are going to run this company and not view ourselves as a target of the activity.feedback

Sarah Hindlian

We believe Mr. Donahoe's decision to join ServiceNow, while it may remove near-term M&A speculation, should be viewed quite constructively as the company expands into a mega-software vendor.feedback

Frank Slootman - ServiceNow

This is not about me, this is about us really being very proactive, very strategic, very forward-looking about CEO succession. As many people know, it's very, very tricky to have a successful CEO transition, and you're going to have to strike when the iron is hot.... a year from now John's not going to be around.feedback

John Donahoe

Over the past year I've had a great opportunity to step back and survey the landscape, and the trend that just stood out is the role that cloud is having on both consumers and enterprise. Companies born in the cloud, like ServiceNow and Workday and Salesforce are fundamentally transforming how companies operate.... I think ServiceNow has a chance to be one of the great enterprise software companies of this era.feedback

Tom Brady

If it ends up on eBay, let me know. Someone stole my game jersey.feedback

Josh Olson - Edward Jones & Co.

They are clearly confident about the way the business is trending. It's going to be a question of whether they can execute.feedback

Devin Wenig

We are making progress. That progress will take time.feedback

Neil Saunders - Banana Republic

The various improvements the company is making are not, as of yet, generating significant traction with consumers. They are really about correcting deficiencies rather than putting eBay on an innovative footing.feedback

Devin Wenig

It's not a black or white issue, ... but the rhetoric matters. It matters to our employees, it matters to policymakers, and somebody's going to stand for responsible immigration, and we're one of the parties that does that.feedback

Devin Wenig

It's important for companies that have been built on trade and immigration like ours to stand for those values.feedback

Devin Wenig

We obviously want free trade and we hope that the rhetoric will dampen down.feedback

Joi Ito - Media Lab

For example, one of the most critical challenges is how do we make sure that the machines we 'train' don't perpetuate and amplify the same human biases that plague society? How can we best initiate a broader, in-depth discussion about how society will co-evolve with this technology, and connect computer science and social sciences to develop intelligent machines that are not only 'smart,' but also socially responsible?feedback

Vincent Payen

The first month of the year is a very active month on the selling side, particularly for fashion.feedback

Benjamin K. Glaser - Dealnews

While you can't expect to get very close to retail, there are many opportunities out there for those that want to sell their stuff.feedback

Michael Crane

In '70's New Jersey, the car was still a powerful image. That summer I bought my first set of wheels for two thousand dollars. It was a '57 Chevy with dual, four-barrel carbs, a Hurst on the floor and orange flames spread across the hood.feedback

Michael Crane

I am selling the whole collection. My love affair with Bruce has become more real. I'm moving on to some bigger projects. I started a non-profit and I am raising money for orphans and widows now, and it's kind of where my life has taken me.feedback

Sara Gruen

It never occurred to me that I'd have trouble getting rid of them. They were already selling at double, triple the manufacturer's suggested retail price, but I figured I could sell them at a profit and put a dent in the extremely hefty lawyers' fees.feedback

Sara Gruen

I have a fortune invested, only one venue to offload them, and in only three weeks they will magically transform into useless pumpkins that will take up space in my office forever, and have caused my financial ruin.feedback

Mike Zappa

We've seen the toy selling from $140 to $225 this past weekend for Black Friday.feedback

Nancy Zwiers

We recognize it may be difficult finding this in-demand toy. We have increased production and a whole new batch of Hatchimals will be ready to hatch in early 2017.feedback

James Impoco - Newsweek

I actually preferred the 'it's rigged' argument to the 'boy are they dumb' argument.feedback

James Impoco - Newsweek

Yet in this toxic brew of electoral politics in America, it became a thing, it went viral.feedback

Dennis Davitt - Harvest Volatility Management

Options are beneficial to buy before periods of volatility when people are not looking at high historical yields. So it's kind of like, the hurricane has just passed, and now you want to buy insurance on it. The options were priced for a volatile time, and now they're fairly priced.feedback

Ajay Mehta - Twitter

This looks like something dropped from a cartoon UFO, with balloons attached to slowly float down.feedback

Devin Wenig

As I travel to our offices around the world, I have the privilege to interact with people of countless nationalities and backgrounds. This diversity is one of the most valuable assets we have as we drive our business forward.feedback

Ivan Feinseth

Most of what is being sold on eBay is new product, and that can be bought anywhere for almost the same price.feedback

Josh Olson - Edward Jones & Co.

This has been about 18 months now that we've been hearing the same thing...we're kinda waiting for the returns on the investments.feedback

Mark Robben - Funko

I don't think we were prepared for how excited people would be, We wanted them to be limited, but we didn't know they would go that quickly in the morning.feedback

Ross Sandler - Deutsche Bank

We think EBAY is in the latter stages of its re-platforming, which is the time period where select internet stocks historically tend to generate the most alpha. There are few out-of-favor accelerating-growth stories with upside to estimates and a reasonably low valuation, from that perspective EBAY might be the best story in Internet heading into 2017.feedback

Michelle Malison - Euromonitor International

Acquiring Jet.com would allow Walmart to become more competitive with [online retail] giants such as Amazon and eBay.feedback

Paula Loop - PricewaterhouseCoopers

They're engaging more with the activists. They're willing to listen to them.feedback

Devin Wenig

We are planting the seeds right now to ensure that eBay is not only relevant, but a leader – a disruptor – in artificial intelligence.feedback

Scott Kessler - S&P Capital IQ

Weaker consumer spending in the U.K., perhaps due in part to Brexit uncertainties, could adversely affect eBay and PayPal.feedback

Russ Robertson

In general, these are considered speculative types of investments. You can get great returns, but it comes with high risk, unless you really know what you're doing.feedback

Gil Luria - Wedbush Securities

While it is safe to say Amazon won this holiday season, eBay clearly lost.feedback

Carl Icahn

We think this is a major move and will greatly enhance shareholder value. I have had several meetings with [CEO] Ursula Burns and applaud and respect her for doing what she believes shareholders want -- just as John Donahoe did with eBay and PayPal.feedback

Ken Sena - Evercore ISI

We are not recommending eBay as despite attractive value, we think growth of 2-5 percent is just not appealing enough where competitors such as Google and FB are making investments in product ads, customer match, and local targeting for the sake of higher seller conversion.feedback

Gene Munster - Loup Ventures

To return to industry growth rates, we believe eBay has to go beyond restructuring a product that is lower value than its core competition.feedback

Carter Harrison - Conlumino

While not a direct competitor in every respect, the growth of (Amazon's) successful Prime service has locked more customers into using its services and sites in a way that is unhelpful to eBay.feedback

Gil Luria - Wedbush Securities

It appears eBay is guiding to a decline in profit in 2016, which is very concerning.feedback

Christophe DeLoire - Reporters Without Borders

It is upsetting to note that after such a tragedy, certain people are trying to profit on the back of Charlie Hebdo's misery. We call these people the profiteers of Charlie at the expense of the decency and respect for the memory of those who lost their lives in defence of freedom of information and expression. This parallel trade is pathetic.feedback

Christophe DeLoire - Reporters Without Borders

We must at all costs avoid this issue being subject of a bidding war, so that it is read worldwide and sold at its price, and no more.feedback

Sam Hamadeh - Privco

It has created essentially the Google of China. It's created the Groupon of China. It's created the Amazon.com of China, the eBay of China and the PayPal of China. So if you can imagine one company, all in one stock, all at once, and in the fastest growing economy in the world, that's what Alibaba is. That's why this matters so much.feedback
