eBay - The giant online reseller may be another major online company planning on adding Bitcoin support. Sources told CNBC that eBay may be eager to expand Bitcoin support to include paying for items using the digital currency. eBay US and eBay UK users will be allowed to buy and sell Bitcoins on the mercantile exchange starting next month, a step in the right direction.

It's nice to see some of those companies are listing that they accept bitcoins.  I am not surprised that more companies are getting starting to accept this new ecurrency.  I'm sure there will be more in the coming year.

It's not really surprising Newegg is accepting bitcoins as a payment, considering they deal with purchasing hardware and software online.  They are popular with DIY computer builders who can build systems to mine bitcoins more efficiently.  We usually check what they have on sale on occasion.

Ah, eBay!  I can see where any Bitcoins I buy might end up going...  ;D  Would I be right in thinking that the seller would have to specify that they accept them, or if they didn't, would eBay themselves accept the Bitcoins and convert them to the seller's currency?  I am finding this a bit hard to get my head around! 
Bitcoin newbie - please excuse any silly questions!  :-D
