eBay cutting a load of staff
This comes after news that they are about to split away from their long running association with PayPal.
ebay dropped the news when they were unveiling the fourth quarter earnings report and they bugled in a statement that it wanted to refocus the businesses and ensure it was "set-up to compete and win".
