Comments Off

An anonymous bidder pays more than 130,000USD for Princess Beatrice’s Hat on eBay. Now that's a royal price for the royal hat.

A Philip Treacey creation, the controversial headpiece worn by Princess Beatrice last month at her cousin Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding fetched £81,000 (around $131,648), on eBay last Sunday evening.

The hat’s eBay page described the hat as a “unique sculptural celebratory headpiece in delicate tea rose silk.” The page has been taken down since the item has already been sold.

The proceeds will be given to UNICEF UK and Children in Crisis. The bids were more than 64 including one from Australian children’s TV stars The Wiggles, according to the Guradian.

“I’ve been amazed by the amount of attention the hat has attracted,” the Princess said.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to raise as much money as possible for two fantastic charities,” she added.

Head of Social Platforms Bids Yahoo Goodbye

Written on August 30, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

Comments Off

Yahoo's recent days have been threatened by major departures. One main man on the job has headed outside the door, following another's resignation, and found an open door in a new company.

Vice President for Social Platforms Neal Sample has exited Yahoo to enter the eBay pool, where he will be the e-commerce’s chief of architecture. This move happened within the same week when Yahoo Communications Product Head Jason Titus also left the Internet giant.

Sample used to manage the recently launched social media and publishing platforms. Yahoo is a late bloomer in the social networking landscape, and the integration of Facebook and Twitter into their service has just been put into play.

Sample and his colleagues were the force behind the all-encompassing strategy to employ all social networking services and coming up with an understable social dashboard for global users. Needless to say, Sample’s move is a big loss to the company at this point.
