ebay bidding

Anyone bidding on ebay try this app. Simply sign into ebay and set a max bid and it will bid up to 3seconds before the end of the auction. It won me a mint dc25 animal for 32.50. Pictures below

Lol I just do that manually!

Its the thrill of the hunt, hovering over the place bid button with 8 seconds to go

I used to use a programme called sniper with auction stuff on eBay.

I click the blue "place Bid hyperlink without entering a price. then I enter my max price (an odd number) and add 0.1p after it. It is like sniping, eBay does it for ya. Also here's an anecdote:

I was bidding on a DC07, my dad used the method I mentioned above and he bidded 25.01 within the last 30 seconds. Then somebody bidded 25 at the last 7 seconds or so xD
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.
