Oh, goodie. Half.com is not going away. A few years after eBay acquired them, they've been threatening/promising to meld Half.com's model into eBay, but there would have been no way to sell an item at fixed price while listing it indefinitely. A lot of people, like me, are in no big hurry to get rid of the kinds of things you can list on Half.com (mostly media like books, CDs, and videos), and all the things that would make an eBay listing more like a fixed-price listing would have cost extra.
As it turns out, even with the announced for phase-out (it would have been in October), people were buying and selling on Half.com more than ever. I'm just glad eBay finally noticed it.
