Haggle, haggle, haggle

TechCrunch has an interesting article about a new start-up, fididel, which has a new take on the eBay model with real-time haggling. Rather than time intensive auctions, vendors and buyers can meet in live “chat-rooms” where they go-to-head to haggle a price. TechCrunch’s Jason Kincaid had a go and found it somewhat lacking in charm.

I think, while eBay is still obviously a very viable and stable service, it’s become a bit stale and any new ideas to develop online peer-to-peer selling are welcome.

Crap name, though.
