Duncan tipped me off to a new video he just posted looking at mceAuction, an eBay add-in for Windows Media Center. Developed by long-time and highly respected Media Center developer Christoph Buenger of Scendix, this is a great example of the cool stuff you can do and winner of the, “eBay Star Developer Award 2006“.
New features include:
- Show item’s location in Google Maps®
- Get notification when you got outbid, your watched auction end in a few minutes, …
- Shows shipping costs, payment options, item’s attributes, …
- Shows all details for a seller (latest feedback, % feedback score, …)
- List of other items from a seller
- List of auctions in “my eBay” that are ending soon.
I can’t wait to see what Christoph and team comes up with using the Vista Media Center SDK and rumor has it he’s working on a Windows Sidebar gadget or two.
