Ebay Bans Google Checkout

Has the war between Ebay's Paypal and Google's new payment site begun?

I'd say.

And I'd say that CNET is reporting on the digital version of the firing on Fort Sumter.

UPDATE: Digital Om explains how Google's marketing plan for a "nanosecond" between a customer decision to purchase and their purchase is a direct assault on the way that everyone on the Internet is making money. It can even been seen as an assault on the AdWords business model itself.

If that's true, than you can see why this is an escalation of the battle of the Internet robber barrons-- Ebay, Amazon, MS, Google and sometimes Yahoo!
