Ebay paid roughly EUR 1000 per paying user (assuming an average $30 p.a. revenue per user). Blackberry recently traded at $4000 per paying user. Lots of upside!

"If you take the elements of eBay, including the micro-payments capability of Paypal and, now, the IP-based communications capabilities of Skype, we may be seeing the formation of the next Reuters."

My summary. Lots of interesting links:
