| | Re: ebay app 188.8.131.52: why does it talk to webtrends.com ?
There aren't any obvious eBay modules that go with Webtrends. Even if there were, you still can't change the permissions for any of the eBay modules.
I would still use the RIM app before using a 3rd party app, though. I'm sure as Daphne points out that it has to do with advertising. Usually, though, if any information is collected RIM will post a notice in the agreement when you first run the app after install.
