Recently we've been hearing about a ton of ideas for apps on the Apple Watch. Good ones like games which play well with the small screen, and bad ones like bombarding the device with advertisements.

In a new report from AppleInsider, it looks like eBay may be looking for a solution so that users of the service and Apple Watch wearers will never be out bid again. AppleInsider points to eBay's careers webpage on LinkedIn, where an ad reads an ideal candidate for the job listing would "design and implement elegant solutions for the Apple Watch that will complement our core iOS eBay app".

Imagine being out bid, then bidding with again with a tap on the wrist.

Whatever eBay is cooking up, the Watch app will be developed by the company's New Technology Group in Portland. It's worth noting that eBay's New Technology Group will also be developing apps for CarPlay and Apple TV.

Apple's CEO Tim Cook finally came clean recently, stating that the Apple Watch will be released in April, starting at $349. However, rumors have been flying around that the battery life may hamper the device.
