    I guess it's for when people can't get to a computer, as well as not wanting to be outbid at the last minute. There's another one called Lotsnipe, I don't know how they work though.

    There are loads of auction snipers. Be careful when picking one though, as they need your password so unscrupulous people could set one up to steal ebay accounts.

    they are legal, why wouldn't they be? It doesn't mean you'll win the auction every time or anything....

    They would also be impossible to detect - it's not like they alter the data sent to ebay, it's all done on your end.
    To be honest, I doubt they would help THAT much. Mainly because you have no idea what maximum bid other people have put on the item, so you might "snipe" a bid in at the last second, but that bid still might not be high enough to win.
