Not to be out-done, it looks like Google has gotten into the act.  Now they also have a shortener.


Here is a random e-bay long URL that has been shortened by google:

http://goo.gl/4PaqY

To shorten a URL, copy it and then go to http://goo.gl/ and paste it in.  When it returns the shortened URL, copy it and paste it into whatever you are trying to do.  It works just like tinyurl.com, except that if you have a Google ID, you can log in and keep a record of the shortened URL's you have created, and it shows the number of hits that shortened URL has gotten.
