Beta registration for Wrath opened up on July 3, 2008. Wrath was released 133 days (just over 4 months) later on Nov. 13, 2008. I would predict that the Cataclysm beta would take just as long, if not less, to complete. However there is no guarantee, and I don't have any inside info on this.
I think the beta for Cataclysm will be shorter because Blizzard has really learned how to refine their development process. They've got it down to a science, and such laser-sharp precision on their part tends to lead to things being released on a shorter time frame.
Gamer am I asked:
"Why do people sell bags on the AH for more than their equivalent price to buy from a vendor? When I see six-slot bags on the AH for ten or sometimes 25 silver when I know I can buy those bags from a vendor for five silver, I just don't get it."
Someone will likely buy them. Who? Either people in a hurry and don't care that they're spending unnecessary gold, or people who don't know they can be picked up elsewhere for a fraction of the price. Is it unethical? Debatable. It's just taking advantage of two niches in the markets: those who don't care (or are too lazy), and those who are uninformed.

Amy Pond will be voicing the female worgen from the Tardis, although she likes to cosplay as a female belf.
