EBay to buy Skype?

EBay is in talks to acquire Internet-telephony company Skype Technologies for $2 billion to $3 billion, in a deal that would represent a dramatic shift in strategy for the world's largest online auction site, reports the WSJ.
It's a done deal now apparently.

Here's the eBay page announcing it.

And here's the news on the Skype site.

It should be good and will make a lot more people aware of what skype is.

Someday soon I will post about my family's recent explosion in Skype usage since I moved to NYC.
I appreciate your post, thanks for sharing the post, i would like to hear more about this in future
