eBay to Acquire Skype

eBay to Acquire Skype?!? What the heck was eBay thinking? Nothing like straying from your core competence a little bit. Considering how quickly other folks are going to be building out similar VoIP services (think Microsoft for starters) this is sort of nuts. I don't know how they are going to translate any of the Skype user base over to eBay and the reverse even less so. Well, they say Skype has 54 million members (I would read that as a free member basis number) I think the pricing they paid was a little out of line. Get ready for ugly eBay ads in your Skype client!
