Microsoft buys Skype

It’s official, Microsoft is to acquire Skype company for a nice $8.5 billions. Earlier there were talks about Google buying Skype, but looks like MS beat them to it.

I’ve heard a lot of negative comments about this, however I’d like to stay positive and hopeful that acquisition will be beneficial for both parties involved.

Who knows we might soon see Skype replacing NetMeeting (yes it’s still out there!) and will be built into OS. And maybe, just maybe we finally see a freaking full screen Skype app for iPad!
