• eBay to buy Skype

    Fresh off the wires!
    Probably the oddest of all the reported bidders, it’s difficult to see eBay making any links between their existing empire and their new baby, but who knows. Google would have been a more likely buyer given its recent launch of Google Talk. The app is missing that certain something that Google are famous for having, but buying the biggest VoIP company would certainly have made up for it. Another rumoured bidder was NewsCorp, but perhaps the recent buyout of IGN was enough to quench their online thirst for now.
