Microsoft bought Skype for 8.5 billion in cash


Well, it is official now. Microsoft has bought Skype for 8.5 billion dollars in cash. Now that is a lot of money to be paid for such a product. Some people said that Microsoft overpaid. But no matter who says what, Microsoft now owns Skype. Oh, the horror of it all. Does that mean we will have to merge all our usernames and login via Microsoft Live? Will Skype be a web-based app that will run in Hotmail? The future is not so clear but I can see that there will be some changes coming, and that right soon
