eBay acquires Skype for $2.6B
After much anticipation over the past week, US auction giant eBay has just announced they’ve bought Skype for about $2.6bn (Â£1.4bn).
The Skype website has full information about the deal:
What does this mean for every Skype and eBay users? Integrated conference calls into eBay auctions I guess. Now, buyers and sellers will also be able to talk to each other before closing a deal. It’s also possible to have video streams later on. Just stretch your imagination.
I just hope support and customer care isn’t as inept as Paypal.
