Rumor Has it – Google to Buy Skype?

Rumors seem to be making the rounds again about a possible eBay sale of Skype. With Skype revenues up and eBay revenues down, a sale doesn’t seem out of the question especially when it’s obvious Skype has never really fit well with the eBay business model.

Google buying Skype has been reported before, but the latest round of rumors seems to have originated in the UK and spread from there. Buying a leading VoIP service like Skype might not be a bad move for Google. Chances are, however, that if they do decide to buy they won’t be paying the $2.6 billion that eBay paid for Skype.   For cash rich cos. it’s a good time to swoop in and take advantage of cos. reeling from the economic downturn.

    Might be a good idea so that Google can create a better interface for conference. Make it as good as Macromedia right but a cheaper price.
