Is Google About To Buy Skype?

Posted in Tech by Neil Koster on January 27, 2009

skypegoogleIt is rumoured that Internet giant Google is about to buy Skype from Ebay. Now Skype is by no means in financial difficulty. Revenues  for the period October – December 2008 rose  by 26 per cent alone. It does appear Ebay are trying to sell Skype to raise some capital and hopefully replenish their ever decreasing revenue as the World walks away from online bidding. Ebay site traffic has dropped drastically over the past few months and while some feel this could be regained as the current financial climate should force more online bidding/selling – others in the industry are not so optimistic about Ebay’s future.

I say sell and blow the  cash on a used motorbike!
