eBay Buys Skype for $4.1 Billion?

Skype-1 Well, I like Skype, I like eBay- it seems the rumors might be true– According to a BusinessWeek article, eBay will be holding an “investors conference call” at 5am PST for an announcement to be made 2 hours before. Since the eBay, Skype talks began early last week, there’s been speculation on whether or not this will happen. An article on MarketWatch, which was last updated at 11:40PM EST (Sept. 11), states eBay and Skype are in the final stages of this deal and would cost as much as $4.1 billion. Time to finsih my Skype-eBay payphone I guess. Thanks Sean! Link.
