2.6 Billion eBay pays for Skype

That’s just a shocking amount of money. I am sure eBay knows what their doing. One thing for sure it will be real easy to pay your Skype bill with Paypal seeing eBay own Paypal. I must admit though I use Skype for about 50% of my calls now. The thing is these are all Skype to Skype calls which are free. I have had 8.93 Euros of Skype Out credits for months. I simply do not use Skype Out. Time will tell if it is a good investment. [news.com]
