I was reading the new ebay acquisition of skype. Skype just a 2 year old company with over 200 employees is founded by Niklas ZennstrÃ¶m and Janus Friis ( http://www.skype.com/company/founders.html ), the KaZaa guys.
Did eBay pay $2.6 billion (will pay close to $4.1 billion) for a software? Skype has more than 54 million users, a country in its own. EBay paid the price for the kingdom not for the application which helps you chat free.
Ebay paid $1.5 billion for paypal making this deal the biggest ever. EBay, which believes in creating a city everyday @80,000 new members per day.
Hope eBay keeps it free 🙂
