Could this be the perfect solution to both their problems? eBay desperately looking to increase revenues and Skype, well looking for a “fair” early retirement package (now that Google, Yahoo and MSN are greedily looking at VOIP)
The Wall Street Journal story was carried by Reuters:
EBay Inc. is in talks to acquire Internet-telephone company Skype Technologies SA for between $2 billion (1.1 billion pounds) and $3 billion, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.
I think $2 billion is a fair market price for a company which WSJ said in 2003 wouldn’t make it.
