Microsoft Bought Skype for the Brand

Microsoft Bought Skype for the Brand

The fact that Skype has been in sale mode hasn't been a total secret. When Ebay sold off a massive chunk of the company, and the IPO kept being delayed, it was evident Skype was in need of a suitor.

Here we are nearly 6 years later and it seems Skype is now in the right hands.
