eBay Buys Skype

(Via Scoble) Martin Geddes calls it the synergy of P2P ecommerce and P2P VoIP. Jeff Pulver agrees that future historians will call it "one of the great indicators of the historic transformation in communications".

Telcos and banks beware: eBay bought Skype yesterday.

The sad part is, Filipinos are not into skype. It's either they don't know about it or they just don't have a freaking microphone. They'd rather type or call by using Sun Cellular. haha.

Filipinos will buy into Skype eventually, despite the howls of our telco giants, for the same reason we buy into Sun 24/7.

We love free stuff. ;)

Oh yeah, sure. Especially when all that "free stuff" is something you can pass as "ORIGINAL" and "your own".
