Microsoft buys Skype
Skype has been up for sale for a while now, but only recently, Microsoft decided it was time to take out their (huge) wallet and set their eyes on one of the most popular IM client in the world. Skype has a lot to offer Microsoft, with over 405 million people with Skype accounts, although Microsoft's intentions may be unclear at the moment, There are many ways Microsoft can pay of this huge deal, including the fact that millions of people a day make paid calls with Skype. When all of this goes into Microsoft's pocket, Microsoft can easily turn the tables with this 8.5 billion dollar deal (Microsoft's biggest deal ever).
