    Its really amazing how people sit back, relax infront of their monitors and decide to give a professional business opinion of why microsoft's purchase of skype worth 8.5 billion USD is not a good idea.
    For God's sake people, do you think microsoft will let go of this amount of money based on a hunch?
    There must have been hordes of analysts that have worked on this deal for at least a few months before deciding to buy skype!

    Only time will tell if microsoft will regret or enjoy their decision, but one thing for sure is that they must have done their homework before coming to this purchase conclusion.

    Besides, from what I have read, Ballmer is a very shrude business man. Not some oblivious idiot!

    As the article states, Microsoft has plans of integrating Skype with their products. it is an INVESTMENT for their computers, phones, and gaming platforms.
    I am sure, like most things Microsoft is involved in, will eventually pay off. They will be taking current Skype users and be adding so many more from their current products.
    This is going to make them more competitive in the market and will make waves in the likes of Apple. In end result, will be better for iOS and MacBook users.
