Something interesting on Skype.

Skype’s an interesting company to follow, founded in 2003.
Purchased by eBay in 2005 and sold in 2009.
And recently acquired by Microsoft for $8.5 billion, which means they paid $1,000 for each user.
Making many wonder if Microsoft overpaid for Skype.

Other Alternatives to Skype include Google Voice, FaceTime and Fring.
