Google may acquire eBay’s Skype, voice ads to follow? – TECH.BLORGE.com

google skypeSpeculation is flying about Google potentially acquiring Skype, which has struggled to turn a profit for its current parent company, eBay. Google almost certainly thinks it can change the situation by dropping fees and adding advertising to portions of the Skype service.So far Google has done an excellent job of keeping content the main course with a side of advertising, but Skype represents different medium with a single dimension. In other words, it won’t make sense for Google to play ads in the background while you’re in a conference call.
