Microsoft Has Bought Skype

Microsoft is buying out Skype. 

The software giant was in negotiations with the popular Internet-based phone service last night to purchase it for seven to eight-billion dollars.  This morning, there’s confirmation of an eight-and-a-half-billion-dollar cash deal.  That makes it one of, if not the biggest merger in Microsoft’s 36-year history.
