    Microsoft Buys Skype for 8.5 BILLION dollars.

    Not droid related obviously but WOW, 8.5 Billion dollars??? It's the largest acquisition in Microsoft's history.
    Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!

    Hatred is by far the ugliest trait any human can possess (think about it)

    I think it'll be interesting to see how this goes down, Android and Skye are tight, and now an enemy OS (windows phone 7) owns it.

    I doubt it'll make a difference w/ Skype on Android phones. Huge corps are smart enough not to block use of key things on other corp's stuff. Like you can use itunes on a Windows comp etc
