Microsoft to Acquire Skype

Today, Microsoft announced that it would acquire Skype.   I think this is a fantastic acquisition. Skype has 107 million users each month who are connected for more than 100 minutes on average. Combining Skype with XBox, Kinect, WP7, etc… adds to, and enhances both sides of the equation. This is going to be a great year.  I am looking forward to these opportunities.
