Skype, Microsoft and Hotmail
Microsoft bought Skype for 8500 million dollars which is till these days one of the most important software operations of the history.
According to CNN, the purchase announcement is not the news but the amount of users that Skype deals every day is nothing to be missunderstood.
Skype is an online message service with chat and video. It has more than 660 million users and if we add Microsoft Windows Live users we get over 1000 million users.
Although a lot of users with first class pc, smartphones and on line games use Windows Live Messenger, Skype and Microsoft will be one big service.
Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft said on a public statement that Microsoft has 5 big plans for Skype but no decision has been made.
