Microsoft are planning to acquire Skype, the hugely popular service which lets people from across the globe connect to each other via audio similar to phone calls - it is set to cost them around $8.5 Billion.

But the biggest thing to come from this will be the planned merging of Skype and Microsoft products such as Xbox 360 and Windows Phone - boosting Skypes userbase up to around 170 million users.

Wooooshhh ! Dan was lighting fast!

That will come handy. Better than facebok implementation at least. My brother-in-law (I hate that word) lives in france. I can see my fiancee using the xbox to speak to him instead of her mac.

My halos, my gows... I know she even plays tomb raider while I'm taking a shower... and now skype. Damn you microsoft I picture myself reading more frequently in the near future!!

Now just need them to set a release date, when my dad goes to work abroad this is a very handy feature, especially because my laptop camera & microphone is screwed.
