Bwahahahahahaa!

They bought part of a technology that relied on another part. This just proves that the people who run eBay are retarded, flea-infested monkeys.

I'm not worried. Joltid will just release their version and it'll take over where Skype left off and then the owners will sell it to some other dumbarse for another $2.6 billion :D

This would be crap. I'd need to find an alternative then teach my mum how to use it!

I wonder why eBay even bought Skype in the first place. It's nothing to do with their core business, they didn't secure the rights to all of the product, and now they're selling it off for a fraction of what they paid for.

Heads are going to roll, I expect.
