Default Ebay might sell Skype

THE DARK SATANIC RUMOUR MILL is suggesting that Ebay might be wanting to shift its Voice over IP outfit Skype.

The Times Newspaper, quoting industry insiders, said that Ebay signalled its intent last week after John Donahue, its chief executive, described Skype as a "great stand-alone business".

Such talk apparently means that Ebay would be happy to dump Skype if it were offered a cheque with enough zeros on the end of it.

It is looking like Ebay could do with the cash as it had a disappointing fourth-quarter profits, which had been hit by slowing consumer spending.
