But eBay CEO Meg Whitman is less than satisfied. "The monetization efforts we outlined at the time of the (Skype) acquisition are not developing as quickly as we had hoped," she said in an earnings call today. That will teach the company to overpay.
As many know, Skype is doing away with their free service and becoming a fully paid VoIP provider. On a related note, eBay along with Skype was able to take a sigh of relief when a racketeering charge against the company was dropped. The charge was brought against them by P2P giant, Streamcast Networks.
