    Please take the time to put some thought and substance into your posts/replies. SportsJournalists.com is a place for professionals and wants to maintain a favorable reputation in the industry. Take some pride in what you're writing and you'll help to solidify that reputation.

    "Lazy" posts will not be tolerated and may results in warnings/suspensions. Examples of these posts include, but are not limited to: Starting a thread where the body is just a link (offer your opinion, some substance, etc., not just a link); Copying and pasting stories without some form of analysis or comment (make sure you have something to offer if you are going to start a thread).

    I guess for a while, it looked like Facebook was the frontrunner to acquire Skype, although that was overblown apparently.

    Now they don't have to worry about that IPO.

    Have they found out a way to make money on it where eBay failed so spectacularly?

    Microsoft stock dropped this morning. That was not pleasant.
