      SB: “Voice is the new black. Seems like after all the hype of apps, the world still wants to connect in real-time and in many cases is willing to pay for such value. In the battle of voice, Skype, Google, Apple, telecom operators and independent outfits are gearing up for battle. The trillion-dollar land grab is officially on. – Apple launched FaceTime video chat. Google Talk is turning into the new pay phone. Oh, and Skype has filed for an IPO as well as announcing plans to enter the enterprise space. – But besides the indie stalwarts, who’s the dark horse in the room? – Facebook. – What should it do? How should it enter the space? The answer is clear. Buy Skype. – Four reasons why Facebook should acquire Skype.

      ATD: “You didn’t think Facebook would integrate with Google Voice, did you? – Actually, according to sources close to the situation, Facebook and Skype are poised to announce a significant and wide-ranging partnership that will include integration of SMS, voice chat and Facebook Connect. – The move by the pair – which have tested small contact importer integrations before – is a natural one for the social networking giant, which is aiming to be the central communications and messaging platform for its users, across a range of media. – Facebook’s goal, according to sources: To mesh communications and community more tightly together and add more tools to allow users to do so.The pair called it ‘strategic unified communications and collaboration partnership,’ and is centered on business and personal videoconferencing.

      Is that a good or a bad thing? :-O

        In some way it’s natural, isn’t it? VCs regularly have an IPO exit strategy that’s been interrupted by the financial meltdown (and several new legal requirements) during the last years. And Kedrosky’s observation is absolutely right: “investors competing to put money into companies that don’t need any more“. – The impact on the financial system is dubious. Maybe people have learned some lessons from the dot-com bubble? Kedrosky does not seem to think so: “There was another suitor for these companies, and that suitor was us. We just didn’t know it yet.
