IBM + Skype ... Google + Skype ... ? + Skype

Skype_logoThe speculation around the future of Skype continues to increase as questions regarding their position within eBay, their overall strategy, revenue opportunities and even the level of customer support hint at strategic and tactical problems.

That is not to say that Skype is about to join the dead-pool.  Rumors abound that Skype is "in-play" and a number of suitors are at least talking and listening.

To me it seems the strategic opportunity for revenue growth should be focused on removing strategic constraints (explicitly or implicitly linked to eBay's model & management) and creating revenue streams from applications riding above the "connecting" layer.
