Che ne pensate di questo rumor? Sara’ mai messa in vendita Skype? Chi potrebbe essere un eventuale acquirente?
Una Skype forte potrebbe veramente cambiare a livello globale il mercato della telefonia, piu’ di quanto lo stia facendo attualmente.
Segnalo al riguardo, e piu’ specificamente al riguardo dell’ipotesi che Google possa acquistare Skype, un interessante post di Matt Veenstra di ieri:
Skype has doesn’t have an advertising revenue stream with Skype In and Out. This is attractive to Google as their revenue is very ad-based. In the future, there needs to be new revenue streams for Google’s stock to justify its price.
At the same time, Google would just love to intermingle Skype and AdSense. It would be great. Every time you click on an ad you get a free minute of long distance. Sounds like a good idea for the home user who wants to talk to his family in India. I can only imagine the number of clicks happening. Ads change as you IM your friends and start talking about the latest movie star gossip. This is completely in line with Google’s context sensitive advertising.
