Google to buy Skype?!


Woah, Google is going to buy Skype? This week's This Week in Tech Podcast makes that statement and it sounds pretty interesting, especially in conjunction with the Android mobile phone SDK.

Imagine a world where most phones are wifi-enabled and have VOIP. Instant free phone calls in those places where you have Wifi. Instant Messaging instead of SMS, and email instead of MMS.

Instant death to the Mobile Phone companies, which is also the long-term plan for the iPhone (in my opinion, anyway). That's mobile phone network providers, not Nokia, et al.
