The end of SkyPal? (Hat-tip Exmosis)
WTF? Craziness, no?
What EBay should be doing :
a) make development of Skype plugins more accessible. (Note that the Skype home-page doesn't have a "for developers" link, how much excited discussion is there among developers about the potential of this?)
b) EBay have got a ready made social networking service in Skype's contact lists. The clever thing to do would be to find ways to build on that social network.
c) unify Skype, PayPal and EBay accounts (much as Yahoo and Google have been doing with the properties they bought)
