Webware posts this interesting article about the possibility of Ebay partnering or selling Skype to Google. Without getting into all of the plumbing or technical implications, this seems like a home run for both.

These together change the game for telephony. With a nice combination of these, you don’t need landlines ever again. And, your cell phone mixed with WiFi could be a seamless operation.
