Skype is kat in ‘t bakkie voor Microsoft

Microsoft neemt internetbelbedrijf Skype over voor $8,5 miljard (ongeveer €5,9 miljard). Dat maakte Microsoft vandaag bekend. Het is de grootste overname in het bestaan van Microsoft. Met Skype kun je via internet gratis met elkaar communiceren, met of zonder beeld.

De overname van Skype is een strategische zet. Microsoft gaat zich hiermee mengen in de strijd om de mobiele- en internetcommunicatie. Een terrein waar nu met name Apple en Google de dienst uit maken.

Microsoft zal Skype integreren met de Xbox en Windows Phone. Daarnaast kunnen gebruikers van Lync, Outlook en Xbox Live via Skype communiceren met andere gebruikers. Microsoft blijft ook de ontwikkeling van Skype ondersteunen voor platformen die niet van Microsoft zijn.

Skype werd in 2003 gelanceerd door Niklas Zennström en Janus Friis die een technologie hadden bedacht om bestanden online te delen: het in Nederland ontwikkelde Kazaa. In eerste instantie was was Skype een tool voor nerds. Later ontdekte de massa de voordelen van het programma en al snel kreeg Skype ook concurrentie, onder andere van Scydo.

Skype, dat vorig jaar 7 miljoen dollar verlies leed, begon onlangs met het tonen van advertenties in het programma.

You want the mail sent to a friend that you know will not give up your real location. To say thanks for all his help over the last couple of years I will be posting a picture of him on this blog.

    First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    recommendations or hints? Thank you!

    Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    wonderful blog!

    Hit the DONE tab, and the phone should register and
    you can make and receive calls from your Shore – Tel. Automotive
    pioneer Henry Ford first built a car made of hemp fibre and resin more thgan half a
    century ago. This provides the same overclocking and underclocking benefits as the above,
    but is specifically for MIUI.
