I am not a big fan of Skype and haven’t been one for a long time. On the flip side, I have always liked Microsoft products for some reason. I just hope Microsoft can straighten Skype out or if they can’t, put them out of their misery.
The whole eBay/Skype thing didn’t make much sense to me. I know they thought that it would help buyer/seller communication but who really wants that? The best part about eBay was that you didn’t have to waste time talking with other people. You just clicked a bunch of times and a few days later you got your stuff in the mail.
The only time you should ever want to talk to someone is when you had a problem and needed to contact Tech Support, but since eBay always tried to stay above little things like buyer/seller disputes, it seemed odd that they would want to get involved, even in such a peripheral way.
I hope Microsoft gets their money’s worth. Part of me doubts it, but I wouldn’t be broken hearted if I was proven wrong.
