Microsoft is buying Skype
One is the giant business, whose software powers more than 90% of the world's
computers. The other is the firm, which has revolutionised the way many
communicate. Now Skype is being swallowed up by Microsoft.
It's just eight years since Skype started helping people to make calls over the
internet for nothing, and this is the third time it's been bought and sold.
Microsoft has been struggling to prove it can compete with the likes of Google and
Apple. Now as it tries to make an impact on the mobile-phone world, it wants Skype
to help it become a bigger force.
Skype is now used by 170 million people around the world (each month), not just on
their computers, but on the move on their mobile phones and even on their tablet
Microsoft wants to tap in to this connected community, but it's paying a huge price
for a business that isn't even profitable.
Rory Cellan-Jones, BBC News.

Its no secret China has been booming while the West declines. In fact, its been
growing so fast its expanding overseas, too: buying up businesses in the UK, U.S. and
elsewhere. So, how worried should we be?
Napoleon once said, apparently. Let China sleep because when she wakes shell
shake the world.
Indeed, for much of the industrial revolution, China was taking a nap so to speak. But
in 1978 things began to change. The Communist country encouraged private enterprise and
unleashed its biggest asset: 975 million citizens.
Where then ensued mass migrations to urban areas where people took up jobs in
factories to manufacture goods for export. Since then the economy dubbed the dragon has
doubled its slice of the global economy and its predicted that by 2016 China will be the worlds
biggest economy.
