Skype appears to be down, or at the very least it is for a whole lot of users throughout Europe who are tweeting in a ton of different languages about their inability to connect. Many blame Microsoft, and even founder Bill Gates for the downtime, which is sort of strange because the multi-billion dollar acquisition of Skype hasn’t even closed yet. Anyway, let’s pray that this isn’t a repeat of the Great Skype Outage of December 2010, when the apocalypse appeared nigher than ever. Funnily e

Social networking giant Facebook and video chat leader Skype have announced a video sharing partnership enabling Facebook users to place Skype calls directly to any of their Facebook ‘Friends’ without having to leave the firm’s website. Facebook users do not need to have Skype already on their system, with installation of a Java plug-in the only requirement. The partnership builds on the existing alliance between the two companies, which enabled users to message Facebook friends or ‘Like’ t

Probably one of the least predicted developments of 2011 is Microsoft struggling back in the ball game. Microsoft acquired Skype and teamed up with Nokia. Both Skype and Nokia were struggling themselves, but with the marketing power of Microsoft it is hard to imagine these newlyweds are up for divorce soon. Like Microsoft is the biggest software company on our planet, Skype is in essence the biggest telephone operator on Planet Earth. The purchase of Skype sets Microsoft on pole position in the
Many users of the Skype messaging and VoIP service found themselves incommunicado today after the service went down for many users, with the outage in many cases causing the Skype software to crash.

Many users are continuing to complain of difficulties on Twitter, with occasional reports of problems even

(Reuters) - Skype founder Niklas Zennstrom said Microsoft could capitalize on its $8.5 billion acquisition of the Internet calling service by expanding into mobile and improving video call quality. "Skype's full potential hasn't been realized yet," said Zennstrom in an interview at the e-G8 forum in Paris, saying improvements in networks and devices such as smartphones meant the experience of using the service was still getting better. "I think that Microsoft has a huge opportunity to i

That was fast. A few days ago Skype went live across all Android phones. The biggest drawback most people saw was that you needed to be tethered to a WiFi connection to take advantage of Skype calls--severely limiting the 'mobile' aspect of the mobile VoIP offering. Looks like that's not so much an issue anymore. Hackers have succeeded in modifying the Skype app so that users can use the application to make calls over the 3G network. Hackers must have been working around the clock as Sky
Skype's VoIP calling software is now available for all Android devices, and the app has already been hacked to enable calling over 3G since it is only officially available in WiFi mode in the U.S. Just days after Skype launched Skype for Android to the Android Market for version 2.1 of the operating system, a hack was available for download. Users have to download the hacked .apk file after uninstalling the existing Skype app and then manually install the modified application. Previousl
