Microsoft has sunk its razor-sharp fangs into everybody's favorite Internet-talking-thing, Skype. It cost the company $8.5 billion, which is silly money, and the company aims to bring the service to Xbox Live.

"Microsoft will continue to invest in and support Skype clients on non-Microsoft platforms."
