Skype in merger talks with Yahoo? - Engadget - www.engadget.com: "It's sort of early in the game on this, but word on the street is that Skype and Yahoo are in 'close contact,' as in, snuggly enough to talk about a possible buyout. It makes sense from the standpoint that Yahoo already wants to add voice to their Yahoo! Messenger platform, and Skype would be an attractive acquisition in terms of merging IM with VoIP."
