Wednesday, June 15, 2005 - Yahoo Buys Firm That Offers Calls From PC to Phone - Yahoo Buys Firm That Offers Calls From PC to Phone: "Yahoo Inc. said it acquired Internet telephony company Dialpad Communications Inc., in a move that will allow it to offer calling between computers and standard telephones.
Terms of the deal weren't disclosed. Closely held Dialpad, of Milpitas, Calif., has about 40 employees. It lets consumers make voice calls from their PCs that are routed over the Internet to the conventional telephone network, with unlimited calls within the U.S. and Canada currently costing $11.99 a month. A Yahoo spokeswoman declined to say whether Yahoo, of Sunnyvale, Calif., would change Dialpad's fees."

Okay so maybe not Skype (which probably has a self-estimated value of approximately $infinity at this point)...
