  1. Guys,

    You say that Cisco just sold Skype? I'm pretty sure that Skype was just sold by E-Bay, not Cisco. In fact, I seriously doubt that Cisco ever owned Skype. You might want to check that.


  2. Chris-

    I don't believe we said Cisco ever owned Skype. We said they were sold off by eBay earlier this year. The only tie to Cisco is the addition of Tony Bates as Skype's new CEO. Mr. Bates comes from Cisco. If we confused you, we apologize.

    Thanks for the feedback and for being a listener of the podcast!

  3. Gentlemen,

    I have re-listened to that section of the show and now I understand. What happened was during the word "ebay" more than one of you were talking at the same time, so I didn't hear it. I (incorrectly) thought that you were saying Cisco once owned Skype. Next time, pass the conch around! 🙂

    Love the show, keep up the great work!
