Short Takes: Would You Like Skype With That?

The scenario goes likes this: Microsoft buys Skype and becomes a major shareholder in Facebook, Google tries gazzump Facebook by announcing the launch of Google+ which has integrated video chat, Facebook counters by announcing that it will be incorporating Skype video chat.

Not that this pairing should surprise folks as Facebook and Skype already share some of the same instant messaging tools.

Where Google+ still has the edge is its ability for group video chat whereas Facebook's video service will only be able to connect two users face-to-face.

The biggest winner out of all of this would appear to be Microsoft.
