Jean-Louis Gassée on Microsoft’s Skype acquisition:

In just the past 12 months, Microsoft has lost $2.5B in its Online business. They spend $2 to make $1 in revenue. Buying and “integrating” Skype will make the picture even redder.

and later:

Microsoft’s ability to successfully charge for a formerly free product is lacking.

I also love the Elop quips.
