Ebay Selling Skype to Google?

Google may be interested in buying Skype from Ebay. Ebay initially purchased Skype as an effort to allow buyers and sellers to hook up by voice, but things never really took off. A deal would make sense given that Skype never really produced for Ebay, and Google still wants to expand into the voice space. Skype would give Google another avenue. Not sure the selling price will come close to the $3.1 billion Ebay paid back in 2005.
