    For $7B? Why? Perplexed

    Microsoft already has Windows Live Messenger. That's a lot money to be paying for Skype's user base, especially since a lot of them might already be using Windows Live Messenger as well. 

    Why not buy Netflix and merge it with Zune Pass? Yes, it would have cost more, but I think that would be a far better acquisition.
