Report: Facebook in talks to buy Skype
Skype and Facebook have sat down for a chit-chat. The content of those talks remains unclear, but sources say an acquisition could be in the works.

Another option reportedly being weighed by the two tech companies is a joint venture, an option also possible between Skype and Google.
