A week of rumours

To add to the rumour we reported last week that DT was considering buying EDS, other 'rumours' circulated that News Corp was to buy LinkedIN and Google was to buy Skype from ebay. Both of these latter rumours sound credible to me. Indeed, Reid Hoffman, who was visiting the UK last week gaining significant publicity for LinkedIN, made comments to TechCrunch which gave credibility to the story.
As Hoffman is also a shareholder in Facebook, my personal hope had been that these two would come together to produce the Business/Social Networking tool I have long yearned. I guess that New Corp might well do the same with MySpace.
