Google-Skype: planned engagement?

Today several blogs launched the rumour of a possible affair between Google and Skype. See here, here and here.

Well, i think the rumour could be true! Why? Not because there isn’t a hidden eBay emoticon in the Skype client but …

only because THE TIMING SEEMS TO BE NO COINCIDENCE: beginning of April! See my previous post “Where is the new CEO?” or directly this: eBay agreed that if, on or prior to March 31, 2008, eBay sells or transfers securities representing greater than 50% of the outstanding voting power of, or economic interest in, Skype (it) would pay up to an additional €138,411,300 … to the Earn Out Sellers.

But why did Skype-eBay appoint a new CEO some weeks ago?
