Google to buy Skype?

The net has been thriving with rumors the last few days regarding Google's new attack: an instant messaging program titled Talk. The program is supposed to be released soon. Also, Google made a $3billion offer to buy Skype, but it was rejected from the owners (it will just take more money, that's what I think). If they merge Skype's capabilities with a good IM software (none uses Skype for chat so far), then we will have a new strong player in the game. Google has absorbed many good talents around the market and the results have started to show up. The browser will be coming up for sure.

edit: Oups, it's out already... . It's a cute start, but a it has some way to go before reaching the level of the other IM services.
