Skype starts hiring from Microsoft and SkypeMobile 

Skype starts hiring from Mircosoft or is this the first mole for a potential takeover of Skype by Microsoft? ;-)

Om Malik and also Stuart note that Lenn Pryor, the Channel 9 founder, is leaving Microsoft and joining Skype.

Other news from Skype come from the VON Canada via MobileMag:

At the Voice On the Net (VON) conference in Toronto, Skype Technologies co-founder and CEO Niklas Zennstrom reported that a mobile version of Skype will be available this year.

“We will encourage hardware manufacturers to deploy Skype on their devices.” said Zennstrom. SkypeMobile for mobile devices (our unofficial name for the new Skype) will be targeted to hardware manufacturers for integration into new dual-mode (GPRS + WiFi) mobile devices once made available to carriers. Our guess is that whichever manufacturer will adopt Skype first is the platform SkypeMobile will be released for.
