    The iPhone Skype app works flawlessly on the iPad - video transmission too, if you have the iPad2.

    It does.

    It'd just be nice to be proper ipad2 app instead of a x2 app.

    Yes, I have been using the iPhone version of Skype on my iPad2 and it is acceptable at 2x view but was hoping for a dedicated iPad app for even better video. On the Skype forum, they said an iPad app was in the works but I'll bet that has been shelved now. Too bad!

    I think you are reading too much into corporate school yard rivalries.

    Paying $8.5 Billion, I would think that microsoft is going to want to take advantage of every revenue stream they can get off of skype. Microsoft did not block Office from being available on Apple operating systems and I'm sure they did not make the liscencing fees cheap, so I see no reason to just assume that Gates is going to be blowing any rasberries in the direction of Job's iPads. Rather, I'll bet they are looking at every opportunity to piggyback and draw off revenue, like with MS Office.

    Why is everyone so negative? Why shouldn't ms make an apple app? They're certainly talking about an Office suite so I've heard.

    Watch the Linux version of Skype go bye-bye soon.

    Whether they make a good app or not isn't really the issue, it's that the service itself is going to undergo major cultural changes and become less than pleasurable.

    Expect it to be merged with MSN Messenger in some way eventually; Mac people know what a POS that client is. Luckily there's Adium.
