[News Story] - Skype to test advertising

Hi All
Just seen this:
[quote="Skype to test advertising"]
From innovation to desperation?
If you’re one of the millions of people who have learned to love unreliable service and uncertain call quality, Skype has good news: its intention to introduce advertisements to inflate its value ahead of the IPO won't change a thing.
Announcing its advertising plans, the "hugely popular free Internet communications service" [sic] said advertisements will only be inflicted on users in the UK, US and Germany at this stage.
Skype's blog post faithfully promises users that "the ads won’t interrupt your Skype experience" (which can be more reliably left to its servers anyhow). Banner ads will instead be displayed in the home tab of future Windows clients.
