the SKYPE pad! ~ eBay Inc. (Public, NASDAQ:EBAY)

when APPLE (AAPL) first announced the iPad, we were all like (tween accent) "WTF!?! ... it can't even make phone calls!?!" ... solution = SKYPE!

the iPad + SKYPE = SkyPhone!

NEXT STEP: the iPad with front facing camera and Skype face-to-face video chat, wow.

EBAY: owns eBAY, PayPal, and 30% of SKYPE (the IPO set for 'sometime' in 2010)

p.s. Moshi Moshi (click here)


EBAY reports WED after the close ... let's look for the SELL OFF to continue Monday, then we'll find our opportunity to get LONG via front month calls.

Options Lovers: try the May $27 CALLS ... $0.88 - 0.31 (-26.05%) ... "if" the SELLOFF is larger than expected, move down to the $26s.

this EBAY play on SKYPE is a bit of a stretch since EBAY sold most of their interest in skype, i think i just like the whole face to face phone chat on the ipad thought.
