Fellow blogger Andy strongly suspects that sometime late this evening, we'll finally understand what eBay's plans are for their $2.6 billion acquisition.

Fellow blogger Andy strongly suspects that sometime late this evening, we'll finally understand what eBay's plans are for their $2.6 billion acquisition. That'd be Skype.

Tonight would be as good a night as any. At 6 p.m. Pacific, eBay CEO Meg Whitman will keynote the EBay Developers Conference in LV. Lots of Skype folks are hanging around, I'm told.

If we are right and the wraps are taken off tonight, look for a package of eBay-Skype stories by tomorrow morning. I already have them outlined in my head. All I need is the specifics- which may come tonight.
