AVALIAÇÃO DO 8º ANO (TESTE) Texto 1: Microsoft is buying Skype One is the giant business, whose software powers more than 90% of the world's computers. The other is the firm, which has revolutionised the way many communicate. Now Skype is being swallowed up by Microsoft. It's just eight years since Skype started helping people to make calls over the internet for nothing, and this is the third time it's been bought and sold. Microsoft has been struggling to prove it can compete with the likes of Google and Apple. Now as it tries to make an impact on the mobile-phone world, it wants Skype to help it become a bigger force. Skype is now used by 170 million people around the world (each month), not just on their computers, but on the move – on their mobile phones and even on their tablet devices. Microsoft wants to tap in to this connected community, but it's paying a huge price for a business that isn't even profitable. Rory Cellan-Jones, BBC News.
