Yahoo! Eyes Skype Rival

"Yahoo! (YHOO:Nasdaq - commentary - research - Cramer's Take) is apparently planning to launch a Web-based phone service to compete with eBay's (EBAY:Nasdaq - commentary - research - Cramer's Take) Skype.
The new instant messaging client will allow users to make calls using conventional phones, blogger Om Malik wrote on GigaOm. He says the new offering may begin as early as next week. Yahoo!, which offers PC-to-PC calling through its instant messenger service, couldn't immediately be reached for comment. "
