... That Skype have the cheek to show up this ad whilst I'm browsing the PlayBook section of CrackBerry. Fair enough if they don't bring their app to PlayBook, it's their decision, but do they have to rub it in our faces like this?
"You can take me, but spare my PlayBook!"

Actually, there was just some tweets going around a couple weeks ago that there was guy or two from Skype at the recent DevCon conference, learning about PB and BB10 development. No promises were made, for sure, but it sounded like an encouraging sign to me..

You guys know that it isn't Skype themselves who put the ad there, right? More than likely, the ad got served up by AdChoices since there have been several Skype threads here (of course, lamenting the fact we don't have it).
Skype had nothing to do with this one other than having an ad present that AdChoices could serve to sites that talk about the program.

what a fail thread.July 28, 2015.
Her weary hours and days of unrest
Her troubled nights are past
In my aching heart I know
Mom has found peace at last
Love you and miss you.
Take care mom. We will see one another someday.

Like devhux said, it's not Skype directly. They sign up with ad services companies and those companies place the ads on websites that also use their services.
Here's the thing, it's usually done by keyword, so if people would shut up about Skype around here, we probably wouldn't see the ads..."Distrust and caution are the parents of security." -Benjamin Franklin

Ah, not to worry. Keep searching the forums and a *particular* poster says he/she has an insider in RIM who, in turn, claims skype is coming, just waiting for bb10 and some integration issues.
Please tell me you believe it. I need to sell a bridge.============================
Please, God, for another day grant me
the wisdom to know the difference.
