I told another friend, skype bought by eBay for 2.6 billion. My friend told me, skype is just VoIP and peer to peer technology, is nothing special.
I told the other friend, watch out for Alibaba.com because it has a lot of potential. Then he told me, Alibaba.com is just online Yellow Pages... Ya I think Google is just search engine, AdWords is just online advertisement.
