Skype links to Lync, for some serious Microsoft synergy

Brian Heater

As predicted, Microsoft is taking advantage of a little cross-platform action, connecting up Skype with its business-minded communication service, Lync. The connection brings together "the enterprise richness of Lync and the global reach of Skype," according to the company, letting users sign into Skype with their Microsoft account on Windows or Mac or merge their contact lists together on the popular VoIP service. At present, you can use instant messaging or audio calling, with more features -- including video calling -- coming later.
