Microsoft has bought into the VOIP market with the purchase of Teleo which already comes prepackaged with its own Microsoft certified "we're in beta" stamp, voice out with 2c calls to most places, and interactivity with the SIP network, the same service Google's promising to deliver with its "Talk" to anyone else as long as they've got gmail service.

Scobles refering to it, not suprisingly, as a Skype killer, probably the most overused phrase of the last 3 months (is there any VOIP service that isn't?)

Marketwatch has some more details but its apparently going to be merged into MSN Messenger. I can imagine it now, you've already got those stories on TV about kiddies running up their mobile bills, now they'll be able to run up a debt with Uncle Bill as well.
