Skype: A coming of age story

Like all of us, Skype began as a mere twinkle in the eye of its creators. In less than ten years, it had matured into a beautiful adult. Skype has made its Swedish, Danish and Estonian parents proud, with its latest life accomplishment -- you guessed it -- being sold for $8.5 billi to Microsoft.

But, as the below infographic shows, Skype wasn't always so lovable. It wasn't until Skype's older brother, Kazaa (you remember it, right?) went to prison that Skype came to exist in the first place.
