eBay To Unload StumbleUpon & Skype?

eBay, Owner of StumbleUpon, a DIGG competitor that highlights "things on the internet" ... is going up for sale according to BloggingStocks.

I've never used StumbleUpon and since Digg stopped making posting to a blog available, I've visited it less and less. I have started to use Yahoo! Buzz a bit more - another competitor.

The story also mentions that ebay owned VOIP service Skype may also be getting primed for sale as well.

Shedding both would be a great idea - eBay needs to focus on auctions and not these distractions.

[UPDATE] eBay has confirmed that they plan to spin off Skype with an IPO later this year.

I never cared for Stumble, I found it a waste of time. But since you mentioned it, I must check out Yahoo Buzz.
