Just under two weeks ago, Skype announced plans to buy Qik, which is a company that provides mobile-phone software for recording, storing, and sharing videos. Well, Skype announced today that the purchase is now complete. Skype bought Qik in order to provide better service in the mobile-department. They now have Qik's capabilities and researchers under their name. Qik also has a special video-streaming optimizer that optimizes video over wireless-networks. With the addition of Skype, this optimizer will help Skype be more efficient with its services while operating over 3g and 3g networks.
