I'm not a savvy businessman, but I would think that diversifying a business can be too risky if you don't have the free capital to blow. I've personally seen a couple small companies strong core products sunk by risky, expensive, time consuming endeavors in new markets. In Ebay's case, you might argue that they could take the risk because of their size, but in a theoretical world where the economy keeps getting worse instead of rebounding, that $2.5 billion (approx., too lazy to scroll up and fact check) they paid for Skype could be the difference between them floating the operating costs of their core business for a not-insignificant amount of time or failing.
