Whats the difference between kbps and kBps ? A lot.
Following the HP Network Tech Day here are my thoughts on what HP needs to do to be successful – from an engineers perspective.
So Cisco “announced” the Cius Android tablet. It’s not innovation. It’s just a cheap knockoff that’s easy to do.
So a while back, Cisco, VMWare and EMC announced that they are forming a partnership to co-operatively sell and support products in a joint venture named Acadia. Selected engineers and sales grunts, USD$200 million bucks and “no large customer left untouched” door to door marketing campaign. Is there anything to it ?
I haven’t got any idea what Brocade is going to do next. Why would I buy their products when I can’t see the future ?
When explaining outage risks in a change review, I often need to grit my teeth and say quietly to myself…..
Unlimited voice/text/data plans in the UK signal the end of Legacy and IP Telephony market as we know it.
Some observations on what the changes to the CCNP and CCIE programs tell us about Cisco intentions for their certification programs.
Ivan Pepelnjak has good rant about people stealing books.
Some people have pointed out that I have been Cisco bashing lately. Let’s check if it’s just me.
I am often asked to attend parties with my co-workers for people who are leaving, Christmas or team parties. Then I realised how little it really mattered and got on with my life.
A bunch of CEO’s promising to play ‘nice’ with each others toys is not a convincing marketing exercise. Cisco and EMC/VMware need to merge to get big enough to compete with HP / IBM.

Google’s ChromeOS means a return to standards based networking, and reducing the Microsoft monopoly. Plus cheap netbooks. A quick take on what I’m thinking.
I saw Cisco 3660 CCIE study program in an online store today. It struck me as poor value for money. Here’s why…
Is Cisco buying up Cloud Computing software ?
Everyday brings news of another failure of a “Cloud Computing” service. It won’t take much in the current economic climate for the market to take a “Vista view” and not buy it.
I once had to contact an outsourced Help Desk on an urgent matter. I rang the Help Desk and logged my call with the operator. I confirmed that there was a four hour response. Yeah, right, it took 12 hours to fix it.
Outsourcing is under threat when one of the big five Indian outsourcing companies is a fraud. And if you think that only the CEO is involved (as he claims) then I have a bridge to sell you. UPDATE: The CFO has gone missing as well as the CEO.
Several pieces have been posted about Cisco announcing a major move into the consumer electronics space. This has me me thinking that Cisco is no longer serious about Enterprise or Service Provider……
