It's not that surprising, after seeing Cisco get nasty surprises in businesses both old (switches) and new (consumer). I should have seen this coming. (See Consumers Clobber Cisco and Is Cisco Spread Too Thinly?)
Taken from my Wednesday pre-coffee notes, here's a swipe at what Cisco should, might or won't cut.
