Cisco Not Kid-ding About Video, and Neither Is Microsoft
Microsoft has been making more and more noise about video conferencing. This
must not sit well with Cisco, which owns the network the same way Redmond owns
the desktop. On Oct. 20, Microsoft announced a research project for a cheap,
mobile video conferencing device
that will be out in a year or less.
Days later, Cisco announced a tool aimed at making
video conferences feel more like the real thing
, instead of the jerky, latency-laden
messes they are today (don't video conferences remind you of those annoying
dance club strobe lights?).
I don't care who wins this war. I just want this stuff to look good so I can
stop flying around the country just to put a face to a voice.
