Juniper (and competition) FTW!

Light Reading - Optical Networking - Juniper Upgrades the Core - Telecom News Analysis:
"Juniper Networks Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) came out today saying it's upgrading its T series to 250 Gbit/s per slot.

That appears to be a pre-emptive strike against Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO), which is said to be readying an announcement involving per-slot capacity of 120 Gbit/s. Cisco's plan could involve an upgrade to the CRS-1, rather than a wholly new box. (See Rumor: Cisco Prepping CRS-1 Successor.)"

It's great to see that the carrier-class (not to mention edge) router wars are still alive and well!

Always Innovating: Introducing the Touch Book:
"Netbook reloaded
Until now, all netbooks were engineered the same way: Power-hungry Intel Atom, ugly case, and outdated 90's OS. Our goal: To achieve a breakthrough in both architecture and design. The result: a revolutionary device that works as both a netbook and a standalone tablet thanks to a detachable keyboard and a 3D touchscreen user interface."

One word: "want!"

Fix Congress First!

Fix Congress First!: "Yesterday, I called for a Constitutional amendment that would restore public trust in our government, and I asked everyone to join this effort through my organization, Change Congress. The response has been extraordinary -- but many people, for good reason, have questions about how an amendment could happen and about what that amendment should be."
