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.
