Well, in a way it would save them millions in future expenditures on them paying to build out the service. It would make surfing the web faster and therefore I believe enhance their business as people could do more searching in less time. If the final goal is to have interent anywhere at any time on a myriad of devices all connected to the net then I see this as a Boom to Google. Thank you Cisco!
What Is Cisco Announcing This Morning To "Forever Change the Internet"? A Foursquare-Enabled Jet Pack?
Kara Swisher, On Tuesday March 9, 2010, 8:15 am Bright and early this morning at 8 am PT, BoomTown will be jacked into the matrix for an invitation-only media and analyst briefing to hear exactly what the heck Cisco (CSCO) has been yammering on about of late. Last month, the networking giant said in a mysterioso email that it would be making “a significant announcement that will forever change the Internet and its impact on consumers, businesses and governments.”
I find it hard to imagine no impact. On a slow news day, such as today, Cisco's announcement could drive the market, depending upon the release this could certainly have an impact on Google. Any other inputs?
