Cisco Launching a Car?
That is the hypothesis of a”reporter” from TechEdge Weekly who was wandering our campus recently. He and his editor were at Cisco headquarters recently asking questions of some of our most senior executives -even John Chambers. He crossed my path in an elevator, and I don’t think he gleaned much-he was a bit”tied up” and distracted. The reporter also apparently ran into John Earnhardt, who writes for our main Platform blog, who was out and about this weekend in Menlo Park (likely buying a train or firetruck toy-) Firetrucks, Trains and Video – The PlatformI can’t comment on Ira’s hypothesis that Cisco is getting into the car business. If true, it would be a pretty dramatic expansion of our business model. While I like to think that I usually have a heads up on our big announcements and know of one major announcement on the 11th, I have to admit that this time though I am scratching my head on the car idea.A couple of questions that I’m curious about if true:
- What’s the mileage?
- Do we get a good employee discount?
- Does it have Corinthian leather?
Here are some clips of our reporter’s meetings with our VP of PR, Terry Anderson, and our CEO, John Chambers. Though apparently, the reporter needs to do a bit more background research on our Company’s leadership, I have to admit that I am intrigued to see what turns up in part 2-. In the meantime, I’ll likely be peppering his blog with a few questions-.
