Re: Merger Mania (was: Modem Wars)

Anyone have an opinion on the Cisco takeover of USR, announced today? 
There was a profile of Cisco in this month's WIRED detailing how its rapid
growth has come more from acquisitions than internal product development.
It basically pays for its victims with cash flow from sales, but top-line 
growth is leveling off due to market maturity and increased competition.

So will 3Com and Ascend team up to buy Motorola now? Or will Intel buy
Motorola? (They already own parts of Xircom, Phoenix Tech. SystemSoft,
CyberCash, etc.) Will Bill Gates buy Cisco?  :)
