I know. This either proves that I shouldn't believe everything I hear
in the news without checking it out, or that the mainstream media has no
idea what computer networking is, and therefore can't distinguish between
two companies as different as Cisco and 3Com (or at least the reporter who
said Cisco). Or both.

I still stand by my half tongue-in-cheek statement about Intel buying
Motorola. If Intel can develop (or buy) a modem on a chip to stick on
their motherboards, there won't be any need for modem companies.
