    Belkin Purchases Linksys from Cisco

    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    meh. Don't know a lot about Belkin, but I can only imagine Cisco has been dreaming of the day it gets to offload linksys from their product line.

    we use a ton of their fiber and patch cables at work, but I'm not familiar with their home consumer products.

    Why on earth did they acquire it then to begin with. I dont buy their stuff anymore anyway, but this just seems like a weird move to me. Belkin makes ok devices but there must be some sort of patents or something they want.

    They now own the home network market. That is what they wanted.
