Set Top Box TakeOvers

Cisco is trying to buy Scientific America (but shareholders of SA are suing). And quietly, AT&T, MexTel, and Alcatel bought stakes in 2Wire. Om writes, "Alcatel, AT&T and Telmex have done what amounts to a quasi-takeover of 2Wire, a San Jose-based DSL modem maker with plans to deliver a triple set-top box." "At the heart of the deal was this interesting sweet little set-top box, which combines satellite TV, and DSL modem type functions along with ability to offer more media/services as part of the set-top box."
