Comment: Why did they ditch the TV? (Score 5, Insightful) 244 244

Because they have half a clue ...

Apple doesn't enter a market unless they see the ability to innovate and change it. They aren't always first movers, but they DO bring innovation and of course profits to any segment they enter.

The magic is in saying "NO" to doing things that don't make sense... entering a crowded, unimaginative, razor-thin margin, mature TV market doesn't make sense for Apple. That's why they said no.... No more, no less.

You are so wrong it isn't even funny.

We're running app stacks at full line rate on 40GbE using today's hardware. A dual-socket sandy bridge server (I.e. HP DL380) has no problem driving that kind of bandwidth. Look up Intel DPDK or 6Windgate if you want to learn a thing or two.

It's real, it works, and we're getting ready to start 100GbE testing.

You can do this in a number of ways. IBM chose to do all of them. Why do you find that funny? -- D. Taylor, Computer Science 350
