KiSS'd by Cisco

Tom picked up on this thread from CNET. It looks like Cisco is still hot on the acquisition trail, today they announced their Linksys division has aquired Kiss Technology of Denmark. Kiss manufacturers DVD players and Digital Video Recorders or DVRs, a consumer electronics (CE) company. This will be the first CE company Cisco has aquired, at $61M.

What this might mean for Linksys and Cisco is huge. Combine DVRs, VoIP, Video and wireless Internet and you have the makings of one hell of a Set-top box. I think we are going to see some really exciting stuff come out of Cisco in the next 5 years.
