While the rest of Silicon Valley buzzes about Facebook, Twitter, and tablet computers, networking-gear maker Cisco (CSCO) is betting big on Internet video. Cisco shook up the corporate teleconferencing market a few years ago with its TelePresence technology an Internet-based, high-def videoconferencing service and in October announced a "lite" version of the service MOREOct 27, 2010 3:00 AM ET

I'm blacked out. Again. Earlier this spring, I subscribed to MLB.TV, Major League Baseball's online video service, and was told I'd have access to every regular season game live or on demand, where available, on the device of my choice. For $119 that seemed like a fair deal, MOREAug 12, 2010 1:19 PM ET
The video chat service is mostly free, for now. But if Skype just tiptoes into the advertising business, its returns could be massive.
Apart from Google (GOOG), Skype may be the largest consumer site on the web without a banner ad. So when the company filed its prospectus with the SEC Monday in preparation for an initial public offering, I noted with interest that advertising was called out as one of MOREJessi Hempel, writer - Aug 11, 2010 3:00 AM ET
An Android blog today practically did a review of the soon-to-be-released Motorola Droid 2.
AndroidandMe.com didn't leave much to the imagination in this "pre-review" of the new Motorola Droid 2, which is set to be announced on Wednesday and scheduled for release next month.
The original Droid and its successor are very similar in appearance, with a new larger keyboard being the major difference from the outside. The original Droid is black MORESeth Weintraub - Jun 21, 2010 5:43 AM ET
Today, YouTube revamped its video editing page to make it easier to edit YouTube videos.
As first spotted by the unofficial Google Operating System Blog, YouTube today sports a whole new Cloud video editing interface.
Check it out here.
YouTube had previously tried a Flash-based editing system a few years ago called 'Remixer' which wasn't very reliable and therefore unpopular.
'Editor' isn't based in Flash (though the output will be played in Flash if MORESeth Weintraub - Jun 16, 2010 10:41 AM ET

Tony Bates isn't just an online video fanatic when he's on the clock. The Cisco (CSCO) executive also served on the board of YouTube in his spare time, before Google (GOOG) bought it in 2006. When I sat down with Bates in his office recently, the veteran of Cisco's service provider and enterprise units talked about how he ended up advising YouTube and why he believes video is the next MOREJon Fortt - Jan 19, 2010 7:00 AM ET
Cisco has its swagger back.
When the networking provider hosted Wall Street analysts at its San Jose headquarters Tuesday for its annual update on the state of the business, the most striking thing was the full-scale return of confidence. After a year in which most of tech has struggled to regain its footing in a global financial crisis, CEO John Chambers and his lieutenants told the financial community that they're poised MOREJon Fortt - Dec 9, 2009 11:52 AM ET
On the face of it, Cisco's bid to purchase Norwegian videoconferencing rival Tandberg for $2.98 billion looks like a crushing victory for Cisco. After all, CEO John Chambers has been a tireless advocate for Cisco's version of the technology, using it to slash his travel budget and pitch a new way to work – and he's nabbing Tandberg for a mere 11% premium over Wednesday closing stock price. (Tandberg trades MOREJon Fortt - Oct 1, 2009 1:42 PM ET
