On Headlines – Cisco Declines, Arista Gains

The following headline from Network Computing is accurate but misleading:

“Ethernet Switch Market: Cisco Declines, Arista Gains”

From just the headline one can assume Arista is getting close to Cisco Market share and about to gain the lead, but reading the article reveals more information.

Cisco is indeed declining, Market share dropped to 55.1% from 59%. This goes inline with global trend of having an option and Open Ethernet.

While Arista is gaining, 5.1% from 3.9%  . An impressive gain, but no where near Cisco.

A more important detail and maybe a catchier headline would have been Huawei. 6.3% from 3.9%.   Yes, Huawei surpassed Arista in Market share, yet the headline discusses Arista.

Not Fake news, but interesting interpretation.

Laptop bag

Finished making a new bag, this time a laptop bag.

Realized that my bag is heavy and if I could split the weight it would be much easier (although more cumbersome) and will also allow me to use my handmade leather bag.

Very proud of this one, as made the handles by myself and designed it from scratch.

Actually, design has changed in the middle as I decided to add a zipper, which destroyed the intended curves I planned, but overall happy with the results

 

New Leather

Bought a large piece of Crocodile pattern embossed leather at Tokyu Hands.

Have plans for a Laptop carry bag, but still thinking on new products.
As I am too busy, I expect it to take a while till I can complete this one.
