Pimp my crib, Cisco

By Jim Duffy on Fri, 09/05/08 - 6:16pm.

Proving that Cisco has a sense of humor it has posted up a really funny video that takes viewers on a trip down a tech memory lane. A bunch of actors in some ill-fitting wigs depict scenes of friends showing  off their latest cool gadgets, such as the Atari 800 and the Apple Newton ("Wouldn't this be a bomb if you could make phone calls out of this thing?"). The video is the first in a series of Digital Cribs, billed by Cisco as an up-close look at celebrity homes and their favorite gadgets. The series includes a look the technologies used by celebs including Meghan Asha (pictured), a roving tech correspondent, girl-about-town and soon-to-be star of her own reality TV show, Shane Battier, NBA basketball player, and Lincoln Shatz, a video artist.
