Duke University has now shifted the blame from the iPhone to Cisco, for causing the reported wireless outage. Duke 's chief information officer, Tracey Futhey, detailed; "Cisco worked closely with Duke and Apple to identify the source of this problem, which was caused by a Cisco-based network issue."

Though the specifics of the trouble were not given, it seems to be resolved. Futhey added; "Cisco has provided a fix that has been applied to Duke's network and there have been no recurrences of the problem since."


As we well know, Apple hasn't always seen eye to eye with Cisco, given their 'we'll use the iPhone badge anyway' attitude. This revelation gives the boys in Cupertino something to snigger about - damn they're smug. Oh and Mark adds, "Duke sucks." [Computerworld]
