Notice Anything Missing?

by Akiva at Mystical Paths

I guess it shouldn't surprise me in this day and age to find Israel erased from the map. But, when going to try to find a fix for my wireless router, I was surprised to find Israel erased from the map of a major hi-tech firm with several offices and research centers IN ISRAEL...

(Go to Linksys.Com, click Downloads at the top right of the screen, then click Middle East.)

Sorry, no Israel in that world. Cisco Systems, the major maker of routers and Internet equipment (for corporations) in the world, maintains one of their major R&D centers in Netanya, Israel. Since 1997. Cisco is the parent corporation of Linksys, who makes home & small business networking equipment.

While I don't expect them to list an Israeli office if the Linksys division doesn't have one, I certainly expect that if there is room for Lebanon on their map, there is room for Israel (labeled or not).

At first I was just going to pass this by, but hey, how long does it take to stand up? I'm not sure who to contact, but their contact page is here.
