NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The common theme among growing technology companies such as Apple (AAPL - Get Report) and Google (GOOG - Get Report) is precisely that -- they are growing. However with Wall Street's insatiable appetite for growth, any success demonstrated by these companies only perpetuates higher growth expectations, regardless of how ridiculous the expectations become. It's a never-ending cycle.Two companies that have been cast by the wayside due to lack of growth appeal are software giant Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report) and the networking equipment maker Cisco (CSCO - Get Report). I have begun to wonder whether should we still categorize them as "technology companies" because it has become evident that Wall Street doesn't.
