Tuesday, 12 January 2021 17:29

Extreme Networks missed the deadline to expunge Adobe Flash from its management tools and is advising users they’ll therefore need to fiddle with their PC clocks to manage their networks.

“Due to a last minute change in 3rd party licensing we have been tasked to update WiNG Manager to meet new enforcements related to Flash,” says an Extreme Networks support article updated on January 12, 2021.

Saturday, 09 January 2021 01:15

The 2025 deadline to deliver UK-wide gigabit broadband is "unreachable", according to a damning report from Parliament's spending watchdog.

Improving Broadband , published by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), identifies several flaws in the strategy taken by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), particularly when it comes to the planned rollout.

It attributes this to the fact that responsibility for these legislative hurdles belongs to other

Faced with the hideous prospect of jackbooted EU
