    Thought this the best place for maximum exposure. Please move it if you feel it should be in another part of the forum.

    Just thought i'd give you a heads up. Seems the popular Sygate Online scanner is no more. Symantec have pulled the plug and replaced it with their own unpopular scanner. Another useful tool bites the dust!!!

    I don't like the sight of that. I prefer it if Symantec never bought them over in the first place.

    What's with all the big companies buying over smaller firms? For their own benefit only it seems? I don't see how former users of Sygate's products benefit in any way at all, and I don't see why they should be happy over this acquisition ( apologies for spell. mis.) of Sygate.

    Obviously, it's just pure money talk. :cautious:

    Well i guess when you buy out popular companies you effectively reduce the competition and can bait the loyal followers into switchiing to your own product.
