  • Born: Broadcom botches the Symantec migration

    So Broadcom bought Symantec for $ 10 billion. Symantec becomes NortonLifeLock, another excellent example of wasted name recognition.

    As part of the transition, today, Broadcom abruptly cut off all links to the old Symantec site. People, uh, aren’t happy. Apparently they’re even having trouble buying new licenses for the old Symantec software.

    Günter Born has a rundown, which relies heavily on Catalin Cimpanu’s reporting. You’d think with a $10 billion budget they’d do a bit better.
