Editor's Note
It certainly appears to have been a busy time for the European
Commission dealing with the AOL and Time Warner merger, one
minute it was all go and the next the whole idea had been blocked.
They finally reached a decision last week. Broadband is becoming
an increasingly common term, I am surprised to hear broadband
mentioned as often and easily as the internet is used nowadays,
undoubtedly this technology is here to stay.

This newsletter covers a range of stories for the IT Trainer from
general training issues through to latest software/hardware
releases from a variety of organisations to keep you informed of
as many IT issues of relevance that can be found.
