Playtech has signed a “major” deal that will see it play a role in the Netherlands’ soon-to-be-launched online gambling market.

The software giant is to expand its work with Dutch state-owned Holland Casino, which has the legal monopoly on the country’s physical gambling space and is set to launch online with betting and gaming products in October. 

The FTSE 250 firm, founded by Israeli tech and property billionaire Teddy Sagi back in 1999, said it has “expanded long-term strategic software and services agreement with Holland Casino” and that the move is “a significant strategic step for Playtech and builds on its track record of developing newly regulated online markets”. 

As part of the deal, Playtech will build a Live Casino facility next to Holland Casino’s existing locations.

Basecamp Software Company Bans Political Talk, Committees at Work

Chicago-based software company Basecamp is banning political talk from company accounts and committees at work as part of a new rollout of changes.

“Today’s social and political waters are especially choppy. Sensitivities are at 11, and every discussion remotely related to politics, advocacy, or society at large quickly spins away from pleasant. You shouldn’t have to wonder if staying out of it means you’re complicit, or wading into it means you’re a target. These are difficult enough waters to navigate in life, but significantly more so at work,” Basecamp CEO and co-founder Jason Fried wrote Monday in a company blog post.

“It’s become too much. It’s a major distraction. It saps our energy, and redirects our dialog towards dark places. It’s not healthy, it hasn’t served us well,” he added.

Effective immediately, employees will be banned from societal and political discussions on the company account, as well as from participating

Hackers and antivirus vendors are engaged in an endless cyclical battle. Hackers continually create new viruses and other ways to infect your computer or attack you online to steal your data, money, or identity. In turn, antivirus vendors create solutions to detect these threats and keep them from harming you.

Being smart about how you use email, what links you click on, websites you browse, and files you download is your first line of defense. But antivirus software can supplement these efforts, providing professional security monitoring to keep your electronic devices and information safe.

Lessons Learned About Remote Work, One Year In After The Great Dispersal

March 2020 may seem like decades ago, but we are coming on the 12th month since the great corporate dispersal brought on by the Covid-19 crisis. That’s when every single office worksite broke up into a hundred smaller worksites ensconced within employees’ home offices, kitchen tables, spare bedrooms, or corners of bedrooms.

How goes this great Work-from-Anywhere experiment? So far, so good, and a lot of lessons have been learned. First, that remote work is sustainable, and doesn’t affect productivity. Second, the experiment has been uneven, mainly enabling the professional and managerial class to work from the comfort of their homes, while frontline workers have had to stick it out in the public space. Third, the tools and technologies available have proven themselves in stressful situations. Finally, even for professional, managerial and office workers, there’s still always going to
