Post Cisco backpedals after uproar, drops cloud from default router setting

Cisco

Instead, you had to sign up for Cisco's cloud service, roll back your firmware, or just forget about using advanced router management features.

Cisco has backpedaled tonight, with a blog post saying the service'Cisco Connect Cloud'will no longer be the default management tool.
