What's in a name?
PETA can blame the Dutch, Fishkil, vis kill, fish creek.
Perhaps Fishkill though the original name Tioranda too pretentious.

"Sir Alan Duncan told Parliament this afternoon that the British government is "increasingly concerned" about Assange's health." - concerned that he is still breathing, a step they seek to resolve forthwith.
What's sad is that not of this kind of thing ever makes pop-media as it does not fit their narrative on gun-control.
A lot of this is caused by constant hazing and because localities want to keep the crime rate down.
If you are different in a US high school you get hazed.
Before social media it ended when you went home but since US students are stuck to their mobes, and/or SnapTweetingFacebooking there is constant hazing on already stressed kids.
It has also been shown that in at least 2 cases the FBI was notified about a possible shooter and ignored it (like 9/11) and local authorities were trying to get the arrest record down and told police to ignore calls about a potential shooter.
American Pai outsourced a flood campaign.
She added that rejections “send a damaging message that the UK is not open to the ‘brightest and best’ across the world”
Ms. Main must have copy-pasta this from the guidebook on how to trash your domestic workforce.
This argument is rather smooth and it has been shown again and again the brightest and best stay home and answer calls from those that get these visas about how to do their job.
"These figures show the scale of the problem and the urgency to find a solution," said CaSE executive director Sarah Main.
"Across the country, businesses and public services are being blocked at the last hurdle from recruiting the people they need... This leaves employers frustrated and the public poorly served."
One wonders how many visa applicants are qualified for Ms. Main's position?
Atari was quite capable of its own flann in its heyday.
Many of the games for the console would never live up to what was promised on the can.
Atari was also capable of its own corporate demise by missing the x86 trend and milking punters and consoles. It did not need Nintendo's help either. Nintendo used its influence with retailers and games publishers to prevent them from selling Atari's kit. If you published for Atari you could not publish for Nintendo.
Without the Russian source where will Spacex get all of its working rockets from?
I think a better car analogy would be if a car manufacturer released a car with a power window that would not go up thus allowing world+dog in.
It's no surprise "Pretty Boy Floyd" stumped for this burning bag of crypto-crap.
His whole career has been a fraud.
Ever since the Neo cons hijacked the company in the 90's IBM has been in a death spiral.
This is just more outsourcing, laying off anyone who still knows anything about the product and selling a license to some overseas firm.
Perchance Atari could just buy a controller:
Perhaps M$ will grow up and support Oauth2 in their Mac and Pee Cee versions?
One can only hope...
For any company to open shop in the PRC a partnership has to be made with a local Chinese firm. The new company must also have a CPC member on its board. It is also common knowledge that if the CPC or the PLA are interested in something you are manufacturing in the PRC then you best be quick about giving them a peek otherwise your cheap exploitable labor goes on strike, you suddenly have IE problems and your factory burns down. The PRC is also helping students get into and pay for universities in the West as these are hotbeds of innovation thanks to cheapskate Western corporations that want to offload R+D costs while getting a big fat tax break and a gym or library named after the CEO.
Only a naive Register reporter and those that are paid to think like him would believe that all of this has nothing to do with technology advances in the PRC. Sure, the Chinese are historically masterful engineers but why work for it when it is far easier to steal it.
One can't help but think that this is being done because large investors, banks, etc. all know that a bailout will be forthcoming if hotair tech corps like ML fail.
For its part if ML is smart, or at least buys some brains, they will buy out a startup that actually knows what they are doing.
With only 19 billion dollars from the US taxpayer NASA could not kill this quick enough to free up the budget so they could chuck more money at SPACEX so they could pay out bonuses and with what was leftover buy some Russian rockets and hire the India's space agency to put stuff in orbit..
The FCC has been hollowed out and turned into a mouthpiece for the carriers.
It is not going to change until they kick out or arrest that corrupt sell out Ajit Pai.
H1B are not immigrants.
They are temporary workers usually with made up credentials willing to work for less playing at doing a similar job. Execs like them as they help meet goals for fat bonuses.
This is the kind of thing that makes the US lags behind Europe, Asia and most third world nations in broadband quality and speed.
Apple product high cost is just a bit of marketing.
The expense is meant to imply exclusivity.
The extra dosh doesn't hurt either.
Ahh, sugar is expensive, so perhaps someone wants a bonus and needs to meet a goal?
They did the same thing to Coca-Cola in the states and it was never the same.
The closest you can get to "the real thing" is to either get it from Mexico or wait for the Passover formula.
There was a lot of illegal coercion by Silicon Vallay threating employees if they voted for Trump. Trump had threatened to turn off the tap on their supply of cheap, exploitable labor plumbed through the various US visa programs.
For example this from Bryan Llenas :
The CEO of Grubhub, an online food delivery service, sent a company wide email Wednesday suggesting employees who agree with President-elect Donald Trump’s behaviors and his campaign rhetoric should resign.
“If you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here,” wrote Matt Maloney, Co-Founder of Grubhub. “We do not tolerate hateful attitudes on our team."
It is a hazard of BPO.
The identity theft is rampant with call center workers thinking Limey is rich and so a little credit card fraud won't hurt them. There are whole call centers setup to scam westerners.
It will only stop when it is made to hurt, something like the government in the offending area and the corporation that hired the service being made to pay a fine plus restitution.
M$ frustrated developers and customers with constant incompatible software upgrades on mobile. So devs just wrote for the more profitable Apple and Google platforms and because the apps were there those platforms got the customers.
Corporations pay a price for production in the PRC. Huawei products are probably better as they benefit from surreptitious examination of Apple and others engineering. The low cost iPhone floppiness may have been more about too much feature chop by Apple and availability than fashion. Huawei has one of the best smartwatches with perhaps Apple and Samsung variants as its only competition.
What is sad is that you believe that. If nothing was out of the ordinary in the way Hillary was using out of band communication even for classified information why did she feel the need to lie about it? First there was no mail server, then there was but it was decommissioned and erased, then it was in use but no classified stuff so on a so forth.
Corporations as solid as M$ have gotten away with vaporware for years. Many computing gadgets and software fail to do what it says on the can.
The problem has been exasperated with the demonstration by the banking industry of how uncomfortable authorities are to collar well-to-do criminals.
The prime motivation for the outsourcing was so they could skirt FOA. At least it is the main reason they are doing this in the States.
Personally, I couldn't care less...
I'll probably watch the first episode and if she's good continue and if not chock it up to PC.
In the fluff they could have run a parallel Rx. Who as a women in the form of his clone in "The Rebel Flesh".
M$ has been hungrily eyeing the size 10s Apple has been giving its fanbois for new Macs and did not want any Microsofties to miss out on the experience.
Should it not be that Google nee, Alphabet is required, by as some law to remove these records from search rather then reliance on Google's benevolence?
It should be obvious by now that Ajit Pai has to go if not face charges for fraud. He is corrupt and is basically a mouth piece for Big Comm. This has been a trend i nthe US for some time recalling how ICANN ('t) turned into a insiders club for that part of the industry.
It is really too bad that Brexit is going to split Ireland even more.
Why can't Blighty give up NI?
Citizen 4 showed us that M$, Apple, Facebook and all of the rest of the usual suspects were on the dole to provide spook + dog custom built back doors. M$ and all of the others should be dragged before the beak for selling a hobbled product.
If you care about privacy then you don't use Windows because by using Windows you have no expectation of privacy and this is common knowledge considering the past behavior of this corporation. That being said Edge would be better if they restored the delete usage data that they aped off of Firefox.
"IVOX then stores the data, aggregating it to produce a driver's score. It sends that score, rather than your precious vehicle data, to insurance firms who will then adjust the premium to suit both grannies and boy racers." Everyone including IVOX and the insurance corporations know that this is less about reducing premiums and all about making non-monitored driving as expensive as possible.
The data needs to be owned by the guy who bought the car before any of this other stuff can be considered otherwise it will be a massive invasion of privacy and will result in a big pile of lawsuits.
Sounds like Lloyd's needs to bend over for a good examination. Outsourcing like this tends to indicated executive malfeasance.
US corps. are supposed to already perform due diligence about looking for a US citizen before giving the job to a maggot wrangler. That many do not is just part of the reason why there should be a new visa freeze with existing visas allowed to expire with the option to allow the holder to nationalize or leave. There also should be reciprocity as it is there is no way to legally work in India unless you find yourself there as an internal transfer.
The you can't find US citizen/techs is that SV will not hire them. There is a discrimination suit bouncing around against Google and others. SV gets a tax incentive to hire unskilled labor from outside of the US.
They have access to foreign government backed services that will place a job maggot and help them get a visa.
If not then why dump all of that lobby money into fighting legislation like this while at the same time look like a bunch of evil bastards (which for the most part they are...).
No, the US taxpayers gets to pay to train and house unqualified, low skill labor and everyone else gets access to stolen US IP.
Ahh, the wonders of outsourcing. IBM outsourced this to various maggot wranglers cum sub contractors and they got what they paid for. It is fraud, anytime you read outsourcing, think fraud.
Unless you and your colleague are boxers...
Israel is smart enough to prevent foreign nationals from using visas to destroy the tech sector. Oz is in the same boat as Blighty and the US as greedo executives have used cheap, exploitable labor and broken visa systems to keep salaries down so that executive compensation can go up without ticking off the stock holders terribly.
Interesting article but the 90 gallon gorilla in the room is privacy. Chrome is there to funnel information into Google, Edge/IE the same for M$. Firefox is the most popular browser with believable privacy features.
Before the Tech industry wrangled a tax incentive to bring in cheap, exploitable labor computing was supporting entire universities, newspapers entire sections to just computing related employment and even bookstore dedicating whole floors to computing related reading.
Irving is hypocrite, his maggot wranglers are being sued for discrimination because they hire only South Asian and mainly male. GoDaddy is losing relevance anyway, there are better and less expensive domain pimps out there and GoDaddy's service bites.
Albany is full of it. Maybe if they would actually hire some of the IT workers who take the placement exams they would have some. It smells like a kickback scheme where someone is looking at a big kickback payday form some IT head shop maggot wrangler.
Stormtroopers in ANH were an elite troop type but have devolved into blaster practice.
The Airforce has been trying to kill A10 since soon after its introduction as they do want to be in the business of supporting ground troops but rather picture themselves dueling in the sky. Too bad missiles, not jets dogfight now. It is surprising that the Marines did not pick these up since flying artillery is their kind of thing. These are much more reasonable to service than a Harrier and are hell on helicopters and any ground armor.
