    Activision and EA CEOs Appear on List of "Most Overpaid" in the US's not the CEOs setting their own remuneration, they just ask for it. The board of directors, and by extension the voting shareholders are the ones who accept huge offers to attract their must-have employee.

    Huawei is Allegedly Stealing Technology from Apple Suppliers

    Saw a figure the other day that something like four fifths of industrial espionage in America is assumed to be Chinese in origin. Probably pales in comparison to all the things they force foreign companies to do in China, if they want to buddy up with a local manufacturer.

    Disney Removes Advertising from YouTube in Response to Child Exploitation Videos

    Sometimes I do feel kinda sorry for corporates like Google and the relentless torrent of filth and complaints they have to deal with. Commanding the tide to stop, really. Then I remember the last half dozen kneejerk demonetisations and copyright strikes, and I stop feeling pity for them.

    The "government" doesn't have a majority, this has veen a bipartisan assault on the rights of companies and individuals. Very much a continued theme here.

    24 Amazon Workers Injured By Robot Accident

    Can Amazon run a service where you press a button on their app, and a drone whooshes out of their warehouse to drop you a can of bear spray in a timely manner? Sounds like an idea. Why carry hiking equipment when you can walk unencumbered and let the robots do the hard work?

    DoD Funds Study to Regrow Bone Segments Using 3D Printers

    Dang, they had to cut a big mushroom of cartilage out of me. Maybe they should have offered it to you guys secondhand? If I can figure out how to keep growing the stuff, this could turn into a business model!
