I think every IT professional who has to deal with those companies who have been importing workers will think this is a good move.

Here in B.C. Canada it's been this way for as long as I can remember - only hire offshore talent if you are able to demonstrate you cannot find the talent here.

Fake news - how about that BBC report of WTC7 falling down before it did?

Wonder if the enquiry will look into that example.

You are a POS and whats wrong with this country. its people like u and your stupid ass thinking thats gotten this country to its knees. Fucking moron!! These people committed treason, do you have any fucking clue what that is or what that means??

Yeah, it means they did us a big favor by revealing betrayal by our own government. Unless you're a Fascist, loyalty to the nation as a whole is more important than loyalty to the government, should the two ever be in opposition. Which they frequently are.

The real traitors are people like you. Disgusting people who will excuse any government misconduct like it's their duty and believe they are servants of their government and not the other way around.

WELL SAID!

THANK YOU OBAMA!!! Edward Snowden should have been on that list.

President Obama will be known as one of the greatest Presidents in the history of the United States and drumpf will be nothing but an ugly forgotten footnote.

Snowden fled to Russia.


Sigh...


Isn't it amazing how misinformed a lot of people are.

Instead of 'The US revoked his passport while he was in transit to Ecuador, leaving him stuck in Russia' becomes 'He fled to Russia'.

But to be fair, with the mainstream media's purpose apparently being misinforming people - it shouldn't be surprising. Right?

Ok Captain Treason. If you believe so strongly in the laws of the country then you should also believe strongly in the presidents powers to revoke or commute sentences of criminals who have admitted their wrongdoing and paid for their crimes as well. You can't have one without the other, either you believe or you don't.

And also remember, it's only Treason if the American People are the enemy.

It's such a wonderful slight of hand.. the story is that Giuliani has a post in the incoming administration, which should set off all sorts of red flags. Nope.. let's talk about his website?!

A story saying that he's utterly unqualified is a sleight of hand?

Ok.

Yeah, I saw nothing in that article pointing to his qualifications or lack there of. If anything the website in question is just generic template from your typical low-end website reseller and has nothing to do with him aside from offering basic contact info. Uneasy

So, an article that Trump's pick for cyber security chief can't even secure his own website isn't about his qualifications?

When's the last time you saw anyone in IT management capable of securing their shoelaces, let alone a PC?

I've owned this game, at one point or another, a total of four times over the last two decades. I bought it at release in June (July?) 2001. I remember sitting in the doctors office in Manhattan reading the manual, waiting for my (now ex-) wife to come out, thinking, 'wow, this is gonna be totally awesome!'. And it was...a complete disaster.

Yeah. It sucked. It went back on the shelf and i've never tried it since.

I read the hacking report.

It's basically 'Hacking for dummies' - general discussion for non-technical people. It shows nothing. Absolutely nothing that means anything. Let alone proof.

This is more a case of distraction.

or as the case seems to be...

How Russians didn't hack, but this might be how they would do it.

Talk about a laughable and absurd situation.

Is this the most milked game in PC gaming history?

They are sure getting some longevity through updating to use new generations of hardware features.

Cloud computing is a stupid idea.

Having suffered through many migrations on customer requests to 'the cloud' it's resulted in HIGHER costs.

Cloud providers typically do not provide the administrative services customers require, and forcing administrators to use crappy web consoles of limited capability INCREASES the cost of administration, and slows down response time.

Troubleshooting issues is even worse, as the ratio of technicians to users is lower, so you lose money there from lost productivity.

God help you if a client wants to do something 'unusual'.

Then there's the security issues.
Then there's the bandwidth costs.
Then there's the slower performance.

Server hardware and storage isn't that expensive these days. Software licensing is rarely any different than the cloud version.

Looks somewhat interesting, but what the hell, it seems like this came out of nowhere... I've never even seen a hint of a teaser before now, and it's coming out in January?

Also gg, Games Workshop, way to carpet bomb the gaming scene.

But it's definitely most anticipated! seriously.... by who exactly?

The UK drifts more and more to being a fascist anti-foreigner surveillance state.. sad ;/

The "City of London" is the center of the power elite, with a very interesting History.

It's not surprising that surveillance that protects THEIR interests is enacted within the host country.

But if he is smart, he will not step into Germany as long as the current gov parties (CSU/CDU+SPD) are in power or anywhere near it.

They would question him, thank him, and kick his ass on a plane to Washington.

Yeah no. The man has done more to expose the corruption of the intelligence agencies and secret court of the United States than anyone in History.

There's a whole heap of 'correction' needing to be done within the political, legal and intelligence communities in the US before it is safe to return.

Best solution is to stop this culture of data collection and storage for data mining.

Far more data is collected than is needed to do things like perform a transaction.

Whilst datamining is profitable, and a core business aim of a lot of IT companies, it's just enabling too much crap.

Oh hellls yeah! I think a lot of people have been saying that for a long time. Sensitive date holders - health, insurance, banks, et al - need to be held responsible for their security. It's not like they don't have deep enough pockets, they simply choose not to do it so they can pocket the monies instead.

Let's make the NSA etc stop using back doors and maybe we can start holding companies to account for breaches.

So sick and tired of patching backdoors like heartbleed was.

Wow on the Assange hate headline.

There was no rape claim by anyone other than a swedish policeman and a swedish prosecutor - both friends of a right wing paper with ties to the US state department.

I guess if you repeat a lie often enough, gullible people will think 'the news can't lie' and think it's the truth.
