Is flutter picking the same as tremolo picking?

I can tremolo pick with varying degrees of pick attack. It's easier to pick lightly at first, but you can dig right into it also.

What a horrible night to have a curse.

I've never heard of flutter picking, but it does sound like tremolo picking--which brings me to another question:

 

If tremolo is a modulation of volume, how did someone ever come up w/ the term "tremolo picking"? It's anything but.

 

And a tremolo bar? It's a vibrato bar! Or whammy will work in a pinch :cool:

It's Leo's Fender's fault for demeaning the actual terms. :) I don't blame him completely, as he was more or less a designer of the instruments, and not a player (or much of one for that matter, I think).
