For years the US government has warned the world that Chinese telecom giant Huawei is not to be trusted.Some governments agree: Australia and Japan have blocked Huawei gear from their next-generation 5G wireless networks.But others, including US allies, disagree.A UK Parliament committee rejected a proposed ban on British telecom carriers using Huawei gear."There are no technical grounds for excluding Huawei entirely from the UK's 5G or other telecommunications networks," UK Member of Parliament Norman Lamb, chair of the Science and Technology Committee, wrote in a letter explaining the committee's conclusions.The committee's decision follows the European Union's decision in March not to ban Huawei outright, but instead to ask member countries to assess the risks to their 5G networks.
Huawei has long been effectively been frozen out of the US telecoms market due to fears that its equipment is a national security risk, allegations that it has continually denied.Last month, US firms were ordered to stop doing business with the company, a decision which means future handsets may no longer receive updates for Google's Android operating system or access its popular applications.The US government’s actions also make it significantly harder for Huawei to source components for its devices.Everything you need to knowHowever, Huawei is a key supplier of radio equipment to all four major UK operators.America is pressuring allies to follow its lead, despite the absence of any evidence to suggest any wrongdoing from Huawei, and the UK is carrying it out its own assessment.

The National Office Against Pornographic and Illegal Publications (NOAPIP) on Tuesday requested regulators, including the Cyber Administration of China (CAC), to suspend the service of three reading platforms for up to three months.Why it matters: A new wave of cleanups targeting online reading platforms comes just two months after the last.The increasingly frequent inspections and punishments highlight NOAPIP’s determination to rein in the online reading industry.The three suspended apps are Midu Novel, Beijing-based Jinjiang Wenxue Cheng, and Bytedance’s Tomato Novel.Besides top-ranked Midu Novel, Jingjiang Wenxue Cheng is ranked 14th and Tomato Novel is far lower, 97th on Apple’s China App Store free reading app download rankings as of Tuesday afternoon, according to online data providers Qimai.Details: In the notice dated Tuesday, the NOAPIP censured the three platforms for allowing lowbrow and sexually suggestive content, which “damaged readers’ interests” as well as “corrupted the industry’s culture.”
Huawei announced on Monday that it would unveil a smart television product in August, according to Chinese media outlet Yicai, a move that broadens the Chinese telecom giant’s business into the TV-related sector.Why it matters: Huawei is expanding its consumer business into other hardware segments as governments in countries around the globe scrutinize its telecom equipment over cybersecurity concerns and smartphone sales decline after it lost access to Android following a US trade ban in May.Huawei’s sales revenue from its consumer business—which sells smartphone, laptops, and other gadgets—grew 45% year on year to RMB 348.9 billion (around $50.7 billion) in 2018, according to its annual financial results released in March.But Huawei’s smartphone sales sank 40% from May to June after the US Commerce Department placed the company on a trade blacklist, and Google restricted its access to Android.“TV has its irreplaceable advantages.TVs and smartphones will work as two centers in people’s daily lives.”
Huawei, the Chinese manufacturer targeted by a Trump administration trade ban, is expected to dismiss a substantial number of people in the US in the coming weeks.The number of individuals affected remains unclear but the layoffs, at the telecoms kit maker's US R subsidiary, Futurewei Technologies, could affect hundreds of workers in California, Texas, and Washington, according to the Wall Street Journal.The Register asked Huawei to comment but a spokesperson on Monday declined, saying the biz, as a policy, does not address "rumor and speculation."On May 16, the beleaguered manufacturer, along with 68 of its affiliates, was placed on the US Commerce Department's Entity List, which forbids companies subject to US law from doing business with the firm without special permission from the US government.Four days later, Huawei was given a 90-day General License so that its customers have time to make deals with new suppliers.When the General License expires on August 19, the ban will go into effect unless circumstances change.
Democrats in Congress are considering a new bill that would stop Facebook’s cryptocurrency plans in its tracks.Dubbed the Keep Big Tech Out of Finance Act, the new bill would explicitly ban large platform companies from performing banking functions.The bill would be a direct rebuke to Facebook’s plans with the Libra cryptocurrency, which would likely have to be severed from the company if the bill were introduced and passed.The bill has not yet been introduced to Congress, and as a result, its contents are far from final.Still, it has been the subject of significant interest as representatives from Facebook appear before the House Banking Committee on Wednesday.The Verge obtained a draft copy of the bill that was circulated for discussion.
Huawei will reportedly be likely waiting until after the Canadian election in October to find out whether it will be banned on providing 5G tech there, too.Citing three sources, Reuters reported Monday the decision is tied to the Canadians who remain detained in China.Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada at the request of the US over alleged Iran sanctions violations in early Dec. 2018.Beijing followed this by detaining two Canadian citizens in China a week later.Reuters says experts in Ottawa are currently investigating whether national security will be impacted by 5G networks, including Huawei's involvement in them.Back in January, China had reportedly warned Canada that there would be repercussions if it was banned for 5G.
US companies may be able to resume sales to Huawei in as little as two weeks, in a sign that the US administration is willing to move forward quickly on allaying trade restrictions.In May the administation placed Huawei on a national security blacklist, a move that has threatened to disrupt worldwide telecommunications supply chains and to delay 5G rollouts.Huawei has estimated the ban will reduce its sales by $25 billion (£20bn) both this year and next year, and is reportedly planning to lay off hundreds of US research staff as a result.Huawei’s placement on the so-called Entity List would have rendered Google unable to provide Android software and services to new Huawei phones, although existing models are still supported.Late in June US president Trump, after a meeting with China’s Xi Jinping, said US companies would be allowed to resume sales to Huawei, and commerce secretary Wilbur Ross later confirmed sales would be allowed in cases where there was no national security threat.However, it remains unclear which products or services would be permitted, and the US Commerce Department held a conference last week to provide more clarity to US suppliers.
According to a new report from The Wall Street Journal, Chinese telecommunications company Huawei plans to layoff hundreds of its U.S.-based employees.It’s very likely these reported layoffs are related to the United States government’s ban on Huawei, which is still (mostly) in effect.The report from The WSJ suggests most of the layoffs will be centered on workers involved with an R subsidiary called Futurewei Technologies.Huawei runs multiple Futurewei labs throughout the U.S. which are staffed by both U.S. citizens as well as foreign citizens temporarily in the U.S.Reportedly, Huawei will give the option to visiting Chinese citizens of returning to China for reassignment.However, the U.S.-based employees will be let go.
A parliamentary committee has called on the government to publish its review into the country’s telecommunications supply chain by the end of August, as delays to the government’s decision on whether to permit Huawei equipment are having a knock-on impact on the UK’s rollout of 5G networks.Huawei’s role in the UK is a key issue in the government’s study, which was originally scheduled for publication in the spring, and the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee said there were no technical grounds for a complete ban on the Chinese firm.However, the committee acknowledged there may be “geopolitical or ethical grounds” for a government ban.The UK and other countries have been under sustained pressure from the US in recent months to ban Huawei 5G equipment, amidst broader trade tensions between the US and China.In May the US placed Huawei on a national security blacklist, although the US administration has indicated more recently it will soon allow companies to recommence sales to the Shenzhen-based firm.“We have found no evidence from our work to suggest that the complete exclusion of Huawei from the UK’s telecommunications network would, from a technical point of view, constitute a proportionate response to the security threat posed by foreign suppliers,” the Parliamentary committee said, following an evidence session in which it heard from experts and from Huawei itself.
U.S. companies may get approval to start new sales to Huawei in two to four weeks.Huawei was placed on an entity list in May that prohibits U.S. companies from supplying it with new goods and services without a license.President Donald Trump recently announced that American firms could sell products to Huawei after meeting with Chinese president Xi Jinping.Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said licenses would be issued where there is no threat to national security.Huawei is also planning layoffs at its U.S.-based research and development business, according to The Wall Street Journal.WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. may approve licenses for companies to re-start new sales to Huawei in as little as two weeks, according to a senior U.S. official, in a sign President Donald Trump's recent effort to ease restrictions on the Chinese company could move forward quickly.
Chair of the Science and Technology Committee in the UK, Norman Lamb, has stated there is not enough technical evidence to ban Huawei and is demanding a final decision by the end of August.In a letter written to Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), Lamb has demanded a conclusion to the Supply Chain Review which has staggered the progress of 5G networks in the UK.Many in the industry have become increasingly frustrated with the state of purgatory which has loomed over the UK telecoms industry, and now the influential Science and Technology Committee has had enough.“Following my Committee’s recent evidence session, we have concluded that there are no technical grounds for excluding Huawei entirely from the UK’s 5G or other telecommunications networks,” said Lamb.“The benefits of 5G are clear and the removal of Huawei from the current or future networks could cause significant delays.However, as outlined in the letter to the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, we feel there may well be geopolitical or ethical considerations that the Government need to take into account when deciding whether they should use Huawei’s equipment.”
American technology firms could be permitted to resume business with Huawei within the next “two to four weeks” as the US ban on sales to the Chinese mobile giant is relaxed.After years of passive hostility, Washington effectively blacklisted Huawei on national security grounds earlier in 2019.The ruling limits Huawei’s access to components and prevents its handsets from receiving updates for the Android operating system from Google or access to its popular applications.Although Huawei is building its own operating system and produces its own components (it already makes its own Kirin processors), the absence of key services like Google Maps and the Google Play Store is a huge blow in terms of the appeal of its devices in Western markets.Meanwhile, the production of components such as modems is an expensive, laborious task.However, it has also had a significant impact on US vendors, many of whom will lose significant revenue streams if the ban persists.
Microsoft’s cloud services has run into a fresh roadblock in Germany, after the state of Hesse ruled it is illegal for its schools to use Office 365 citing “privacy concerns.”The Hesse Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (HBDI) ruled that using the popular cloud platform’s standard configuration exposes personal information about students and teachers “to potential access by US authorities.”In declaring that Windows 10 and Office 365 is not compliant with EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for use in schools, this development ends years of debate over whether “schools can use Microsoft’s Office 365 software in compliance with data protection regulations.”The heart of the issue concerns the telemetry information sent by Windows 10 operating system and the company’s cloud solution back to the US.This information can include anything from regular software diagnostic data to user content from Office applications, such as email subject lines and sentences from documents where the company’s translation or spellchecker tools were used.Collection of such information is a violation of GDPR laws that came into effect last May.
Huawei’s reputation may have been irrevocably damaged by accusations of espionage, but the Chinese manufacturer appears poised to regain some of its business in both the United Kingdom and the United States — albeit under continued clouds of suspicion.A key U.K. parliamentary committee is now recommending that Huawei’s gear be allowed at the edges of the country’s 5G networks, while the U.S. is reportedly preparing to let certain companies resume business with Huawei, reducing the disruptive impact of its currently broad ban.While the U.S. spent much of 2018 strong-arming international allies to keep Huawei gear out of their 5G networks, the House of Commons’ Science and Technology Committee has — after a review of the U.K.’s telecommunications supply chain — determined that fully excluding the company as a network supplier doesn’t make sense.As a just-published letter from committee chair Norman Lamb notes, U.K. carriers already use networking gear from multiple Chinese companies and have no special reason to suspect Huawei’s products of being especially insecure.This isn’t to say that Huawei has the country’s full trust; rather, the U.K. has continued to frame network security as an issue of risk management, with no ability to guarantee a “100% secure system.” Though the committee was aware of past Huawei cybersecurity lapses, it recommended pressuring the company to improve its software and said the U.K. should only formally block Huawei from supplying gear for the country’s network cores — a step carriers have “mostly” voluntarily followed already.However, the panel suggested that a formal exclusion be made on a non-discriminatory basis, providing “clear criteria that could be applied to another organization in the future.”
Huawei has been working on its plan B operating system for years now, with the U.S. trade ban against the company forcing it to accelerate plans.We’ve heard about several names for the platform before, but it sounds like Huawei has yet another name up its sleeve.Let’sGoDigital uncovered a trademark application for “Harmony” via the EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).The application notes that the trademark is related to “mobile operating systems; computer operating systems; downloadable operating system programs.”The outlet reports that the application was filed by a firm called Forresters, and that this company also filed Huawei’s Hongmeng OS and P Smart Z trademarks.The former filing is another name for the brand’s new operating system.
Huawei’s fate still hangs in the balance despite some on the US side talking about easing some but definitely not all restrictions.That might not be enough for Huawei to completely change its course and scrap the plans it made to compensate for the effects of the restrictions.One of those is the planned layoffs in its US-based R subsidiary that could affect no small amount of American jobs.Some might see it as retaliation but, to be fair, Huawei doesn’t have much choice in the matter.The US blacklist forbids US companies from supplying US-sourced technology to Huawei.Since that is exactly what Huawei’s Futurewei Technologies research and development subsidiary does, that business is pretty done for.
Respawn Entertainment, in its continuing fight against cheaters and spammers in Apex Legends, will soon match them up against each other to prevent them from destroying the experience for legitimate players.The developer, in a check-in post on Reddit, provided a glimpse into what it is working on behind the scenes to combat cheating in the battle royale shooter.One of the features that Respawn is working on is matchmaking that will place detected cheaters and spammers in games against each other.By making them fight against each other, legitimate players will be saved from the frustration of going up against cheaters, though Redditors believe that there are other benefits to Respawn’s move.Redditor Danksop said that by making cheaters fight against each other instead of outright banning them, they will remain off the game’s live servers as a ban will likely just make them create another account immediately.Cheaters may soon figure out that they are going up against other cheaters exclusively, and may then create a new account to get back to the live servers.
Chinese telecommunications firm Huawei is reportedly preparing to lay off hundreds of workers in the United States, reports The Wall Street Journal.The company has struggled in recent months after the Trump administration placed a de facto ban on US sales to the company, citing potential security threats and amidst the ongoing US-Chinese trade war.According to the WSJ, Huawei is planning to lay off workers at a research subsidiary called Futurewei Technologies, which operates a number of research labs.Huawei will reportedly allow some Chinese employees the option of relocating back to China to remain within the company.Some employees have apparently already been notified that they will be let go, with other layoffs planned in the near future.In May, the White House issued an executive order that allowed the US Commerce Secretary to give the US the authority to prevent US companies from selling to entities designated a threat to national security.
