      UPDATED: The US has filed charges against Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou. Here's what the case could mean for the future of both the tech company and US-China relations. the CNN link at bottom goes to a video that is not long maybe 5 minutes tops.


      Another thing is...


      Washington (CNN)The US has underscored to Germany its threat to limit intelligence sharing with countries that use Chinese tech giant Huawei to build their 5G communications networks.

      US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell sent a letter to the German government last week threatening to curtail German access to US intelligence if Berlin decides to issue contracts to Huawei, according to a US official familiar with the matter.
      "The Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy has indeed received a letter; there is no comment on its content from their side. There will be a quick reply," said Matthias Wehler, spokesperson at the German embassy in DC. Germany announced March 7 that it wouldn't ban any company from bidding on 5G contracts.
      As the US lobbies against Huawei, now the world's largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer, the issue is straining US ties with some allies and is becoming a potent irritant in a US-China relationship already strained by trade friction.
      China and Huawei have vigorously pushed back on the US charges and the telecom giant has announced plans to file suit against the US over the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act, which bans US federal agencies from buying Huawei products.
      The 5G network is the next generation of wireless networks that promises to be 100 times faster and more reliable than current technology. It is a market that will be worth billions, as 5G will require compatible new phones and communications equipment.
      The US has pushed for a ban on Huawei technology with the UK, Australia, Poland, the European Union, the Philippines and a slew of other countries. Security concerns have led Australia to completely ban the company's technology and New Zealand has moved to partially restrict it.
      In February, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made the costs of adopting Huawei technology explicit to European colleagues.
      Speaking in Hungary, the top US diplomat said that if allies choose Huawei equipment and it "is co-located where we have important American systems, it makes it more difficult for us to partner alongside them."



      The US has to worry about just as much spyware from other countries like Russia. Viruses, Trojans, and deeply embedded spyware has affected all of our Technology for some years now. We have known about this stuff in tech coming out of China and several other places. It's laptops, TVs, cellphones, even in kids toys and anything in China that has a processor, flash drive, or a hard drive in it. It's all countries receiving, or they are sending. The US up until now has done nothing but rely on anti-Trojan, Antivirus, and anti-spyware software. Now all of the sudden they care. Should we be mad that the US waited until now to do this? They could of acted more responsibly sooner which is true. But... Hell no just because we got it wrong doesn't mean we can't fix it now. How else are we going to stop other Nations if we are not tough with them? I welcome this, but I caution this too because the US has been accused of the very same things in software that was forced to have back doors. Does this mean no more back doors? What about the NSA crap of collecting data? Word is they are still doing it.


      Also of note is China's Lenovo Computers shipped to the US. The US caught this company doing the same thing that Huawei did. The thing is that Lenovo computers had so much spyware in it that they had to release an computer OS and Hardware update in order to comply. Before you go say, "whew at least they fixed it." Well they did, but you need to know that many Government offices, hospitals, doctors, Insurance companies use this brand because it is so cheap. So how much info did they loose? and the burning question is, 'why didn't we see a slew of companies come forward stating they were compromised and their data was probably stolen? We didn't hear a word out of anyone during the Lenovo breach. That... is very disappointing AND DISTURBING.

          The only computers made in USA are made by Lenovo, a Chinese firm that makes them exclusively for the US government. All other PCs are made in China.

          I work for a Chinese State owned enterprise, and we use Dell computers, which like all Dells, are made in China.

              Instead of reading bullshit produced by the US government, go read the technical reports and reviews of Huawei phones and their 5G technology. You will find Huawei phones are rated to be the equal of Apple and only cost half the price. Their 5G equipment is head over heels ahead of Nokia, and is already rolled out in 120 countries. The Euro-American version by Nokia still doesn't work properly, and probably never will equal Huawei.

              Is it really any surprise that American business will cheat and lie when they can't compete? After all, it's them that's responsible for what passes as the conservative party these days.

              Oh... Edward Snowden proved its the American government who is spying on people through their phones, not the Chinese. Do yourself a favor and buy a Huawei phone next time. You will save a lot of money, and the Chinese couldn't care less what you do on it.

                  Everyone uses a Chinese made phone. They make all of them. If you don't think the CIA and Chinese equivalent have figured out how to put backdoors into your Samsung or Apple phone you are very naive.


                  Huawei phones use Leica cameras that are far superior to anything else out there.

                      The threat is a threat of being blacklisted from the global "White Boy Club."

                      So is it your contention that only the 5 Eyes countries, the anglo-saxon countries, have so-called national security interests, that only the US and its allies, its Caucasian allies, should enjoy the right to engage in spying/espionage globally, that the Asian and Eurasian, South American and African countries have no right to protect themselves themselves, have no right to act in precisely the same manner as does the US and its allies? This kind of double-standard is at the root of most of the geopolitical difficulties globally. Only one goal: Prevent economic and military and political development by non-Caucasian countries.

                      Vault 7 is a series of documents that WikiLeaks began to publish on 7 March 2017, that detail activities and capabilities of the United States Central Intelligence Agency to perform electronic surveillance and cyber warfare. The files, dated from 2013–2016, include details on the agency's software capabilities, such as the ability to compromise cars, smart TVs, web browsers (including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera Software ASA), and the operating systems of most smartphones (including Apple's iOS and Google's Android), as well as other operating systems such as Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux.

                          No I didn't say that. I said, "the US has been accused of the very same things in software that was forced to have back doors. Does this mean no more back doors? What about the NSA crap of collecting data? Word is they are still doing it. " Another thing is is in the business world the US is no different than any other country earning a living. I really believe wait until the trial. What hurt China in the first place was the patents and spyware caught in their hardware. I don't know anymore than the next person how it got there. I hope the trial is open so the public can see for themselves what is going on. All I did is post what I found on the topic. There is all kinds of speculation but what we need is facts. I hope the US people will get to see them.


                          Countries all over the world are sick of the scams, viruses, back doors, and all the other crap created in countries by Governments, and people in the tech know how. . All of this can happen to anyone. You don't have to live in the UK or Sweden, or even Canada to demand protection. But you are not immune either. But some are under the impression that because you demand different and don't mention exactly who is involved then it means you are for the top 5, or the top 10. I am not. This is something that is needed all over the world.

                          But unfortunately we do have a few countries not ready for internet. But that doesn't mean they never will. The issue I have is that during these discussions a lot of people do get left out.

                          So China and the US are at each others throats. Chances are the US will win unless China has something the US knows nothing about. They could very well have something because they have been collecting US Patents for years.


                          Years ago I saw a paper on what the US is capable of. They are far more capable than what most people know. A lot of tech is not even public knowledge. The NSA still does collect data I bet, and if the US wants to track you all the way down to a city block overseas or right here in the US they can do it. Not even our VPNs are secure enough in the US if they want the info bad enough they will get it. Including Patents if they want it and it's yours they don't care. It is now the property of the USA Gov.


                          Some people are fine with this. Other people are not. It's a hard road to travel when you have to balance security with protection, and a Constitution along side business world wide. Some say they are over the line, and others say they don't have one. But the tech industry is growing and evolving. I don't believe it was supposed to stop after the dancing baby or kitty animations hit the Internet. The US is use to being number one. In 20-30 years who knows what we will be using to search the Internet. Who knows what our Governments will be up too either. All of these countries have their own way of doing things, and not all of them will be following the US lead. This stuff with China I hope it gets sorted out. and no that doesn't mean I am on their side, it just means in business everyone deserves a chance, but if you are corrupt then you should face your consequences regardless of which side you are on. In the end we will have one winner in this.
