Posted in: Chinese state media urges Canada to defy U.S. and free Huawei exec See in context

China demands respect, but yet they do not respect other countries' law and order. Talk about speaking from both sides of the mouth. Respect has to be earned not given. Money cannot buy respect or even class.

As soon as there is another country that has the same GDP or even close to the same GDP as China, I doubt other countries would even bother with them.

"I am proud of Huawei, I am proud of my motherland,"

Probably only those who grew up there.

Why still manned aircraft? Without human, you can ignore all physical limits of human, perform crazy maneuver. you can even launch in the air straight up with rocket propellants. On top of that you can replace that hundred something pounds human with the same weight of weapons.

Posted in: Hold the phone: Huawei mistrust imperils China tech ambitions See in context

Regardless whether Hauwei will be allowed to set up 5G in western countries or not, any product coming out from Chinese factories should be put under a microscope. After all, it has been found that they put spy chip right on the mother board already. And, communication network is strategically very important.

Posted in: Japan to bar Huawei, ZTE from gov't contracts, sources say See in context

China was caught placing spy chips already. Why would anyone use Huawei when they can just get an Apple, or Samsung phones?

They also could have spy chip or malicious SW right at the factories as well. Actually, anyone should pay attention to anything come out from the production line in China.

This was one of the most frustrating issues that I was very worried for a long time. I remember several years ago, one of the Chinese softwares was found sending every typing of users to its company in China.

Motherboard? You just need to google Supermicro embedded spy chip and you can find that.

Posted in: White House, Trudeau seek to distance themselves from Huawei exec's arrest See in context

It is actually true though, Huawei phones do spy on everything that you do, they are heavily pushing their PR in Japan too. You can see their products everywhere now in Yodobashi and Bic Camera.

Didn't US announced that server board (Supermicro) made in China has factory installed spy chip right there on the motherboard a moth back or so? That rumors had been around for a while about China putting spyware right in the manufacturing process, but it was never proven until then. They only found in Supermicro's MB, I am not surprised if there are more. Such as router......

Why not just slap them with high treason? Not too sure about Australia, but I think it is punishable by death in US though.

Galloway said it would look bad for Facebook to fire one of the only top female executives in an industry where women "face inordinately high obstacles to get to leadership positions."

Gender should not be part of it, right? Do they want equality or not? It should all based on merits and success factor, not by race/gender/anything.

So, a full size quadcopter. I was thinking about that last week for a full size one as well. Then, what if one of the propeller gave in? The whole craft would be spinning uncontrollably. How do the occupant(s) escape when the craft is falling. An plane could glide and helicopter could perform auto-gyro to land, a quad would just drop straight down.

China's definition of extremist groups could be very board. It is probably a super set of what western society's definition ranging from democracy to a daily hobby group.

Nato is fine. There are many food that are far more disgusting than Nato. They are probably also in that museum as well. For example, tarantula and witchetty grub. Of the 2, I would "probably" try the grub but tarantula would be too much for me. Since it is JT, it would probably only point out the one that are Japan.

Not too surprised as a lot of companies are switching to Linux for their severs. AIX and IBM's Power series are very fine OS and systems, but are kind of expensive. On the other hand, Linux is cheaper and can even run on a cheap PC. However, once it falls into IBM, I can imagine the annual maintenance and licensing fee would be a lot more than it is now.
