Huawei sold nearly 203 million phones last year, up from 150 million in 2017, according to data tracking firm Gartner, overtaking Apple to threaten Samsung atop the global charts.




But in cutting off Huawei, Google risks being deprived of the revenue-generating data of all those phone owners around the world.

And other Chinese smartphone makers, such as Xiaomi, Oppo and OnePlus, will be watching closely.

Should Huawei build its own system, it's conceivable that those companies might join it, in a bid to end their own vulnerability to future actions by the US government or companies.

this is WW3 . once I read that ww3 will be fought this way... climatically, economically, famine, drought


this type of thing is another reason why Trump's presidency is going to have dire consequences in the long run. The more he tries to bully people, other countries are going to say "you know what - we can do this on our own"... that's going to be a huge blow to the US longterm

I am soon seeing a headline that reads...
"All ppl of Chinese Heritage are to register at their nearest office of the Police department"
Then all of them will be expelled or interned...


EDIT
TBF - I don't think that he ever said something against Blacks ...
only Mexicans - Chinese and Muslims

it's more subtle with black people, but it's definitely there. he's not using outright slurs, but rather implication and generalizations

I think it boils down to economics. They want to hold back China, but in the end it could backfire instead.

They will choose a new leader who takes over, which is probably good for Leave. I think I had read Boris Johnson is favourite.

It is also very possible there will be a massive backlash calling for an election though, and I think it's only right there is one.

Not a conservative supporter so don't care on that regard. Very concerned, though, that a No Deal Brexit on Halloween now looks inevitable. It could all have been avoided if Cameron had not promised a referendum for cheap votes 4 years ago. He would have won anyway.

By the way, the Brexit party are going to win the European elections by a landslide. Even a lot of people that voted remain (I cannot call them true Remainers) voted for them because they now want Brexit and the "will of the people" to happen. The true Remainers, people like me, did not vote as we do not believe there is a strong enough voice from any party against Brexit. Sad times and I believe the Brexit lot will win and get their no deal because they shout the loudest

Brexit Party getting the biggest share is no surprise, but the real battle will be fought in Westminster not Strasbourg.

It shouldn’t be treated as a vote for Brexit or for no deal because there are way more parties than options. Unfortunately it will though...
