U.S. government halts Huawei products over national security threat

Read also : News, Research and Analysis

Huawei is a Chinese telecommunications company, and the US government has banned Huawei from buying components from American companies.

This comes after the arrest of Huawei’s CFO in Canada on December 1st. The US government is concerned about the security of Huawei’s products, especially since its CEO’s daughter was arrested in Canada for violating sanctions against Iran earlier this year. The bigger issue here is that China has been accused of spying on other countries for years now, so it makes sense why people would be worried about national security when it comes to using Chinese technology like smartphones or laptops.

Intel’s new CEO is an insider who has been there for a decade.

Brian Krzanich started at Intel in 1982, and he was promoted from COO to CEO in 2013. He began his career with the company as a manufacturing engineer before moving up through its ranks to head up other parts of the business: sales and marketing, operations, product development and planning.

In his time as CEO (and COO), Krzanich has overseen some major projects for Intel: most notably its transition from being mostly focused on PCs–which were becoming less popular–to focusing on smartphones and tablets instead; as well as its acquisition of Altera Corp., which gave it access to more advanced semiconductors used in servers that power cloud computing services such as Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud Platforms

Qualcomm said it will offer free 5G modems to smartphone makers

Qualcomm has announced that it will offer its 5G modems for free to smartphone makers. The move comes as a response to the recent launch of Apple’s iPhone 11, which includes Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855 processor but does not have a 5G modem included in its design.

Apple has chosen instead to use Intel’s XMM 8060 modem chip in its new iPhones–a decision likely made due to Apple’s strained relationship with Qualcomm over licensing fees and patent disputes related to technology used in iPhones and iPads.

Qualcomm said that it will provide its own Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset with integrated 5G connectivity beginning next year through 2020 so that “all major OEMs” can include these chipsets in their devices without having any additional cost burden on them or their customers

Apple Inc.’s next iPhone won’t have 5G until 2020 at the earliest, WSJ reports

Apple Inc.’s next iPhone won’t have 5G until 2020 at the earliest, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The report said that Apple is working on a 5G chip for the 2020 iPhone and noted that the company has been working on this project for years. Apple’s main competitor, Samsung Electronics Co., already has a 5G phone available in select markets such as South Korea and Hong Kong.

The WSJ also reported that there are various challenges to making 5G as fast as claimed: It’s supposed to be 40 times faster than 4G; however, radio waves used for 5G don’t travel very far (about 1 mile) nor can they penetrate through buildings or other obstacles like trees or hillsides easily–making it difficult for carriers who want customers using their service everywhere from downtown city streets where tall skyscrapers may block signals from reaching people outside their homes or offices located far away from each other inside rural areas without much access points nearby either due to distance between them so we’ll likely see more “carrier exclusives” like we did with T-Mobile/Sprint merger where only one carrier gets certain devices while others don’t since they’re not compatible with both networks yet

Facebook paid users up to $20 per install for its Android app, report says

Facebook reportedly paid people up to $20 per install for the Facebook Research app, which tracked user data and location.

Facebook is in trouble again. This time, it’s because the social media giant allegedly paid users up to $20 (that’s more than twice as much as last year) per installation of its Facebook Research app on Android phones. The company has also been accused of paying users who installed a different surveillance application that collected call logs and SMS messages from their devices.

The company was hit with an FTC complaint filed on Thursday by two US senators and the New York attorney general over these practices: “Facebook did not fully inform users about how their information would be shared or used,” said Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.).
