Downfall fallout: Intel knew AVX chips were insecure and did nothing, lawsuit claims

So is it 'open' or mot?

I honestly don't think Chinese chip designers give a toss what the US has to say on the matter.

Still spouting crap? Just stop!

As much as you'd like to believe it, I don't hang on your every post and have better things to do with my time than read El Reg all day. Apologies if I've kept you waiting. So, now you've changed your bullshit story from "Here's a bunch if links from accusations made by the BBC by way of proving my lies" to "I can't give you proof of the evidence I have because I'm so important that I will just make shit up and you'll just have to believe that Dominion rigged the election?"

As for my anonymity, I registered my username with a valid email account, just like everyone else who has a valid username! DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

So no, my posting as my pseudonym is nothing like your cowardly AC posting.


I'm still waiting. Strangely, there have been NO leaks on any media sources to prove or substantiate your claims in any way.


Re: What part of this...

FFS! "I cannot discuss information gathered by the industry but one of the sources you cannot discount is Huawei themselves."

That's up there with asking for proof that God exists! "I can't show you but I have evidence. I just can't show you because...You'll just have to take my word for it that there is."

Any more bullshit you want to make up?


Re: What part of this...

It seems you have learned nothing over the years! Whatever useless statement you just made. Why is this not the place to air whatever you learned? At least Ed Snowden had the balls to publicly announce what he knows. Are you now comparing your cowardly bullshit to Snowden now?

Again. If you have any evidence of your bullshit claims of Huawei being nafariuos then let's see it.

Do I really have to call you a liar so many times without you being able to refute my statement?

I think I'm being played by an Internet Troll.


Re: Resorting to whataboutism...

Still no links to prove your unfounded claims?

Carry on waffling and deflecting but not answering the question or admitting that your claims are bullshit.

I'm still waiting. You lying idiot!


Re: Resorting to whataboutism...

"Therefore, dear anonymous Peshman, please rest your case: irrespective of whether the accusations are founded or not, the current narrative is invalid."

Anonymous? I think you'll find that you can actually search for any post I've made. Peshman is actually my nickname that friends and colleagues have always known me as. You truly are an anonymous coward and are looking more and more of an idiot every time you post.

Now, where's your proof of any nefarious acts carried out by Huawei in answer to my last post.

Still no links or credible evidence for your claims? I only asked for one.

You are a liar and you think you can announce the !Big Steal!... but you, AC are not clever enough to be Trump.

Nobody believes your bullshit.


Re: Resorting to whataboutism...

Oh boy!

""""However the BBC's security correspondent Gordon Corera says the UK's Intelligence and Security Committee, chaired by former Foreign Secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind, is currently looking at Huawei to try and understand what the risks might be and assess what measures have been taken to deal with them.

"The UK's relationship with Huawei has been a sensitive issue for a number of years," he said."""

That was already back in 2012. At that time, Huawei was not important enough to motivate "protectionist" measures.

I'm not even mentioning all the cyber espionage and hacker groups. Probably another figment of Trump's imagination. Right?

Rest your case, peshman. You're only making it worse."

Do you not see the idiocy of your statement?

Someone accused somebody of doing something. When the accused said that they are open to scrutiny to prove to you that they haven't done anything of the sort that you're accusing them of you still lie about them having done whatever you imagined they did.

Are you really so far down your rabbit hole that you're still willing to look like a fool and hide behind your AC status

I say you're a lying coward. Prove me wrong. Show me some EVIDENCE of Huawei being nefarious. I'll show you plenty of the US being an arse though.


Re: Resorting to whataboutism...

Try to focus on the Headline. Not your own thoughts;

!Uncle Sam to tighten chip export chokehold on China... again"

Where did that start? Now do you get why Trump was brought into this?


Re: Resorting to whataboutism...

I think the phrase "Pots and kettles" is what comes to mind.

You might prefer the one about "Stones and glasshouses" instead.

The US started this shit with Trump's protectionism so suck it up!


Re: Resorting to whataboutism...

...or it's just pointing out hypocrisy?

"There are more brands of cars than Linux desktop envs."

That's a totally inadequate analogy.

There are more brands and models of PC's than OS's.

All cars are either Auto gear shift or manual gear shift with the gears in the same place on the gear stick and the pedals in the same place.

Huawei's UK tech eviction reportedly caused Sky to fall on mobile customers


Re: Don't keep repeating a lie

...but unlike CISCO there were no backdoors to be found. They even provided all of the firmware code to prove as much. However, you keep trying to persuade yourself of the lie that you're perpetuating to prove the original point.

I'm happy to be proved wrong if you can provide a link to ANY evidence for your claim.

I'll wait. I will probably die of old age first though.

Re: why aren't they going to the ISS?

Fair point, well made Sir.


Re: why aren't they going to the ISS?

...And thank you for proving my point!

After getting shafted by the US and Google by adopting Android and then having Google services removed by them in a faux trade war why would you trust anyone else to have your back?

Better to go it alone and prove that you can beat the competition at their own game.

In a couple of years even China's silicone processor prowess will be leaving Intel and AMD behind. MediaTek and Kirin are already causing shockwaves in that space right now.


Re: why aren't they going to the ISS?

Would you trust the US after what they did to Huawei? Arguably the best phone manufacturer on the planet until the good 'ol US of A decided to pull Google services and tell the rest of the world to rip out any Huawei 5G gear under the guise of National Security. No proof of any backdoors into their kit has ever been found, by the way...unlike CISCO.

The Chinese are sticking two fingers up at the US and even outclassing them in the space race. I love a good underdog story.

Dark side of the moon? Yeah, the Chinese are there.

Mars Rover? Yeah, they have one of those too.

Space station? Who needs the ISS? China has a nice shiny new one of those too.

Epic vs. Apple Australian side quest allowed to resume


What's your point?

Lawyers charge whatever their clients are willing to pay for their services. Want a cheaper lawyer? Go somewhere else where a cheaper lawyer will take your case. Ask yourself though...Why are they cheaper? Do you want to take the risk of losing your case because they might not be as skilled as the more expensive option? Going cheap could turn out to be false economy.

Motorola: Oops, phone busted? Grab a spudger and go get 'em, champ


Re: I think my next phone will be a Motorola

That depends on your perception of repairability. Any mobile is repairable. It just depends on whether you have the ability to do it yourself or you take it to a repair outfit like iSmash. My P10 battery ballooned recently and rather than bother to do it myself I took it in. 20 mins and 50 quid lighter it's as good as new with a 12 month warranty against the work they carried out on it.

How did the iPad manage to change the way people view entertainment? They had broadcast TV's before Netflix and radios before Spotify didn't they? Cinema's before Netflix,

Just because you can't see the value of an advance in technology until it begins to fulfill a requirement that you didn't know you had doesn't make its existence worthless. If it truly is worthless then it'll just fade away into obscurity like many other products have in the past.


Hopefully fixed by later tonight

I hooked up my mother's living room lamps to smart-plugs so that she could manage the lighting post Hip Op. She's completely deaf in one ear and partially deaf in the other so she can now also 'ask' alexa to make calls hands-free from her armchair.

YOU, may not see a need for a puck that manages to turn YOUR lights on and off, or draws the curtains for you. However, for every solution looking for a problem there's invariably a problem waiting for a solution that nobody could foresee. Sure, before I bought the 'Dots' she was living. Now she's living more comfortably and probably more safely too.

Now she uses them for everything from catching up on the News headlines to managing her lighting and making phone calls. I didn't realise when I'd bought them for her how useful they'd be. Now I know that if she falls over then she can still call for help by asking Alexa to place the call for her.

I, for one, am grateful that the technology exists and it's pretty affordable too.
