No Huawei out: Prez Trump's game of chicken with China has serious consequences



Awesome but unfortunately about 20 years too late. Forced technology handovers to do business with China and outright state sponsored theft has taken its toll. And yes there is proof of backdoors in China produced products and hacked versions of IOS on Cisco routers.

For the fearful lets not do this group; lookup "Appeasement" WW2. If you let someone get away with assaulting you it will not stop. Unfortunately looking the other way cost US technology companies mega profits and more important thousands of living wage US jobs that are never coming back. What did you think was going to happen when a new competitor could sell your product cheaper because they stoled your technology?

Bring it on!

I guess all those old tech company experts laid off by Cisco and Juniper found better paying jobs after all...

Re: Cisco

This is the era of "just barely good enough" quality. High quality left the building with massive layoffs of senior coders replaced by cheap 3d world hacks. Quite a few of those 3d world hacks cheated their way to a degree with purchased test answers. Software's on the same level as making cheap kids toys now.

HP, IBM, Cisco all walking dead companies from what I hear. Run away...

Re: WTF?

Cant be a senior moment. All high tech companies have purged anyone 40 or older. More likely an HIB visa holder on facebook and twitter.
