Re: China is supporting the US
It"s much less sensational than the rest of the explications why China holds so much US debt but its much closer to reality.

I tried to install it on linux but it was dirty stuff pulling in tons of win32 dependencies and all. That was just a empty project. It might run on linux but I didn't bother to look any further to that mess. If they want it cross platform at least make it easy to start with a clean slate and not by pulling a quarter of a century in legacy compatibility.
I think there is good reason to still not trust microsoft btw
Funny thing is these "protesters" are "demanding greater democracy" but typically they will do everything to silence anyone disagreeing with them or refuting their serial lies, such as that the HK police is raping and murdering arrested protesters.
You comment goes strait to the core of this "revolution", the truth they hate so much,that calls for a fat downvote.
I don't like my ISP but I have more trust in them than Cloudflare. I rather have my ISP track me than that US super spy Cloudflare.
Mozilla changing the default behaviour of DNS, handing all tracking info to 1 giant slurp corporation from the US causes a lot of questions about Mozilla intend. Yes it's customizable but who does that?!
(I do but it doesn't matter, most won't)
"unless you want to tip-toe through unofficial and under-regulated app souks. "
Finally there is a chance the ugly monopoly is broken and we are allowed to use a phone free from those monopoly services as the European community is craving for years. But what says ElReg editor about it? Compared to the google app store that is teaming with malware he scares us the alternative must be under-regulated.
This might well be from a simulator, isn't it a nice marketing move if it really is from a simulator, people keep talking about it.
El Regs story based on reddit talk that the picture is from a simulator says we can find real pictures of the plane on this Russian site, the "real" pictures seem to include the picture.
Maybe the author allows you to think for yourself, make up you own mind while providing some insight into the different perspectives? Reality is not easy, has an unlimited number of facets.
A journalist should not target someone but provide a critical view on the facts and the things that were said.
I like the insight it gives in the true nature of freedom of press in western democracy, the WSJ is a "renowned" media outlet, now watch publications all over the blindly republishing it. Chomsky called it the a propaganda machine.
Honestly I am surprised the register mostly escapes this, I suppose I the Chomsky model this is explained because ElReg caters to a niche of specialists, not the general mainstream.
Just a rehash of all the accusations and insinuations why you cannot choose Huawei, and even if you could, it might be more convenient to bow to US demands. It's not balanced, taking GCHQ public declarations as the highest truth, free from any geopolitical influences. It doesn't even mention that of all of the accusations there has never been actual facts found of wrongdoing such as spying for the Chinese government.
Maybe you should consider who has been the most aggressive at spying on the world. Is it the Chinese gov? I don't think so. I think those revelations brought by Snowden are still enlightening. Its the US gov who demands to capture all of the world telecom and apparently Huawei is a serious issue for them.
I think the reason they only allow tricks on powershell commandlets to make your email work is so you order a hosted solution such as outlook365. It's complicated -perl or bash is like basic compared to powershell-, slow and full of undocumented 'features' you only learn about after paying a consultancy that regularly swipes the credit card with MS.
Just reporting the US gov line without the slightest critical thinking, repeat the lies as much as possible. This is the typical newspeak propaganda much like during Operation Desert Storm. Not reporting the defences of the accused let alone giving it equal prominence. Just repeating the war propaganda/
> I think Huawei could have had an independent third party audit done but they haven't done that.
In fact they were audited by an "independent cyber security evaluation center set up in Oxford in 2010 in conjunction with the government" and found clean:
I tried my Ubuntu laptop but it doesn't work. The article mentioned CentOS is also safe. Is this actually as common as the article seems to suggest or is this just a pagefiller about something that only works if your carefully set your system up for intrusion?
> You will run into protectionist legislation that far exceeds what the US requires for entry
source? I think you just suspect that but it isn't true. At least here in Belgium you would probably start without all the issues that workers from poorer countries have to wade through.
recaptcha is also owned by google. Many companies nowadays do not allow to send direct emails so you have the use their forms. The forms are protected by recaptcha as are many of the "sign up" or forgot password functions. These companies are effectively enforcing a totalitarian google surveillance.
