Growing backlash in China against A.I. and facial recognition


China’s seemingly unfettered push into facial recognition is getting some high-level pushback. Face-swapping app Zao went viral last weekend, but it subsequently triggered a backlash from media — both state-run and private — over the apparent lack of data privacy protections. The app also stirred controversy as it allows users to upload photos of themselves … Continue reading

Canada’s Justin Trudeau sharpens criticism of China in Huawei spat


Canadian PM Justin Trudeau has accused Beijing of using “pressure tactics” to try to secure the release of a senior Huawei executive being held in Canada. Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor were detained in China days after Meng Wanzhou was arrested at the request of US authorities. Mr Trudeau says that China is “using … Continue reading

Huawei’s new phone could be the first major hardware casualty of the US-China trade war


On a normal year, millions of Huawei fans anticipate the announcement of the company’s new smartphones. But 2019 is not a normal year. In May 2019, Huawei was placed on a US trade blacklist, preventing US companies from doing business with Huawei without permission from the US government. As a result, Huawei cannot use Google’s … Continue reading

Australia snubbed China’s Huawei and completed its undersea cable project to bring high-speed internet to Pacific Islands


Australia has completed the laying of undersea cables for its high-speed internet project in the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea, a snub to Chinese tech giant Huawei, which had previously competed for the deal. Australia on Wednesday laid the final piece of cable as part of its $A137 million ($US92.5 million) infrastructure effort, known … Continue reading

Huawei employees admit links to China’s military and intelligence, British report claims


Throughout the conflict between Washington and Huawei, a central theme has been the alleged connections between the company and state defense and intelligence agencies in China. The theory goes that the company has links and is obliged, under Chinese national security legislation, to collaborate with the state when asked to do so—and, where the company … Continue reading

Africanews’ June 6 article “Why Africa will choose Beijing in ongoing US-China trade war” provides valuable information to support my May 22 comment here that Africans have a decisive role in shaping Huawei’s global future. “… Much of the continent’s telecommunications backbone has been built and is still being built by Huawei. Should Huawei get … Continue reading

Cadence Column: Asia, July 1, 2019


The Korean DMZ is the hottest new place to socialize! Dear Leaders charge to the border to shake hands. Presidents line up early to get a good spot. Few diplomatic maneuvers or promises on trade can compete with the political electricity and friendship found at the one border in Asia that has no military. Trump’s … Continue reading

Huawei’s global future? Africans have a decisive role


After being cut off by service providers like Google and hardware suppliers including Intel, Qualcomm and Xilinx, Huawei’s future in the OECD countries is definitely dim. Populous Asian countries like India, Indonesia and the Philippines, with sizable markets, will probably hold on for a while to see what is going to happen next. As the … Continue reading

Of course China wanted to “re-negotiate”. Chinese culture, whether in government or business, seeks to sign a contract first, then negotiate the terms after. In America it’s called “reneging”. In China is called “that strange, silly, sign a contract game the Americans require that makes no sense”. Trump has known that since he had his … Continue reading

Google’s negligence with Taiwanese military secrets certainly put Taiwan on the map—and it may list Google among the utilities. Being made into a public utility by force is a mild settlement for de facto espionage. Taiwanese military tech is also growing. At an expo in Abu Dhabi, Taiwan hopes to sell its own tech to … Continue reading

Everyone finally agrees China can’t be allowed to take over the world


Oh my, how times have changed. Huawei executives doing the perp walk. American universities shuttering Confucius Centers. Voters in the Maldives, Sri Lanka and elsewhere rejecting leaders who have cozied up to China. Malaysia and others demanding better deals from Beijing or otherwise trying to dig their way out of the Chinese debt trap. The … Continue reading

Cadence of Conflict: Asia, January 28, 2019


The West ramped up rhetoric against China this past week. Even George “Socialist” Soros trashed the Chinese government, yet tried to court favor with the Chinese people. Such an attempt aims to divide government and people. Opinion pieces from renowned news outlets openly accuse China of aggression. We did not see such a harsh tone … Continue reading

China is losing the trade war in nearly every way


China is still the world’s No. 2 economy and is still the monster of emerging markets, but regardless of those bonafides, Xi Jinping’s country is losing the trade war in nearly every way imaginable. The arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou in Canada last month for breaking U.S. sanctions law, followed by the firing of … Continue reading

China detains two Canadians with remark and in the wake of a single Huawei executive’s arrest. Given the surfacing connections the executive’s family had to Mao, China likely views the value of arrested people as equally balanced; the West merely views China as having committed three criminal acts. Huawei has gotten into more and more … Continue reading

While China would attempt to send the US out of its backyard by shocking the US with an invasion of Taiwan, that motive in itself would not be enough to push China to war. Beijing believes that controlling more territory is the solution to current problems with its own territory. In urban terms, it would … Continue reading

As the 5G race matters, arresting Huawei’s Meng Wanzhou is just a pawn move


The CNN provides a background report on the arrest of Meng Wanzhou, the CFO of Huawei. A web link there brings you back to a Reuters report dated Jan 31, 2013: “London (Reuter) — A Hong Kong-based firm that attempted to sell embargoed HP computer equipment to Iran … has much closer ties to China’s … Continue reading

The “Huawei arrest” sends yet another a irritatingly mixed message to China. China believes that a “strong response” concerning Taiwan will convince the US to back away from support for Taiwan. Conveniently for China, the recent provincial elections in Taiwan seem encouraging and Beijing has reached out to Taiwanese cities that just elected pro-Beijing party … Continue reading

African selfies and Chinese adaptation


Transsion, a little known Chinese smartphone manufacturer, outsells Samsung and Huawei in Africa by grapping 40 percent of the market with its two brands — Tecno and itel, here.

‘Improving’ US mobile infrastructure may allow Chinese players to join US market


A Huawei executive revealed that it could now possibly collaborate with Tier One US carriers again after regulations on security concerns have eased and improved.

China’s protectionism intensifies in defiance of WTO rules: world’s leading technology brands dropped from approved state purchase lists


China has dropped some of the world’s leading technology brands from its approved state purchase lists, while approving thousands more locally made products, in what some say is a response to revelations of widespread Western cybersurveillance. Others put the shift down to a protectionist impulse to shield China’s domestic technology industry from competition. Chief casualty … Continue reading

China condemns US “protectionist methods” over cyber espionage fears


China‘s Commerce Ministry has condemned a $1.1-trillion spending bill passed by the U.S. Congress last week over clauses that limit technological purchases from the Asian giant, saying they clash with the principles of fair trade.

China’s Huawei row shines light on East-West culture clash


US security fears over two China telecom firms have spotlighted Western suspicions that Chinese companies are state-influenced, a culture clash analysts say could loom larger as the country’s businesses look overseas.

Huawei gears up to rival Cisco in US


Huawei‘s head of North America, John Roese, said his company was more than ready to take on larger rival Cisco Systems but noted it would take some patience – and time. “The US is by far our most complex market … for us our entrance into the US is similar to a western company entering … Continue reading
