MacRumors awaits you!

But how can they look at criminally charging a Chinese citizen who works for a Chinese company that is doing business in China?
Does this mean that Saudi Arabia could demand my extradition for violating their Apostasy laws?
Could Russia demand my extradition for slandering Putin and his criminal regime?
The US has a beef with the company, but why would they have any jurisdiction for criminal charges?
lkrupp said:So how about import duties on Apple products imported into the United States? Would that encourage Apple to manufacture in the USA also? Harley Davidson announced it will move manufacturing overseas to avoid foreign tariffs. Why is it always a one way street for us in the U.S.? Foreign countries can level all sorts of taxes and tariffs to encourage manufacturing in within their borders. But let the U.S. try the same thing and all hell breaks loose. When we do it it’s a trade war. Canada, for example, levies a 250% tariff on milk imported from the U.S. for the express purpose of protecting its dairy farmers from vastly more efficient and productive American dairy farmers.
Again, why is it a one-way street?

The Chinese are hurting themselves.
Whenever this comes up, I point to Intel's years long, totally fucked up roadmap for 10nm, which looks to finally arrive in a broad way, this fall.
Whatever happens, I'm waiting for 10 nm. I suspect that Apple is as well.

US farmers are provided massive subsidies for agricultural water versus what you might pay in a single family urban household. Difference is price is somewhere between two and 3 orders of magnitude - no joke. Remember that next time you're shopping produce.
As an example, Las Vegas allocates/buys water when it is available and pumps it into its aquifers for future use. The problem is that the Colorado River Basin, the source of most of this water for Southern California, Southern Nevada, and Arizona, is suffering from snowpack shortages due to Climate Change, ie, the runoff isn't near historic averages.
What ends up happening, is that those farming operations are economically stressed by drought, some operations sell their water rights to Municipalities, and then continue with dry land agriculture or often enough, sell the land for development.
Pretty much describes agriculture in the Western States.

Maybe Ren is has enough awareness to understand how he brought this on himself and Huawei;
