  • Apple boycott by Chinese firms supporting Huawei is escalating

    Personally, the faster Apple withdraws all manufacturing from China, and maybe even deliberately halts all sales, the better this will be! If Apple withdraws, and takes all their manufacturing jobs with them, let's see how long China will take to start begging them to come back!

    I'm sure that Chinese Companies and individuals will see their social scores increase by participating in these boycotts.

    The Five Eyes are aligned against Chinese Telecom equipment, and as they should be. There's no odds in a telecom infrastructure from an authoritarian government known for IP theft.

    If Apple gets beaten up in China, then I'm  guessing that China will no longer be the supply chain for Apple Products.

    The Five Eyes already has a lot Huawei gear. Nothing surprising in that. What is new is the US desperately trying to stop Huawei progress for technological and political reasons under the guise of security and doing so, so late in the day that the UK roll out of 5G could be put back by a year and cost a lot more. All without a shred of evidence.
    I'm not seeing the need for proof, no more than China would  by banning / eliminating U.S.telecom equipment. Were you aware that Huawei is providing AI hardware to the Chinese Government for upgrading its already intrusive network spying on its own citizens? 

    China has an authoritarian government, President for Life, and China is adamant about seizing the South China Sea per it's claims, which bodes ill for international trade. Given the rampant IP theft, and Chinese Hacking, I'm not seeing why democracies would risk using Huawei infrastructure.

    Great Britain is in the process of reevaluating Huawei equipment; the rest, including the U.S., have little in the way of Huawei equipment in place, and most of that will be removed or replaced.

    "In Australia, experts are also concerned about cyber-security attacks against our institutions and businesses emanating from China.

    For example, consider recent reports in this newspaper that China’s peak security agency directed a surge in cyber attacks on Australian companies over the past year; and that internet traffic heading for Australia was diverted to China for a six-day period.

    There's no suggestion Huawei is in anyway involved in these attacks. But the government's decision to ban it from Australia's 5G networks was certainly based on concerns about China.

    "A long history of cyber incidents shows cyber actors target Australia and Australians," Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Mitch Fifield said in their joint statement back in August without directly mentioning China.

    "The government considers that the involvement of vendors who are likely to be subject to
    extrajudicial directions from a foreign government that conflict with Australian law, may risk
    failure by the carrier to adequately protect a 5G network from unauthorised access or
    interference."

    In other words, the government was concerned that even if Huawei wasn't directly controlled by the Chinese government (the vendor has always denied that it is), under the country's laws it wouldn't be able to resist any demands made on it by Beijing."

    Huawei is not China. 
    Correction, they are FROM China, and as per Chinese law, as Tmay stated, they CANNOT refuse ANY order from the government, hence they're an integral part of the PRC government. Not to mention Huawei is a bunch of IP thieves, so their reputation is just as bad as most Chinese tech firms already.
    The US has already pressured AT&T and Verizon to pull out of commercial deals with Huawei. Who needs laws when you can leverage other options.
    l bet families of high ranking ATT and Verizon managers were threatened to be harmed/killed to get to the results the US gov-t wanted, right? Just like it would be in China, eh?  That is totally not a false equivalence fallacy here, that you have just made.... SMH

    Fixed.
    Nope. Huawei has denied this. Not directly or indirectly. Huawei says it complies with all the laws in force in the countries where it operates and data is stored for example, in the EU, on servers within the EU.

    One thing is China another is the rest of the world. When in China, do as the Chinese does. Comply with the law - just like Apple does.
    Not directly or indirectly? If the Chinese gov-t tells you to do something, YOU DO, if you live in China.
    But how does it "denied" anything that was said here? You literally have just confirmed that yourself, while disagreeing with the conclusions of "China says, you do" approach. This makes no sense... We know that China spies a lot. We know that some congressmen were briefed on the extent of the problem and that is case that they are trying to conduct not just routine spying but rather, they are trying to infiltrate as many networks as possible to get IP. Guess, how would you do that, if you have companies in China manufacturing NETWORK equipment? SMH

    Of course Huawei will deny it. What else can they do - say, yes, we altered all our equipment to accommodate wide-spread network info scooping  the Chinese government is trying to do? Now, please, keep buying out stuff.
    What are you smoking?

    There is nothing technological in their progress, other then how they steal IP. Huawei is simply one of the arms of the Chinese gov-t, when it comes to spying. And given the fact that they sold whole bunch of cheap routers to many country, they might have quite a reach. Having a compromised set of routers might just provide that backdoor the Chinese military need to "downloan" all the info in your company's network, without you even knowing/noticing it. Given the scope of IP theft that has been done by China, you don't really have a lot to defend Huawei (Chinise gov-t) with. Sorry. Benefit of the doubt does not work in this case, as we already know 1) what China is capable of 2) Chinese gov-t is going to a great length in defending Huawei. In fact, they even think Apple is guilty of the same as  Huawei is...hence their recent actions in regards to "discouraging" people from buying Apple products. I bet, that "recommendation" came directly from the govt.. That tells everything you need to know about the extent of their involvement and all the whys.

    OMG, is Foxconn telling its employees not to buy Apple products?  Don't their jobs depend on it?

    The Chinese  are hurting themselves.
    Foxconn is Taiwanese.

    Except that when its factory is located in China, they would have to follow Chinese laws (and "recommendations" from the Chinese gov-t as well)

    Do they not realize that Apple has nothing to do with this? It’s not like the CFO is all of a sudden gonna get released as a result. This is stupid if you ask me. 
    They are simply projecting.... and by doing that they do confirm that HW does have strong connections to the gov-t. In the case of China, that means that the fears of China using HW hardware for spying are not unfounded. On top of that, because China knows what HW actually is, they think that Apple is in the same position to the US gov-t like HW is to the Chinese gov-t.
