Tim should asterisk all his comments on privacy with *except for China. China of course is a totalitarian communist nation where it’s citizens are surveilled 24 hours a day with no privacy from the Govt. Citizens are routinely disappeared and they currently have 1-2 million in concentration camps in the western provinces. But hey, they love our iPhones.
Understand that Huawei is more than a consumer handset company. Think Cisco and Ericsson. They make the backbone telecoms and network gear as well. The US Govt does not want the US or it’s allies to use Huawei where they can gain control of sensitive public (utility) and government/military networks. Imagine what gaining control of a power grid could do. Second, ever wonder how a company like Huawei could get so much traction so fast in a very technical and scientific industry? Well the government does not have IP theft on the agenda for nothing. The Chinese have very ambitious plans to project power and Huawei is one tool in their arsenal gain intelligence and control of potential adversary networks.
