Huawei said to be frantically stockpiling phone parts before US ban

Huawei said to be frantically stockpiling phone parts before US ban

Huawei might be changing its story from defiance to one of defeat by this time next year if things don't start looking up for it. Whereas last year it stood proud and proclaimed it could still conquer the smartphone market despite US export bans, it is now silently and chaotically trying to get supplies it needs before time runs out in mid-September. But even then, Huawei could see its smartphone empire burn by 2021 unless things take a turn for the better.

Which pandemic pizza is your state’s favorite?

Which pandemic pizza is your state’s favorite?

A study was done to discover the top pizza provider since March of 2020. A ranking of preferred pizza brands in each state in the United States was conducted with specific emphasis on orders sent during the still-active global pandemic we're living in today. It would appear that most states prefer pizza with little or no human contact - shocker!

US tightens the noose on Huawei’s ability to make chips

US tightens the noose on Huawei’s ability to make chips

It seems that things are going from bad to worse for Huawei, now including its smartphone business. Not only has its temporary general license expired last week, the US government is now also issuing more restrictions that will practically cut off Huawei's ability to produce its own silicon for its smartphones.

The US Commerce Department just added 38 Huawei affiliates to the country's Entity List, extending the new rule it announced last May that prevented sales of semiconductor materials and parts to Huawei, directly or indirectly.

Huawei license expiration puts network operators, Android phones in limbo

Huawei license expiration puts network operators, Android phones in limbo

They say all good things come to an end and that's especially true with reprieves. Recent events, both related to the COVID-19 pandemic and TikTok, may have shoved Huawei out of the spotlight but the beleaguered Chinese company has once again come into focus and not in a good way. Huawei's license extension in the US has expired as of Thursday night and its customers both in the telecommunications and mobile markets are at a loss on how to proceed.

In more recent days, interest in the topic was also spurred by a comment about 'off-world vehicles not made on this Earth.'

HTC Desire 20 Pro is too familiar, save the price [UPDATE]

The HTC Desire 20 Pro looks a whole lot like a couple of other devices we've discussed this week. One's the Samsung Galaxy A51, the other is an LG smartphone that's coming closer to the end of the month. The HTC Desire 20 Pro doesn't look particularly different in any major way from most other multi-camera, punch-hole display, back-facing fingerprint sensor-having smartphone on the market today. But the price... is surprising, to be sure.

Twitter buying TikTok makes better sense but faces same problems

Twitter buying TikTok makes better sense but faces same problems

That the US government under President Trump wants to ban TikTok in the country is no surprise. That it wants TikTok to sell to a US company in order to escape that ban, a deal that includes giving the US Treasury some percentage, is not a shocker either. What was rather unexpected was that Microsoft is apparently so interested in buying up the popular short-video social network that CEO Satya Nadella personally talked with government officials about it. It turns out, Twitter is another prospective buyer and it might actually be a better fit for a TikTok owner. Presuming, of course, it could even buy it.

CDC face mask rules just got an update

CDC face mask rules just got an update

The CDC just updated their guidance for citizens of the United States during our modern global pandemic here in the year 2020. The update appeared on the 7th of August (earlier today) and included a few key points that've been clarified or straight up added to the mix that were not present before. To be clear, if you wear a mask over your nose, mouth, and chin, and your mask is simple but secure, you're probably not going to need to change anything about how you're handling the situation.
