Advertisement Supported by ByRaymond Zhong April 25, 2019 SHENZHEN, China — For one of the world’s largest technology companies, it should be a simple question: Who owns Huawei? As the Chinese smartphone and telecommunications equipment giant battles the United States government over whether it should be allowed to build the world’s mobile networks, the company has been going to great lengths to present itself as open, transparent and trustworthy.

After years of being told that it was a national security threat by U.S. lawmakers worried that the communist Chinese government will force the company to gather intelligence for it, Huawei has had enough. Unverified talk that its products contain back doors ready to be a conduit for secret information sent to Beijing, and watching as U.S. officials try to get allies not to use its 5G networking equipment has Huawei executives ready to fight. Rotating Chairman Guo Ping told CNBC today that the country is dragging its name and reputation through the mud because the U.S. can't compete with the company.If Guo is trying to win over U.S. officials, he is going about it the wrong way. The executive said that the U.S. has a "loser's attitude," which to President Donald Trump will be like a red flag waved in front of a bull.

Google has slowly ramped up its in-house chip-making efforts over the years. Those efforts substantially sped up in recent months, thanks to over a dozen new microchip engineer hires in Bengaluru, India. According to Reuters, Google hired at least 16 engineering veterans and four talent recruiters for its internal “gChips” team. As of this writing, there are four open positions in Bengaluru. In total, the gChips team could grow to 80 employees by the end of 2019.Reuters also reports that the gChips might be testing chip designs before sending off the final versions to manufacturers, according to two industry executives familiar with Google’s plans.

US prosectors unsealed a pair of indictments against Huawei on Monday, escalating the Trump administration's battle with the Chinese smartphone giant. One of the indictments also names Meng Wanzhou—Huawei's chief financial officer and the daughter of the company's founder—and accuses her and the company of selling US technology to Iran in violation of US sanctions laws. The other indictment charges Huawei with stealing cell phone testing technology from T-Mobile. And Huawei is accused of stealing the technology in the most literal sense: according to the indictment, a Huawei employee entered a T-Mobile testing lab, put a proprietary robot into his laptop bag, and walked out. The heist was the final step in Huawei's increasingly aggressive efforts to learn how T-Mobile's smartphone testing system works. US prosecutors argue that the two indictments reveal a culture of deception at the Chinese smartphone giant. "Huawei and its senior executives repeatedly refused to respect … [Read more...] about US indicts Huawei for stealing T-Mobile robot, selling US tech to Iran
