“The United States is an unreliable country that cannot be trusted” – new sanctions will affect both China and the United States

Published

After the election of a new US president, there were hopes that the administration of President Joe Biden could make a difference between the US and China. However, Biden’s actions confirm that relations between the countries are unlikely to improve.

This week, the US imposed stricter conditions on some companies that previously received export licenses to do business with Chinese smartphone maker Huawei. Huawei’s suppliers have already been informed of the changes to their previously approved licenses to supply Huawei products. These changes make it difficult for the Chinese company to supply components. The administration also imposes new restrictions on components that are used in or with 5G devices.

In response to these actions, the Chinese government condemned Joe Biden’s position. According to China, no one can trust the United States in the modern world. Further quote: “The United States is an unreliable country that cannot be trusted.”

Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian says there is no winner in such a fight. According to him, the new sanctions will affect both China and the United States.

This will seriously undermine technological and trade relations between the two countries and the world as a whole, it will disrupt global production and supply chains. The US must immediately end its crackdown on Chinese companies and treat Chinese companies in a fair and non-discriminatory manner.

Vodafone is suing the UK over a contract to develop a hacker-proof communication line

Published

The company considers it unfair that the contract was awarded to Fujitsu, although both bidders did not meet the requirements.

Mobile operator Vodafone filed in court against the UK government after losing a tender to develop a hacker-proof communications system, in which the Japanese company Fujitsu also took part.

Although both bidders were found to have failed to meet the government’s minimum requirements, Vodafone believes Fujitsu was unfairly awarded a £ 184m ($ 254m) contract to improve the communications system used by 532 British embassies and other agencies.

The Echo 2 project aims to provide secure communications for the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, employees and agents in over 170 countries.

According to the government, the current communications system operated by Vodafone is “outdated” and poses a risk to national security.

Vodafone went to court after Cable & Wireless, acquired by the operator in 2012, lost its long-term contract for the Echo 1.

“We do not believe that the procurement process was carried out correctly. The contracting authority itself admitted that the Fujitsu Solution was ‘not fit for purpose,’ said a Vodafone spokesman.

According to foreign ministry lawyers, Fujitsu’s proposal had problems with two requirements, but generally met the terms of the tender. Fujitsu representatives did not comment on the situation.

The trial in this case is scheduled for January 2022. The court allowed the UK government to enter into a “conditional contract” with Fujitsu. The details of the contract were not disclosed due to security concerns.

As mentioned several times, the main difference between this device and the Series 6 is the enlarged display. Disassembling iFixit revealed that the watch uses an OLED panel with an integrated touchscreen (on-cell touch), this technology debuted in the iPhone 13.

According to experts, this is an unusual approach for Apple, which usually prefers to experiment with new screen technologies on watches, and then implement them on smartphones – as happened with OLED, variable refresh rate and the function of “always on” screen.

IFixit partnered with three former Apple engineers to disassemble the Apple Watch Series 7. As they noted, it was the new display that could cause delays in production and force the company to release the device later than it would like.

When Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 7 in September, it didn’t announce a specific release date. Former Apple engineers said this is usually indicative of delays, and the most likely cause is a manufacturing glitch caused by watch displays. They explained, “The screens have some of the most complex supply chains and assembly processes in the industry.”

The iFixit experts also found that the Apple Watch Series 7 has a larger battery compared to its predecessor. However, this did not lead to an increase in battery life, since the larger screen consumes more power.
