Huawei – Another Side of the Story

We covered this one earlier, so it’s only proper to give the other side of the story.

Farhad Manjoo, in Slate, says that whether a given piece of technology is dangerous is not determined by the nationality of the company that makes it.

As Manjoo puts it:

In reality, most devices are from everywhere. Your Android smartphone was designed in Korea, assembled in China, runs an operating system created in California, and works on a cellular carrier owned by a firm based in Germany. If you’re worried about a certain company’s connections to China, you should be worried about pretty much every company in the tech industry—they all have large operations there, and, as a result of those operations, they’ve all cut certain less-than-transparent deals with Chinese authorities.
