Huawei employees reportedly worked on Chinese military research projects

first_imgHuawei is a lot more than just the phones that bear its name. Angela Lang/CNET Huawei workers have reportedly collaborated with China’s military on at least 10 research projects without the company’s knowledge. Employees of the embattled Chinese telecommunications equipment maker worked with parts of the People’s Liberation Army on projects linked to areas such as artificial intelligence and radio communications over the past decade, Bloomberg reported Wednesday.One such project with the Central Military Commission’s investigative branch focused on classifying emotions in online video comments, while another with the National University of Defense Technology looked at gathering analyzing satellite images and coordinates, the report said.Huawei asserted in an emailed statement that it doesn’t have any R&D partnerships with PLA-affiliated institutions and isn’t aware of employees publishing research papers “in their individual capacity.” Chris Monroe/CNET $299 at Amazon See It Turo: Save $30 on any car rental Review • iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR Read Lenovo Smart Clock review Huawei,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

President Donald Trump also signed an executive order that essentially banned the company based on national security concerns that Huawei maintained close ties with the Chinese government.In February, Huawei founder and president Ren Zhengfei dismissed allegations that his company’s products were being used to spy for China through built-in backdoors allowing intelligence agents to access data, the main reason for the long-running US ban on Huawei networking equipment.First published at 3:22 a.m. PT.Updated at 3:55 a.m. PT: Adds more detail.

Sarah Tew/CNET Sarah Tew/CNET I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Comments Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price.
