Huawei is pushing for a global leadership role in 5G, but American officials suspect that would help Beijing spy on Western governments and companies. “Huawei’s significant presence in 5G creates a new vector for possible cyber-espionage and malware,” Michael Wessel, a commissioner on the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission that advises Congress, s...

Prisoner in Vancouver: Huawei CFO Awaits Fate in Splendor

Then she’s off, largely free to roam the shops and restaurants within 100 square miles of Vancouver until her 11 p.m. curfew. Meng’s arrest at the behest of the U.S. -- which wants to extradite her on grounds she tricked banks into potentially violating Iran sanctions -- has sparked an unprecedented diplomatic row.

Geoengineering could solve our climate problems if anyone allowed it

This weekend, I finished reading Oliver Morton’s The Planet Remade (thanks to reader Eliot Peper for recommending it). Morton has a multitude of goals with the book, but there were two I think are deeply valuable. First, geoengineering is a plausible approach to solving our climate problems this century, and second, engineering the climate generates tough policy challenges, but also opportunities to make the planet more equitable. TechCrunch is experimenting with new content forms. This is a rou...

China’s Envoy Accuses Canada of ‘White Supremacy’ in Huawei Case

The envoy said Canada is employing a double standard in demanding the release of two men who were detained in China nine days after the arrest of Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou at the request of U.S. authorities. “It seems that, to some people, only Canadian citizens shall be treated in a humanitarian manner and their freedom deemed valuable, while Chinese people do not deserve that,” Lu Shaye wrote in an op-ed published in the Ottawa-based Hill Times newspaper on Wednesday.

Western Tech Is Ready to Name the Next Red Menace

Dell and HPE would benefit from Lenovo being mentioned in the same breath as Huawei, regardless of whether it poses a similar threat to the huge networking-equipment maker — or any threat at all. A series of Western acquisitions, including the Motorola phone brand in 2014, also makes it far less China-heavy.
