I had a Dell vendor try to push that made up bull**** a while back when they called my office. I'd mentioned that I like Supermicro server gear. It was kind of awkward with the conversation going something like, "Yeah...I'm pretty sure that was all shown to be fake," "Well, uh, I'm pretty sure it wasn't." It was a short call.

It's each country's prerogative to act in their own security interests. It's your personal prerogative to think about how those actions affect you as a consumer.

If you think any of those alphabet government agencies don't do things just because they are "illegal" I have a bridge I think you would be interested in purchasing...

It may not have been real, but their loss of sales has been.

Keep your rickety bridge.



They know the laws have teeth in the United States and if they got caught the whole operation and the people involved would go up. Its easier to compromise hardware meant for others outside of the U.S. if they alter the shipment after it left the factory. Bugging anything on U.S. soil meant for American customers requires a warrant in order for any charges based on evidence is found.

The United States Government can't legally force a U.S. company to commit espionage. That's the difference between the United States and China. The Chinese government can force Huawei and others to spy on their behalf and there's nothing those companies can do about it.

A baseball, hotdog and apple pie made by Chevrolet would be very bad.

They'd probably try to style it "European" and put in so much chicory that your winky would die and fall off.


The components that were seen on the boards were jump-overs designed to make circuit pathing easier and leave interrupt testing points for board design testing. You COULD install a chip on them... or a transmitter or whatever.

just because you are not forward thinking is no reason to get insulting, calling it european.

Exactly. The PLA and the Communist Party *own* all of these companies in China, either directly or indirectly.
