In the days since the US put Huawei on an “entities list” and prohibited US companies from doing business with the Chinese tech company, the implications have kept piling up.

A number of companies based outside the US have ceased working with Huawei, including UK-based chip designer Arm since the company uses some technology developed in the US. Now the SD Association has followed suit, which means future Huawei devices may not be able to include SD cards. And several standards-setting bodies have put their relationships with Huawei on hold too, which could limit the company’s influence moving forward if nothing changes.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. I wonder how the rest of the world is interpreting this trade war and the current situation with Huawei. Will this result in a long term effort of non-US countries gradually trying to depend less on the US and weakening the US economically and politically? Will this make the US a more dominant world power? Will something else end up happening?

    This is definitely going to be taught in US history classes in the future.

  2. Honestly the SD association/huawei news is the least impactful of Huawei related news so far. Ever since they switched to Nano SD I have basically treated their phones as NOT having expandable storage.

  3. Maybe amazon is just making an excuse to train an algorithm to recognize vocal emotional expressions, since the software would be more profitable when loaded onto everything with a microphone.
