US-China tensions escalate as top US tech companies reportedly cut off business with Huawei

Shares of Google parent company Alphabet were up 1 percent Tuesday afternoon, at $1,156.43.

Nevertheless, Huawei has released a statement that says it will still support current Huawei and Honor phones with security patches and after sale services.

Thanks to a report from Caijing, we now know that Huawei's been developing its own operating system as an alternative to Android since as far back as 2012. "We are discussing emergency relief measures". Not only would this do severe damage to the desirability of Huawei Android smartphones sold outside of China, but would have caused major disruption to any United States companies that rely on working with Huawei.

Trump's broadside will cause pain for USA companies that count on Huawei as a steady customer, but it poses an existential threat to Huawei.

"Now it is happening to Huawei".

Ford announces more job cuts as company 'redesign' continues
Today Ford Motor Co. announced that 7,000 employees around the company will lose their jobs as part of an organizational revamp. The layoffs included closure of five factories in the US and Canada and cuts of another 8,000 white-collar workers worldwide.

Ren put up a strong front on Tuesday, reiterating claims the restrictions will not hurt Huawei's prospects and no other company will be able to catch up with Huawei in 5G technology in the next two to three years.

Google will launch software updates and other tasks during the 90-day period.

"The Temporary General License grants operators time to make other arrangements and (gives) the Department space to determine the appropriate long term measures for Americans and foreign telecommunications providers that now rely on Huawei equipment for critical services", said Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross.

But the Commerce Department on Monday issued a 90-day reprieve on the ban on the transfer of technology by allowing temporary licences.

The U.S. department of Commerce had already declared Huawei to be one of these countries several days before the order was signed. The U.S. has announced new tariffs on European and Chinese goods several times, only to see them retaliate with tariffs on U.S. goods. "We're a football in between this trade war", he told the BBC.

Julian Edelman Getting Two-Year Contract Extension From Patriots
Since breaking out for his first 1,000-yard campaign in 2013, Edelman has been a staple of the Patriots' passing game. That postseason, he produced back-to-back 100-yard games to drive New England to Super Bowl LI against the Falcons.

As China looks to respond to President Donald Trump's move against Huawei, Apple makes a prominent potential target for retaliation.

The move came amid an escalating dispute over trade practices between the United States and China.

"This is not just an attack against Huawei", a company representative told Reuters. But regulators have an array of tools including tax and safety inspections that can hamper a company with no official acknowledgement it is targeted. Huawei phones have been removed from the Android Q Beta page, so the company presumably has been kicked out of the Android Q early-access program for manufacturers.

Asked how long Huawei may face hard times, Ren said: "You may need to ask Trump about this question, not me". According to the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation, US-based companies stand to lose $56.3 billion in export sales over five years from these sorts of restrictions, threatening as many as 74 000 US jobs.
