That's my concern in this. Seizing his bank access seems punitive to me and he hasn't been found guilty of anything. The alleged offenses don't even seem to warrant that action.
I really hope his legal team can set some kind of precedent to keep a tighter leash on prosecution agencies.
These polls are getting more and more USA-centric. What if I was from Germany, Australia or China for example? Slashdot was always US centric, but now it is even more so. Disgusting. I miss nerdy news for nerds sake instead of the brain-dead "USA USA USA USA" flag waving that goes on here.
If I was eligable, I would not join the Alexander Arms, Alliant Techsystems, ArmaLite, Arsenal, Inc., Barrett Firearms Manufacturing, Boeing Defense, Space & Security, Bushmaster Firearms International, Caspian Arms Ltd, Charles Daly, Charter Arms, CheyTac, Colt's Manufacturing Company (CMC), Detonics, Federal Cartridge Company, General Dynamics, Henry Repeating Arms, Hi-Point Firearms, JP Enterprises Inc, Kahr Arms, Kel-Tec CNC Industries Inc, Kimber Manufacturing, Knight's Armament Company (KAC), Land Warfare Resources Corporation (LWRC), Les Baer, Lockheed Martin, Magnum Research Inc.

It seems a bit sick to join a group used to profit shareholders with the risk of my own life. Maybe if I was really poor I might join the lottery I guess, but only with the huge chance of losing a little money for the tiny chance of winning big.
War is only for profit these days and greed isn't enough for me to wish death on anyone, let alone myself. (I'm not even Christian, but I wonder if there are any real Christians in the US of A?)
Note the article says ARM *server* processors. In that market, GPUs are totally irrelevant, power usage is secondary to performance, and price of the CPU is a distant third.
That is as has been, but I'm wondering if this is not a strategic move on their part. Perhaps They are thinking of large clusters of low power ARM cores that kick in as the workload demands with some kind of clever way of sharing resources (Freedom Fabric?). With the global political landscape the way it is, that could be an important point of difference.
Reducing energy consumption is now the "in thing" and will continue to grow in purchasing decisions as financial incentives to reduce carbon emissions grow. If a server can be run using a single voltage PSU instead of needing different voltage on different rails, there are likely to be energy savings over x86. If that server can idle at less than a Watt and then ramp up in small increments as demand requires, that might also yield an overall advantage.
Sure, for serious continuous load applications, it's probably not the best, but for a lot of cloud type applications I can see this as being useful for renewable energy supplied server farms.
I'm just speculating of course, and I fully agree GPUs are irrelevant, but I think the idea that power usage is always secondary to performance has reached it's use by date.
How did you test that 10,000 line java application so that you knew your refactor didn't cause regressions or new bugs?
I looked at the business problem and re-wrote the entire thing from scratch. It took a week and ended up being a couple of hundred lines of code with ~15 classes. Solved exactly the same business problem with better reliability and performance which was what I was hired for. Seriously could anyone be bothered unraveling that much spaghetti just to figure out wtf is going on? I re-used some snippets, but most of it I threw away.
The end result meant that a single instance of the application could do what 7 instances were needed for previously, it allowed new network protocols to be quickly developed as plug-ins rather than being locked into a single protocol and it had indefinite uptime instead of needing to be restarted daily. That's satisfying stuff right there.
This is my concern. Why is the Federal Government singling out Huawei and not subjecting everyone to this scrutiny?
I have a simple idea. Why not make it a condition of purchase that all software/firmware/hardware design be fully and publicly disclosed by all potential vendors and crowd source the security checks? (Hey I know it will never happen but I'm allowed to have my Utopian dream on a Thursday morning)
