  • Even though I found something worth voting for this time, the new products poll still lacks the "Meh..." option.

  • I will never purchase Huawei equipment.  I will quit before pulling the trigger and purchasing Huawei.   If I find it in my network, I'm tearing it out, taking it out back, and going Office Space on it.   I do not trust Huawei at all.   Here is some evidence as to why:

    Huawei claims to be employee-owned, but the Chinese people do not have a say as to what they can believe in or what their opinion is.   Its whatever the government tells you it is.   Therefore, if the Chinese government wants you to do something in your products, you do it and don't ask questions about it.   It is also rational to believe that Huawei would therefore put in backdoors in all of their products that will "phone home" so that the Chinese have a way into private and enterprise networks when they see fit, and the traffic to you would look absolutely normal.

    Do I need my tin foil hat?

    Maybe, but fairly easy to see. just put something from them in a position on your network where you can see what it's sending out.  The Chinese can't visit something that they don't know exists, so as per your post, the device would need to phone home to let them know hey I'm over here.  If you don't catch a call home with something monitoring network packets, then I'd say you need to start investing in the foil industry ;)  Of course the same could be said of American products that have their shipments 'intercepted' by the NSA so that they can be tweaked. http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2014/05/photos-of-an-nsa-upgrade-factory-show-cisco-router-gettin...Opens a new window

  • I was excited about the Surface clone until I saw the price is still a bit too high.

    Tesla GPUs are definitely the hot topic. Excited. :D

  • The majority of IT equipment is made in China these days, even if it's sold under a Western brand name. There are also sources in Vietnam, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong if you prefer, though.
