They have evidence what these companies have done. Though they are still letting them to run their operations. Exception is just for Huawei. and this is just based on no real fact, only on doubt and fear.

Thank goodness there's still some of us left that set the bar high for our privacy contrary to others' willingness to have their lives monitored/controlled by third parties instead of themselves lol. How sad that puppets are just ever more present by the day while big brains degraded and or exploited.

Their open transparency in this regard is definitely not to their benefit and if they tried this with me they'd see double fingers with me walking out the door!

.alpha, 07 Oct 2020China was granted more patents at WIPO than any other count... morePatents that are given in west. China has no laws against intelligence theft, hence nobody, not even apple can sue a chinese company in China or anywhere else where their is no law against this kind of theft. Well, contrafit will allways pass borders but for sure not legaly. Anyway, when chinaware cross borders legaly, after literally robbing technology, they had to do something about their clone habbits, so they started to look more serious, but that does not hide the fact that they were just a bunch knockoff'ers, using crappy parts and selling for cheap. So yeah, the straight up lies you talk about are mostly your lack of knowlege.

1. First of all why aren't all 4 company logos in the headline picture but Mark Zuckerberg in the spotlight?

What kind of editor allows this...

2. " A panel of US House of Representatives established earlier today that four major technology companies are abusing their market power to destroy rivals and force small businesses to their knees in the name of profit. "

Since when does the US and its house of reps give a hoot about small businesses, lol?

3. " The panel suggested these companies should be restructured but did not reveal whether a specific company should be broken up "

Hey " panel ", how about you all take a look in the mirror yourselves first, huh? since y'all ain't angels either...

4. described “dozens of instances where companies misused their power”. It also revealed how companies did everything they could to dominate over competitors in order to control large portions of the internet.

...and the US with the house of reps never " misused their power " right???

Give me a break.........

The system we live in is all about power and control so spare us all from your wannabe prudent nonsense, house of reps.

  • Yaa

Who cares, other than investors really ;)
Those giants will pay some fines and all those small businesses will go bust anyway.
For a long time I only buy local stuff(no asian imports) and yes that it might be more expensive, but at least it is to size and it lasts 3 times longer :)

Said companies are going to eventually collapse because the people that run them are, well, people and people make bad decisions. Some one up the or down the chain is going to make a bad call it's just a matter of time, it could be decades it could be a couple years a certain thing is that entropy will catch up.

Stock splits, banning competitors, IP rights, etc can protect the capitalists only so far. Rest of the world is ready to jump the USA bully tech companies if they try milk the consumers with boring average stuff at ransom prices
