Daily Tech News 25 November 2021

Top Story

  • Slashdot linked to an Axios (spit) story bewailing the failure of the US Senate to approve the nomination of a communist to head up the country's banking regulations. Not ever mentioning that she's a communist.

    A certain someone pointed out that she's a communist.

    And got voted up +5 Insightful.


  • Speaking of communists, China has suspended Tencent from updating existing apps or launching new ones. (South China Morning Post)

    Tencent is a holding company for a huge range of investments in both Chinese and foreign businesses - like Engulf and Devour, their motto is Our fingers are in everything. They run WeChat, which has 1.2 billion users, and own 20% of Universal Music, and a huge list of other stuff.

    They were one of the most valuable corporations in Asia at the start of the year, close to the trillion dollar mark, before Chairman Xi knifed the economy in the front.

    And now they are not permitted to fix bugs in their apps. I'm sure this will work out just fine for everyone.


  • Speaking of communists and tech companies getting banned, miracle of miracles the Department of Commerce has actually been doing its job. (The Register)

    Another 27 companies from China and Pakistan have been banned from doing business with the US - including one that has the exclusive distribution rights for HP servers in China.
