      you need to consider what going on behind the scenes here... not all is what it seems. If a foreign government had kidnapped your daughter, and you had been blocked from the market, when thousands of families of employees depend on you keeping the company going, and then being given access back into the market, you need to do some ducking and dodging to appease other corporations, such as google.
      Huawei most probably do have an OS, but have agreed under a deal to back peddle on it to protect google, so that they can get back to a functioning business worldwide. Unlike companies in the US, Huawei is owned by thousands of its employees, and its important that the company continues to run as a viable concern for them, and their families. There is no social support for the unemployed in china. The CEO and every employee there will want their CFO back!

      Lew Later , This is so weird bro, I just returned a car rental from Avis that I had for 16 days and it was a Subaru Outback, first time ever in my 47 years of life that I happened to drive that brand. It was pretty pretty nice and the sound system was pretty freaking nice too.

    Correlation does not necessarily imply causation. There are many confounding factors at play. For instance, many e-cigarette users are ex-smokers, therefore, at a higher risk of suffering a stroke than the general non-smoking population.

    Another study on vaping was also done by the royal college of physicians saying vaping is 95% safer the combustible cigarettes. Also its not 20% of high school students who use juul the study states they have tried vaping. So not entirely true. Id rather my kids vape then smoke. Also the stroke story isnt entirely true a little searching around disproves this story. It's a lot of miss information set up to protect tobacco profits and the MSA between all states and tobacco companies. Search some Master settlement Agreement on youtube and you will see what I mean.

    Hey Lew check this.
    The Tiandihui (Chinese: 天地會; pinyin: Tiān Dì Huì), literally the Society of the Heaven and the Earth, also called Hongmen 洪門 (the Vast Family), is a Chinese fraternal organisationand secretive folk religious sect such as the White Lotus Sect.[2] As the Tiandihui spread through different counties and provinces, it branched off into many groups and became known by many names, including theSanhehui. The Hongmen grouping is today more or less synonymous with the whole Tiandihui concept, although the title "Hongmen" is also claimed by some criminal groups.
    When the British ruled Hong Kong, all Chinese secret societies were seen as criminal threats and together defined as Triads, although the Hongmen might be said to have differed in its nature from others. The name of the "Three Harmonies Society" (the "Sanhehui" grouping of the Tiandihui) is in fact the source of the term "Triad" that has become synonymous with Chinese organised crime. Because of that heritage, the Tiandihui is sometimes controversial and is illegal in Hong Kong.

    Okay, here’s something about us saying things. Chinese generally would not say something that really stick to your face if they don’t have to. Mostly we speak lower position under this circumstances, when you did something nice for me.
    So, google got the ban lifted, thank you google, now my OS was ‘never intended to replace android’, you are the best. Makes you feel good about yourself, no? What about those million test phones? Nah it is nothing.... don’t worry about it.
    How much do you wanna bet if today the ban is back on, tomorrow the OS is replacing android on the Huawei phones?
    And you would be very naive to believe what they say, or they actually just stopped anything they were doing.
    Ask yourself this: if HM or Ark OS were really for ‘IoT’, what is the central control of that system? He human interface?

    Tesla Motors has been making cars for the past 10 years (if you count the Roadster) and the Model S came out in 2012 I believe... there should be enough data to draw some kind of conclusion. In my opinion, think they intentionally left out Tesla because it would seriously skew the results and make everyone look bad. From what I hear, most people who end up buying one regret not getting it sooner and say they're most likely going to buy another come the next car purchase. Regardless would be cool to see some data on Tesla's brand loyalty compared to everyone else.

    Huawei's OS was also meant as a plan B to replace android. It was not plan A. It's up to the US whether they want to stop the cooperation and let Huawei take over their market slowly, or want to keep a significant market share. Huawei contributed a lot of development to android. Huawei developed a lot of key components for android. Lookup Huawei on XDA forum. If any company knows how android works, and could bring a competitor to the market that's even better, it's Huawei. And most importantly, more secure. No NSA backdoors.

    • Dennis Tienesen
      Dennis Tienesen 23 days ago

      If Huawei developed it, NSA stole it and dumped it on Apple and Samsung, then who's the copy cat? Did you ever look into what Snowden exposed? The NSA had access to Huawei's development. The whole world used insecure US products, not Huawei products. Huawei stealing IP makes no sense. That's an overconfident confessing catch-me-if-you-can bully bluff tactic from the US. And they have been caught. Enough said. You're too stupid to understand anyway 😂

      Even if the Chinese government helped Huawei (which i doubt), it would only be fair. All of Huawei's competitors from the US had help from the government. The US government (NSA) even stole a lot of technology from Huawei. Ren Zhengfei read the book The American Trap. It's very plausible he planned it all himself. I don't see how i screwed myself? You screwed yourself for sure 😘

    So many defending Huawei here.. look it’s pretty simple, if you believe Huawei changed their minds on this OS because they saw more android availability, then you should want google to call their bluff and pull android so we can finally get this Huawei OS. It’s like people here are happier to live in a fantasy land where we don’t have to actually see this OS so we can assume it woulda been way better than anything else or there.. or maybe they will comment “it’s probably gonna release in a few more months”.. yeah we’ll see but this speculation ship is taking on a lot of water now, just let it sink already.

      ​@Merc399 - You said they could replace android, to which I said they're not replacing android, because they are still using android. Does you tiny brain not understand that?? Whether it is from the ground up or not it doesn't matter. The point is, they're still using AOSP (*Android* Open Software Project). It's even in the name of the software they're using. So they're not replacing it. They just using it and tweaking android and calling it something else. truly are a moron aren't you? God...I hope you don't procreate, because we don't need anymore idiots in this world.

    Here's the thing many people fail to understand, before the US ban on Huawei using Google's Android platform, there was never a 'need' for a new OS but a 'want' and the world had relinquished the lead to iOS & Google's version of Android. Now things have dramatically changed. Companies and countries that rely on the global supply chain to do business have awoken to a new reality; The US government has weaponized our tech companies and could be used on anyone during trade or any other disputes. So the question of an alternative Android OS is a question of 'when' and not 'if', it's coming one way or another.

      That was back when the smartphone market was in its infancy. Things were changing constantly. Now the market is mature, there's no reason for them to make a IOT OS, if they intended to use it for mobile. Not that they can't change it to a mobile OS. But it surely indicates they are not nearly as ready as we thought they were.

      Yeah, or maybe the most simple explanation is the most correct and that is that they were backed into a corner over the google ban announcement and decided their only move was to claim to have some way more powerful OS to freak google out into letting them continue to use android.

    This is probably not a technical issue but a trade issue. I believe that Huawei has or is very close to having its own OS. They have the power to do so and as reported they have been working on it for seven years.
    The sudden commitment to Google is probably more due to progress in trade negotiations, not a technological issue.
    Huawei has been aware of this possibility for a long time and them not having prepared for this day would surprise me.
    What company of Huawei's size wouldn't have a plan B?

    • Jari Lahdenpera
      Jari Lahdenpera 25 days ago

      @Tory - I agree that China is not ready to be self sufficient at the moment, but "forever" is a long time and see what China has done with infrastructure projects. From zip to 20,000 mi (or 2/3 of the world) of high speed rail in less than 20 years etc. I don't think that it is a question of "now" but a question of the next 5 - 10 years.
      If the US turns out to be a permanent obstacle to China's technological advance, I'm sure that China will be able to catch up in a rapid pace.
      It is not necessarily that China wants to be completely independent of the US, but if forced to do it, I believe that it can.
      5 - 10 years is a short time in Chinese history and planning.

    • Tory
      Tory 25 days ago +1

      Jari Lahdenpera interesting theory. Occam’s razor would suggest that it was actually just posturing over googles temporary ban on Huawei. Similarly to Huawei posturing that they could continue manufacturing their products using all Chinese semiconductors when it’s common knowledge that their semiconductor industry has not fully caught up to the USAs so it would have been very doubtful they could live up to that promise. If you doubt what I am saying about China’s semi conductor industry you can go do some simple research and see what I mean, the vast majority of FPGAs ASICs and ARM processors are produced by USA companies, China doesn’t have the means to produce their own yet despite over a decade of trying to.

    my guess, Huawei is truly have its own's OS but it's for their 5G servers. it's never intended to replace Andriod, it's to replace Linux in order to monopoly the 5G market. it's not surprise it run 60% faster than Andriod if it's main competition is Linux

    You should review the two phones produced by ASUS known as the "ASUS ROG" and the "ASUS ROG II". The specs on the second phone are crazy and pose a real threat to the Razer Phone 2. However price for the phone has nothing on the Razer Phone 2, for the second iteration of the second ASUS phone, coming in at roughly $1000 and I believe $800-$900 for the first version.

    The flying car, eh?
    Why do cars get better fuel mileage on the highway? The air going over the car;
    dashes under the car: causing lift!!! You already have the keys to the flying car!
    Moreover; what is the only part of the car that is not controlled by the car's computer:
    THE BODY OF THE CAR!!! Note: a SUV has radical body-roll that challenges the tacky-
    factor! Exceeding the tacky-factor, in a turn, causes the vehicle to leave the pavement
    spinning IN THE AIR...!!! SPOIL THE SPOILER! Mount the SPOILED SPOILER on
    VERTICAL STABILIZERS. Note: the body of the car is the same as the fuselage of the air-
    craft: passengers and cargo compartment.
    The driver wants to "bank" into a turn by being able to control the horizontal and vertical
    stabilizers that should be placed on the front and center and back of the body of the car.
    BE CAREFUL because this configuration will also allow for long leaps; so stay close to the
    pavement allowing the power tires to land first!
    Expect exceptional improvement in fuel economy! This configuration cools the tires and the
    suspension system. Keep the tires on the pavement because landing could cause troubles.
    The factory then adds hydraulics to lift the body from the "power-frame" that stays on the
    pavement and allows the body of the car to sustain leaps allowing for: layers of traffic, as well!
    Do it Yourself! DIY! THE TETHERED FLYING CAR! E's Power Company.

      No. Apple was the first with a mobile OS. Android came after iOS. These two OS's have become the biggest. It is hard to make an own OS, because you cannot get developers to make apps for your own OS, if it is not that popular yet. You can somehow use Android apps on your own OS, but that means you still need android and google to survive in this mobile world.
