China's Huawei Woos Tech World With $1.5 Billion and 5G Secrets
(Bloomberg) -- Huawei Technologies Co. is offering up its most valuable 5G secrets and $1.5 billion to software developers, courting the global tech community at a time the U.S. is heightening scrutiny of the Chinese giant.China's largest technology company aims to ramp up investment in its developer program over the next five years, Deputy Chairman Ken Hu told attendees at an annual conference. That effort is gaining urgency with Huawei in danger of losing access to American circuity and code, including the Google software it needs to run the world's No. 2 mobile device business.Huawei is accelerating its outreach after the Trump administration imposed sanctions on the sale of U.S. technology, encouraging allies to cut ties with a Chinese company it accuses of aiding Beijing in espionage. In response, Huawei offered to sell a license to its vaunted fifth-generation wireless technology -- needed to drive future modern economies -- to create a viable competitor and prove its gear is free of security loopholes."There are a lot of concerns over Huawei's 5G solutions. We believe those concerns are groundless," Hu told reporters in Shanghai. "By allowing others to acquire these technologies via commercial methods, it will help reduce the concerns."China's perceived lead in 5G is at the heart of President Donald Trump's campaign to contain the country's rise. Already, Huawei has inked more than 60 commercial contracts to build the wireless standard globally, Hu said. China itself is ready to finish the first phase of

What's in the latest Chrome update? No EVs, that's what
Google last week updated Chrome to version 77, patching 52 security flaws, offering tab sharing and dumping an address bar indicator that the destination site was using more expensive digital certificates.

The company paid out $34,500 in bug bounties to the researchers who reported some of those vulnerabilities. Eight of the flaws were ranked "High," the second-most-serious category in Google's four-step ratings, and one was marked with rarely-used top-most "Critical." The latter was submitted to Google by a security researcher with Qihoo 360, a company based in the People's Republic of China that distributes a browser by the same name. (The Qihoo 360 browser relies on the same Chromium-developed technologies as does Chrome.)

Edge embraces Chrome's kill-Flash timetable
Microsoft now says the new "full-Chromium" Edge will use the same kill-Flash calendar as Google's Chrome, the vastly more popular browser that also relies on Chromium.

Earlier, Microsoft had created its own timetable for purging the media player software, which Adobe will retire at the end of 2020. But once Microsoft decided to discard homegrown browser technologies for those crafted by the Google-dominated Chromium open-source project, the company was expected to fall in line with its rival.

[ Related: Get serious about privacy with the Epic, Brave and Tor browsers ] "In the next version of Microsoft Edge (built on Chromium), we will continue to retire Flash in the same timeframe as other Chromium-based browsers," Colleen Williams, a senior program manager on the Edge team, wrote last week in a post to a company blog.
