Leaked ARM memo suggests Huawei's losing access to yet more essential technology
The hits keep coming for Huawei. Following the revocation of its license to use Google apps and the Play Store on its Android phones and a ban by several major chipmakers, including Intel, Broadcom, and Qualcomm, a leaked memo obtained by the BBC has revealed that ARM has ordered its employees to cease "all active contracts, support entitlements, and any pending engagements" with the beleaguered China-based tech giant.

While ARM is a UK-based company, its chip designs contain technology that originated in the U.S. and subsequently are believed to be subject to the Commerce Department's blanket ban. The memo says ARM employees are no longer able to "provide support, delivery technology (whether software, code, or other updates), engage in technical discussions, or otherwise discuss technical matters."

How Google's Huawei license ban could change Android and smartphones forever
A bad month has just gotten a whole lot worse for Huawei. According to a Reuters report and confirmed by the two companies, Google is preparing to cut off the China-based smartphone maker's Android license, preventing future Huawei phones (such as the upcoming Mate 30) from using the Play Store and Google's popular apps and services.

The bombshell comes just days after President Donald Trump signed an Executive Order barring U.S. companies from using telecommunications equipment made by firms that "pose a national security risk." While the order didn't single out Huawei, the Commerce Department simultaneously added Huawei to its Entity List, effectively banning the smartphone maker from buying parts and components from U.S. companies without explicit government approval.
