Recode Daily: How companies are getting around Trump’s Huawei ban

Curated via Twitter from Recode’s twitter account….

As the Times’s Paul Mozur and Cecilia Kang write, “The deals underscore how difficult it is for the Trump administration to clamp down on companies that it considers a national security threat, like Huawei. ” Reportedly, the Trump administration is aware of the sales but has yet to respond.

The professional social networking site announced on Wednesday that it’s changing its Feed algorithm to surface posts that “cater to niche professional interests” as opposed to “elevating viral content,” according to Axios.

The FTC and local government agencies announced their latest crackdown on robocallers. “Operation Call It Quits,” as it’s been called, went after nearly a hundred companies and individuals in the past nine months.

The iPhone manufacturing giant told Axios it bought the company and is hiring dozens of Drive. ai engineers. Drive. ai, which makes equipment that can add self-driving capabilities to existing vehicles, was valued at $200 million two years ago.

Such companies are now facing fines and legal challenges. “Today’s joint effort shows that combatting this scourge remains a top priority for law enforcement agencies around the nation,” said Andrew Smith, the director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection.

Under new Trump administration regulations, US tech companies aren’t supposed to be selling products to Huawei.

Chipmakers like Intel and Micron have reportedly found a workaround to the recent ban on US firms selling electronics to the Chinese telecom giant Huawei, according to the New York Times’s sources.

It’s the latest example of a social media company tweaking how it surfaces content in an attempt to encourage better user behavior.
