Huawei and ZTE ban appears to be due to nothing but "connected to government", with zero evidence that there is anything wrong with the tech. This is the same trade war that Trump started. Not using a less secure tech makes sense if it is less secure, but in this case the "less secure" thing about it appears to be political affiliation in nature only.
Would love to be wrong and for there to be a legitimate reason to ban this stuff other than "made in china" being the reason. But if there was a legitimate reason found, that news would be so sensational I'm pretty sure it would not escape the reporting, so this pretty much is just the US political leaders doing trade war things with China again.
Uhh well unlike Apple telling the FBI to go suck it, in China the government can tell any local business to do whatever they want at any time. So it is reasonable to consider it a security risk based on the many shady actions of China already committed.
I don't think Trump was on the right track by applying seemingly random tariffs, but China has gone essentially unpunished for rampant corporate / defense industry espionage for quite some time.

Probably one of the stupidest ideas on record. Only a few months to get effective results? Why not just castrate her BF. Dude is halfway there.
Why do you think it takes a few months to get effective results? Why is the dude half castrated? What?
Read the article and become self-aware. She literally says that it takes a few months for her ridiculous device to work.
Ah I forgot about this. Do you mean this? "The device only needs to be used every few months to keep the sperm inert and prevent eggs from being fertilized during sex."
That doesn't mean it takes a few months for it to work, that means the effect lasts a few months.
