This was done so china wont do the same with Apple and Qualcomm. Trump is just fixing his mess ups so it doesn't come back and bite us in the butt.
Anonymous, 14 May 2018Trump cares about Chinese workers? Xi is like, "One day, somebody is going to get hurt real bad"."Somebody. Not going to say who."
Anonymous, 14 May 2018Well Trump is a clown, no surprise here.You are quite naive. They got what they wanted, now he can play around to show nice of himself.
ZolaIII, 14 May 2018So you think American iconic brand's do respect other people's IP? Think again. Imagination po... moreWhere did I say that? Read my post again, that's one thing. Secondly, Chinese never raised any concerns regarding American stealing their IP. Last, but not least - stick to the subject. PowerVR has contract with Apple, so they can do sh*t now. Only thing they can do, is not extending the contract in the future and it's something Apple's definitely prepared for. They certainly cannot ban Apple in China - Chinese authorities can. In fact, Chinese authorities keep making it harder to sell iPhones in China and Apple's sales in China keep peaking down, which is other reason why Trump does, what he does. We may find it entertaining, but Trump is doing what American taxpayers hired him for.
OK, since you don't really know what you're talking about, I'll finish this opinion exchange with you here.

Think again. Imagination power VR is now in Chinese hands, not only that they can ban Apple in China, cut their supply chain but also make demand that it stops selling worldwide all of it's products that infringement Imagination IP's.

Trump hope China will more cooperate in trade war dispute. If necessary, he will let Huawei entering US too. All alibi that Huawei spying is only part of bargaining strategy.
TBH forcing China to make there own hardware isn't good for US in a long run. As China have over billion more people in there country then USA ,there market is a lot bigger so USA needs that market and the more companies that buy hardware from USA the more money they get. But USA wants to control everyone. China isnt world wide war mongol like USA is. Or like Russia is. Largest population on the world and second is India and both dont shine for the world like they are war hungry or control hungry

China brought it to themselves. Everyone keeps complaining about how Chinese companies don't respect intellectual property and still other's ideas. Trump is the only one who's actually done something about it. He hit them where it hurt.
He doesn't really want to close all businesses US has with China (so he talks to them), he only wants them to start treating US seriously.
Did you see last Motor Show in Beijing? Look for some pictures and think about why are American companies pissed.
On the other hand - situation makes other countries realize, how dependent they are on electronics coming from US. They will put more money and effort in developing their own technologies and solution. It's a win-win situation.
This story has an epilogue & ZTE is small compared to both Apple and Qualcomm which could easily go it's path.
Anonymous, 14 May 2018I think you are the one who is clueless confusing president with his administration. Yeah, right. Keep telling yourself whatever you want to hear;)
"Last week, there were reports that ZTE has given additional material to the Bureau of Industry and Security of the US Commerce Department to have the ban lifted."
Was that “material” in dollars or in yen? ;)
