These articles always miss the point that the OS is what matters and most are either Android fans of iPhone fans. https://twitter.com/cnetnews/status/1131523035402518529
One thing that confuses me about Huawei - people ask whether the PRC government owns it, as though that would mean it can use Huawei products for spying/control, but if the Chinese government asked any other Chinese company to insert XYZ, could they say no?
 
The US government can spy on anyone provided that they have a court order. China is the same without the court order.
Journalists like to start articles with real stories. This is a reasonable strategy to engage readers but frequently it is not a good strategy to portray society. When you read a story ask yourself, but how representative is this one case?

Also if they get lost anywhere, a park, a mall, an airport, I tell them to immediately look for a family (parents with kids) and tell them they are lost and give them our phone numbers (memorized), especially not to wait for anyone to come to them.
I love the Bay Area for many reasons but one of them is how to easy it is to pack for it. So informal. So unlike NYC or London. Will be in SF from tomorrow to Wed evening. Lost in a jungle of t-shirts.
I gave my kids a password. Maybe you should too. If anyone who my kids don't know asks them to follow, they will ask this person, what is the password? And if they don't know it they will shout for help.
Instead of making new rules so one kid in 1000 can go to the best universities, shouldn't we figure out ways to provide quality education for many more students?
In the USA alone 3 million kids turn 18 every year. Around the globe it's 60 million. But the number of spots at the top 20 universities in the world has remained mostly constant for the last 50 years, stuck at around 60k.
But since then US population and global population grew 40% and 75%. Moreover global gdp per capita also doubled. So now there are three times the number of applicants for the same 1200 spots at Columbia University.
But what makes it extremely hard to get to the best colleges is not quality of demand, it's supply. For example Columbia University where I studied has the same incoming class sizes since I was there in the 80s.
We are trying hard to make college admissions more fair https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/16/us/sat-adversity-score/index.html
