Huawei is in talks to sell part of its Honor smartphone unit

honor 30 pro plus review rear in hand

  • Huawei is reportedly in talks to sell off parts of its Honor unit.
  • It’s believed that Digital China, TCL, and Xiaomi are interested in the deal.

US sanctions against Huawei mean that the company’s smartphone business has suffered in a big way. Between its crippled in-house chipset division and the lack of Google support, it’s becoming increasingly tough for the firm to keep producing phones.

These troubles extend to its Honor sub-brand too, but Reuters now reports that Huawei is in talks to sell off parts of the Honor business in a deal potentially worth up to 25 billion yuan (~$3.7 billion).

The report, citing “people with knowledge of the matter,” alleges that Honor’s brand, research and development infrastructure, and associated supply chain management business could be sold under the deal. However, the newswire’s sources caution that this hasn’t been finalized yet.

It’s believed that Huawei will focus on higher-end

New WordPress tool automatically turns blog posts into tweetstorms

WordPress has introduced a new feature that automatically posts entire blogs as Twitter threads, complete with all text, images, videos and embeds. You can access the feature via the green Jetback icon on the top right of the edit post page, alongside existing options to share links to Facebook and other social networks.

WordPress argues the feature is “a great way to amplify your content,” by allowing posts to reach any Twitter followers that don’t follow a WordPress blog directly. Twitter threads also often end up being much more visible on the platform compared to single tweets, and the new feature allows followers to read a post’s contents without having to click through a link.

Game Trains Police To Get Facebook Data Fast

When a terrorist strikes, getting information fast from a tech giant can make the difference between police catching the suspects, or another attack taking place. That’s the premise of a new game created by Europol, the European body responsible for connecting the continent’s myriad policing agencies and helping them investigate major crimes.

Right now, police officers are often confused by the process. What data can they request from which provider? Can they retrieve any encrypted content from the likes of Apple or WhatsApp? What legal mechanisms should they be using? What’s the best language to use to ensure they get the information they want quickly?

Cope want data, from Facebook to TikTok

The game, exclusively shown to Forbes ahead of its release to law enforcement partners and their 4,500 officers on Wednesday, hopes to make sure police know the answers to those when an emergency happens. It looks much like

HCA Healthcare Returning $6 Billion In Federal Coronavirus Aid

It’s rare when a company returns federal money. It’s rarer still when that money amounts to billions of dollars. Yet that’s the situation with top U.S. hospital operator HCA Healthcare (NYSE:HCA), which aims to return gobs of government largesse from whence it came.

All told, HCA announced that it’s planning to return roughly $6 billion, $1.6 billion of which consists of federal COVID-19 grants and $4.4 billion in Medicare loans. Both were provided as part of the government’s Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) passed in the early stages of the current pandemic.

HCA benefited from the loans and grants bestowed upon operators of healthcare facilities to help keep them afloat.

The company will pay those funds back because it continues to thrive, even though many elective surgeries have been postponed or canceled in the face of the coronavirus.

Last week HCA published a “preview” of its Q3

Takeaway delivery company Just Eat says its orders have grown 43% in the UK after it added 800 McDonald’s restaurants and 300 Greggs outlets to its network.

The company also credited the impact of lockdown after it delivered 46 million UK orders between July and September.

It said more diners were working from home and avoiding outside contact.

The firm, which merged with Dutch rival Takeaway.com in February, expects to see more growth this autumn and winter.

The group also saw demand rise in markets like Germany, Canada and Australia, booking 151.4 million orders worldwide in the third quarter – a rise of 46%.

“Further lockdown restrictions across the continent and the UK should keep demand on the up,” said Neil Wilson, chief market analyst for Markets.com.

The report said the platforms gave no explanation for not showing the event in China, Apple’s second-largest market by revenue.

The iPhone 12 was later ranked the top

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War — How It’s Changing For The Cross-Play Beta Weekend

The first public beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War ran this past weekend on PS4, and now developer Treyarch has outlined some of the changes in the pipeline for the next beta. The second beta is a much bigger one, as it’s coming to Xbox One and PC as well, and there will be cross-platform multiplayer support.

Weekend 2 players can expect a series of changes, including the team deathmatch score limit rising from 75 to 100 “for better match pacing,” as well as a change to the Duster Stock attachment that will slow down sliding speed.

The cooldown on the Spy Plane scorestreak has been increased to lessen the experience of having too many of them in the sky at the same time from different players.

There have also been some general changes to improve the experience, such as join-in-progress now preventing players from joining a

Microsoft Scores Another Windows 10 ARM Success

I’m told there was an Apple event today. I’m told it was one of the biggest moments of its year. Yet the event was for this year’s tweak of the iPhone, not Apples’s big moment of innovation. That’s coming later this year, when Tim Cook’s team reveal a new MacBook that will be running on ARM-based architecture, rather than Intel. While some hand-picked developers have had access to a Developer Transition Kit, presumably under heavy NDA, the project has been shrouded in darkness, with only the occasional leak of online benchmarks and to-be-expected hyperbole from the geekerati.

It’s in stark contrast to Microsoft’s approach.

With far less pomp and circumstances, the Windows 10 on ARM project made
