Twitter is writing new rules when it could just enforce existing ones

Last August, as it inched toward banning Alex Jones from its platform, Twitter invited the New York Times to sit in on a meeting about why it was taking so long. It would later emerge that Jones had already violated the company’s rules at least seven times, but CEO Jack Dorsey still hesitated to pull the trigger. By the meeting’s end, Dorsey had instructed his underlings to create a new policy banning “dehumanizing speech.” The underlings spent the next year trying to figure out what that meant. A sweeping draft policy was posted in September. Today, the company unveiled the...

US to ease Huawei trade restrictions with heavy caveats

The Trump administration has clarified how it plans to ease the restrictions on US companies trading with Huawei. Officials said that the Chinese tech giant would remain on the Entity List, but that licenses to trade with the company would be issued under certain circumstances. Huawei was placed on the Entity List back in May, which means US companies are unable to sell technology to the company without government approval. In a speech given yesterday reported by the New York Times, US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said that his department “will issue licences where there is no threat to US...

Nintendo Switch Lite is a smaller, cheaper Switch built exclusively for handheld play

There’s a new Switch on the way, and it’s a whole lot smaller. Today Nintendo revealed the Switch Lite, designed as a less expensive alternative to the original tablet / console hybrid. It comes in at $199 — $100 less than the base unit — and for that price you get a streamlined version of the Switch, but also a few caveats. The Switch Lite is designed explicitly as a handheld: you can’t connect it to your TV, and the Joy-Con controllers are built right in. “The two systems will complement each other and co-exist in the marketplace,” Nintendo of...

US approves blacklisted Huawei for sale of goods with no threat to country

The US government will issue licenses to companies seeking to sell goods to China’s Huawei where there is no threat to national security, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said on Tuesday, leaving industry observers unsure about which products will pass muster. Seeking to revive trade talks with China, President Donald Trump announced last month that American companies would be allowed to sell products to Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, the world’s largest telecommunications equipment maker. Trump’s comments came after the United States placed Huawei on the Commerce Department’s so-called Entity List in May over national security concerns. US parts and components generally...
