    Chip Ban & Other Events in China

    Excellent video (as usual) on Chip ban and importance of free-trade etc.

    Off-topic - Cant help but think about stark similarities with what he is saying and how HK has been managed post handover and where it is going (or not) with acceleration in post 2019 world and clueless administration..

    Dang! As of now some projects here are facing EOL chips & have tried to source locally, sadly it's either they can't meet the specs or they fail prematurely, cn has still a very long way before they can do catch up in the semiconductor area.

    Well, moving production lines to other countries with no ban is one solution.

    I thought this was a limited subset of high end chips - GPU etc.. or does it affect say common cellphone SOCs etc?

    Banning cutting edge chip making equipment will potentially slow China's progress

    What an impossible situation for the police... they did pretty well there in the circumstances.

    Tough to tell if it was the HKers storming the gate first or someone getting dragged over the threshold though. Some of those clips are already a bit selectively edited. Can anyone tell definitively? Doesn't help that Mr Consul then tries to get into the consulate past the same people adding to the mess.

    If the guy was dragged in and beaten the consulate staff should all be persona non grata and on a flight to Beijing before lunch time.

    Yeah... very hard to say if the guy was already past the gate, since it did seem like the gate was open.

    Was surprised the police did what for all purposes seems like the right thing - dragged the guy back out into the street.

    It's confirmed he was dragged in, see below. The protesters were just holding a protest there, there would simply no reason for them to storm into a Chinese consulate.
