Security risks from Huawei? What about national security risks from Microsoft/Intel/Cisco/Google/Facebook to the other countries in the world?
It is simple: don't buy from Huawei, buy from Cisco. Remember Toyota's accelerator pedal.

Issues like spying are always a potential concern, but what about issues like unemployed engineers turning to desperate situations because of lack of work (or relevant work).
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
