      My data is much safer in Chinese hands than in Western hands.
      😂. This is brilliant.

      When faced with Quaridelirium's white supremacist ramblings, this is the only logical response.

That is the US law from a point and then. If it where not for a certain eastern terrorist religion, i would say that US is the bottom of humanity.
        Lol, you think Christianity isn't a terrorist religion either? All religions are equally delusional, and all religious people are equally mentally insane.

            Many reports of Lenovo's firmware updates bricking the thinkpads or causing other problems. Fortunately for me the update to 1.32 has never succeeded, otherwise I might have had my laptop made unusable. Now it appears that the update has been withdrawn.

              I think you're twisting the facts here a bit. The US, and any country for that matter, doesn't like having its critical infrastructure (5G, telephony) infiltrated by hostile foreign powers such as the Chinese government. It also doesn't like bugs equipped with microphones, cameras and modems being distributed among its own citizens, devices that it has absolutely no control over. That's an obvious security threat. You've discarded all these concerns to bash the US for making moves that protect its national security.


              Do you mean Communism? You know, because its religious devotees are always committing genocide.
              US is trashy country with no respect to peoples freedoms. They will kick you out if you don' accept their backdoors.

                Very few people in the world have any data worth taking anyway. All this posturing is simply another attempt to make one self-important.

                99.999999% of most people's data are backups of photos from the last family vacation. If the CCP wants to look at millions of baby photos at the beach, so what?
                Lol, it's not just baby photos. People store important documents, sometimes passport or driving license scans, tax returns etc. Nude photos. Live camera and microphone access is also a big concern. Plus keylogging where passwords and other credentials can be stolen.

                  Let me just say: I disagree.
                  But you can already do updates........fwupd is able to update the UEFI just fine before this change.

                  This change is about being able to modify UEFI settings from the OS.

                    Hm, I haven't faced any problems so far with firmware updates.

                      https://www.reuters.com/article/us-q...0F825Y20140703

                      I know that Apples stuff is produced by TSMC and Samsung? So yes you are right not all is manufactured in china.
                      Samsung and TSMC manufacture the majority of smartphone SoCs.
