You aren't in the loop.

 

Bloomberg's report of added chip in Chinese made electroinic devices was fake.

It is usual manipulation to run down the price of the stock. Market traders always load-up-the-boat, when price dips and this occassion was great example of how to make coin on stock dips.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-10-04/explosive-report-details-chine...

But regardless of what is said on Thursday, one thing probably won't change: Expect to hear a lot less about Russia, and a lot more about China as the deep state's interference myopic focus on the former shifts to the latter. As Kevin Warsh framed the question during a Thursday interview with CNBC where he asked "are we at the beginning of a 20-year Cold War?" in response to a question about curbing China's influence - both economically and defensively. We imagine we'll be hearing a lot more about the breach from senior US officials, including both the vice president and the president himself, in the very near future.

I can't find refutal, but I read about it on ZeroHedge.

 

Worry about this:

I have been following this.

Given the 100s of thousands of ppl involved in the manufacture and supply chain, lets see if one spills the beans.

I used to work in a factory that done surface mount circuit boards. long time ago. It was a Japanese company. Given that the production lines were 100s of meters long, even I would have noticed if someone had sneaked in over the weekend and extended the line to add a new chip placement module. And stocked the stores with hundreds of thousands of chips, hack the stock inventory, changed the boms, and redone the gerber data for the flow solder templates.

And given that a large number of circuits etc are designed outside China, we can add perhaps another 100k non chinese to the conspiricy.

All this before we even get to testing and validation. All the coders at microsoft and google did not spot an addition.

Test engineers designing their test jigs might spot something amiss when their coda probes miss their target cos of a secretly added chip.

And surely the accountants and cost engineers would question why a non specified chip was on the BOM.

And finally. The other China has to help. Given that it is mainly Taiwanese companys that do OEM PC stuff.

Impressive if they have pulled it off.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
