Yeah, Huawei is definitely no victim in general (and there have been more claims of stolen IP too, so crazy). But I never saw Samsung being banned for copying the iPhone lol.

In case you're wondering what the Huawei stuff means for current or future devices.

Google has released a new statement confirming that current Huawei (and likely Honor) phones should be safe, for now

That's crazy. I remember reviewing a few Meizu phones back in 2017 or so, and it was really simply to just sideload from Meizu's "Hot Apps" store lol.

Silly question, but what about microg? Would that mitigate things?

This clarifies a lot. Was also wondering about sideloading gapps because Meizu back in the day. But Google is more stringent now, right?

Yep of course. But let's not assume that there isn't a benefit for people to initiatives like this.

The company actually has invested in renewable initiatives here. The big hurdle for some countries is getting rid of red tape, which is a government issue rather than company issue. Again, companies, people, and organisations can focus on more than one thing at once though.

Jobs are really more important at the moment than anything. Especially when youth unemployment here is well over 40%. It's just the truth. And with strong labour unions and safeguards in place, it'll help to reduce exploitation.

Video games are just one industry. In the same way that textile work is an industry, or IT support is an industry. Every bit helps to reduce unemployment and improve economies here.

No, it's taken years for people to realise that it offers these industries. Some of our first games were released in the 1990s and early 2000s. We've had several more big hits since then and it's resulted in a ton of people studying/working in the field.

We've also had gaming industries on the continent for decades. This action will hopefully spur development thereof. And developing industries is a major way to improve economies and wellbeing.

Glad to see you're on the continent. :) It's tiresome to see many tech companies merely talk about Africa as a growth opportunity instead of taking action.
