Here's some good news for those who own a Huawei phone
Sure, Huawei owners are concerned right now that their phones might not receive any more updates (either for the Android operating system or for Android apps) after August 19th. And Huawei products are certainly not welcome in the U.S. by lawmakers. In some countries, those with a Huawei device are rushing to trade it in before its value declines even more. But if you own a Huawei handset and you are planning a trip to Mexico City, you'll be greeted with open arms by a restaurant called Taqueria Tachitos.

Bloomberg reports that customers who bring a Huawei device to the eatery will be given a free order of tacos al pastor with a minimum order valued at 60 pesos (equivalent to $3.15 at today's exchange rate). On the restaurant's Facebook page a message is posted to those who own a Huawei phone, "We understand your pain."

The U.S. has been punishing Huawei and calling it a national security threat due to fears that it might be called on to spy for the communist government in China. However, it also appears that President Donald Trump wants to use Huawei as a bargaining chip to get Beijing to agree to certain conditions in any future trade agreement. On the other hand, the Chinese government says that it won't sit and talk to the U.S. until Huawei is allowed to source parts from the U.S. on a permanent basis.

Yes Huawei owners, you might feel as though the U.S. is against you along with Google, Qualcomm, ARM, Panasonic, the Wi-Fi Alliance and a whole bunch of other companies that you might have never heard of. If that thought gets you down, consider the small restaurant in Mexico City that has your back.

Perhaps President Trump and President Xi Jinping should get together at Taqueria Tachitos and try to work out their differences over an order of tacos al pastor. By the way, if you are planning on heading over to the restaurant, the address is Tuberias MZ16, LT10 Solidaridad Nacional 07268 in Mexico City.

So what happens when China decides Apple is a security risk and Apples manufacturing comes to a halt? America is the king of global spying.

I think Apple have already started manufacturing some of its products in other countries like India, Vietnam, etc.

Waiting for the article: "Bring in your Huawei phone and we will shred it and sent it back to China for free."

Articles like these are welcome to counteract the mass-hysteria from idiots wanting to dispose of their perfectly fine Huawei or Honor phone. A P30 (pro) is still a very fine mobile device despite all this political BS. I certainly am not gonna get rid off my perfectly good but older Honor 8 (with Android 6.x). It's still very fast, has everything possible (including IR-blaster, SD-card slot and headphone jack) and works perfectly despite it's older Android (without the severely overhyped security updates) and older EMUI. In fact I'm NOT gonna buy any new handset until proper call-recording is back in order on Android. This regretably restricts my purchasing portfolio to Android 8.x devices only atm but so be it!
