Best Buy walks away from Huawei, leaving it with zero US retail partners

Here's another nail in the coffin for Huawei's US expansion plans: Best Buy will reportedly stop selling Huawei products over "the next few weeks," according to a new report from CNet. Best Buy is the latest major retail partner to dump Huawei's products after the US Senate and House Intelligence committees targeted Huawei smartphones over spying concerns earlier this year.

Huawei was poised to make a big break into the US market this year via deals it had lined up with AT&T and Verizon. Once the Intelligence Committee caught wind of Huawei's plans, it started contacting Huawei's partners and pressuring them to cut ties with the company. Despite the ubiquity of Chinese products in the US marketplace, the committee feels Huawei is a little too connected to the Chinese government, which it says raises "concerns regarding Huawei and Chinese espionage." Huawei's potential for spying has long been a concern of the US government, but those concerns mostly revolved around the company's networking gear.

Best Buy is the latest distributer to walk away from Huawei, and, with all the carriers jumping ship, it was also the last major brick-and-mortar location where consumers could actually see a Huawei phone in person. The only places to buy Huawei phones in the US now are Internet retailers like Amazon and Newegg.

Formula 1’s new streaming service suddenly on hold

Ars Technica - 1 hour 52 min ago

In 2016, US-based Liberty Media bought the commercial rights to that most spendy of motor sports, Formula 1. In doing so, it promised to bring the 21st century to a racing series that, when it came to fan engagement, might as well have been trapped in 1995.

One of those changes has been a desire to offer a streaming service for fans, but, with the season-opening race taking place March 25—this Sunday—the service is conspicuous by its absence. The launch of F1 TV Pro, which would have cost around $8 to $12 for a race weekend, is now on hold.

Until this year, the lack of a streaming service was mostly down to a combination of apathy and contracts. Bernie Ecclestone, who ran the sport for decades, got there by buying up the broadcast rights to each race, eventually packaging them all together in a move that made him extremely wealthy and changed the sport into the polished, glossy, elitist thing it is today. And there was a time when Ecclestone even embraced progress. In the late 1990s, he launched a pay-per-view channel called F1 Digital+, which didn't take ad breaks and offered multiple video and audio feeds.
