Report: Trump officials planning escalation of US-China tech trade war

Ars Technica - 37 min 48 sec ago

Enlarge / Donald Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping in Beijing in November.

The Trump administration is looking to widen its trade war with China by restricting Chinese access to US technology, according to reports from the Wall Street Journal and Reuters.

"The Treasury Department is crafting rules that would block firms with at least 25 percent Chinese ownership from buying companies involved in what the White House calls 'industrially significant technology,'" the Wall Street Journal says. A separate proposal would institute beefed-up export controls preventing Chinese companies from buying these technologies from US firms.

The policies could be announced as soon as this week, the Journal says.

Xbox One mouse-and-keyboard support could be rolling out soon

It has been just over two years now since Microsoft's Phil Spencer promised that mouse-and-keyboard support for the Xbox One was "not years away, it’s more like months away." Though that's a promise Microsoft has echoed a few times in the years since, thus far Minecraft is the only game on the platform with official support for the PC player's controller of choice.

Over the weekend, though, Windows Central got its hands on a purported internal Microsoft presentation from earlier in the year detailing plans for the impending rollout of robust mouse-and-keyboard support for the Xbox One.

The developer-focused presentation, which also integrates lessons from Razer's living room-focused lapboard peripheral, suggested an April API rollout to developers ahead of a planned fall announcement of support for players. It's unclear, though, if those plans have changed since the presentation was given (Microsoft did not respond to a request for comment Update: A Microsoft spokesperson told Ars Technica, "We are always exploring new ways to improve the Xbox experience, but have nothing further to share at this time").
