- After reporting the Huawei's own OS - code-named HongMeng - was set for commercial rollout next month, TechRadar now says Huawei says this isn't the case, blaming internal confusion for the messaging. TechRadar Middle East was originally given the June date by a Middle East Huawei executive. On May 20, Google announced it would partially cut off Huawei devices from Android, but the US offered an extension through August 19th. Huawei says the actual release date for its OS is still slated for 2019 / 2020.
- Amazon halted orders from thousands of suppliers two months ago, and then resumed taking those orders, which at the time the company said was an effort to crack down o counterfeit products. But sources tell Bloomberg that over next few months, bulk orders will wind down for many smaller suppliers, as Amazon looks to cut costs and focus wholesale buying on big brands like Procter & Gamble, Sony and Lego. Vendors selling less than $10 million in products each year on Amazon will reportedly no longer get wholesale orders, and a source says the company didn’t renegotiate annual terms with many smaller vendors, which usually happens each spring.
- Japan’s government said Monday that foreign ownership of Japanese firms in high-tech industries will be restricted. The new rule is set to become effective Aug. 1st. The announcement didn't call out specific countries or companies that could be impacted, but says the rule applies to 20 sectors in information and communications industries. The law requires foreign investors to report to the Japanese government and undergo inspection if they buy at least 10% of stocks in listed Japanese companies or acquire shares of unlisted firms.
- Dell's new hybrid laptop/tablet XPS 13 features a taller 16:10 screen than the previous model, which Engadget says makes viewing spreadsheets and other productivity apps more useful. Its case now has more metal than any XPS case Dell has produced before, the screen is also closer to the edge-to-edge MagLev keyboard, the webcam has been moved up top, and the device has less-prominent hinges. Dell added Intel's 10th-gen 10nm CPU into the new XPS 13 and claims it'll be around 2.5-times faster than the last XPS convertible, and will also include Intel's faster Iris Plus integrated graphics. Dell says availability begins "soon", starting at $1,000.
- The Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG) comprised of Apple, Google, Microsoft, and Mozilla, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the standards body for the World Wide Web. The agreement states the W3C is officially giving up publishing future HTML and DOM standards and will give full control back to browser vendors. The W3C will draft "recommendations" for future web standards, but the WHATWG will decide ends up in their products. So, the official HTML standard will be the HTML Living Standard as well as the DOM Living Standard, both maintained by the WHATWG.
