San Francisco, May 22 (IANS) Complying to US President Donald Trump's executive order to crack down on Chinese tech companies, software giant Microsoft has removed Huawei laptops from the store, while remaining silent on the potential Windows ban.
A listing for the MateBook X Pro mysteriously disappeared over the weekend and searching for any Huawei hardware shows no results at the Microsoft Store. The software giant appears to have stopped selling Huawei's MateBook X Pro at the company's online store as well, The Verge reported on Tuesday.
Microsoft's potential Windows ban could also affect Huawei's server solutions. Microsoft and Huawei both operate a hybrid cloud solution for Microsoft's Azure stack, using Microsoft-certified Huawei servers.
Over the weekend, Google cut off Huawei's Android license but Microsoft stayed silent on whether it will prevent the Chinese company from obtaining Windows licenses.
For now, Huawei has been granted a 90-day extension to provide software updates to Android-powered handsets and maintain "continued operation of existing networks and equipment".
However, this narrow extension does not seem to apply to Windows licenses for laptops, the report added.
US-based chip-makers Intel and Qualcomm would also need to follow the latest US government order.
New Delhi, May 22 (IANS) A day after a technical snag hit the Delhi Metro Yellow Line that left thousands of commuters stranded for over two hours, authorities on Wednesday said that such glitches cannot be ruled out completely even though high priority is given to the maintenance of the tracks and the electric cables.
"With around 30 lakh people commuting by metro daily, maintenance is always given high priority. What happened yesterday (Tuesday) on the Yellow Line had nothing to do with maintenance and it was completely a technical snag," a DMRC official told IANS.
"Such a snag has happened after a long time. We are closely monitoring its reason," the official said.
The Delhi government on Tuesday said the metro authorities took a long time to evacuate one of the two trains that stopped at Chhatarpur and Sultanpur metro stations at 9.30 a.m. due to the breakdown of the overhead wire (OHE) at the Sultanpur station.
Commenting on this, the official said that evacuating more than 5,000 commuters was a huge task and the corporation had to see to the safety of the passengers.
"We evacuated all the commuters safely and when they were brought to the stations they were provided with water."
