EFE UDINSEPTEMBER 10, 2020 Today, Huawei held the HDC Developer Conference and officially launched Hongmeng OS 2.0. After the Hongmeng new version launch, the company also released the EMUI11. After the conference, Wang Chenglu, President of Huawei’s Consumer Business Software Department, spoke with the media. For him, Hongmeng OS is doing very well. According to him, Hongmeng OS 2.0 is completely different from the Android system. Wang Chenglu said “You can think of the Hongmeng OS terminals as modules rather than individual terminals. For example, why can the Windows system plug in a printer and print directly? The reason is that current printers are designed based on the Windows framework. This is also the case with Hongmeng OS 2.0, which treats an...

A state department spokeswoman described those whose visas were revoked as "high-risk graduate students and research scholars". She said they were a "small subset" of the total number of Chinese students. "We continue to welcome legitimate students and scholars from China who do not further the Chinese Communist Party...

That's just one example of inefficient home appliance use, and it's probably one that most people would like to avoid if they could.
