Xiaomi Corporation, the third biggest smartphone manufacturer, has become the latest Chinese company to be added to a US list of companies that are alleged to have connections to the Chinese military.

Decisions about closing someone's social media account should be transparent and there should be avenues to appeal, according to Reset Australia, which claims that ultimately the real harm from Big Tech's “unchecked algorithms and data usage” can't be solved by a voluntary code.

The Swedish Post and Telecom Authority says it plans to resume the country's 5G spectrum auctions on 19 January, after obtaining approval from a court to go ahead with the same, despite the fact that Chinese vendor Huawei Technologies has gone to court over being excluded from the auctions.
