I love how the only comment that would actually impact apples treasonous behavior is the bottom comment.

So we’re cool with all manufacturing and parts like chips going to China, but draw the line at a couple engineers?

The way chips are designed is not a secret. It’s a secret how they’re made so well (mostly by TSMC)

There’s a pretty broad set of federal export restrictions that recently came into play on ICs, commodities that include IC, supercomputing, and semiconductor manufacturing items.

Of significant interest is that semiconductor manufacturing bit which can include equipment, parts, IP, and technical guidance from US companies…. It’s nuanced, where and when it’s applied, for which entities / nodes / applications.

Regardless, suffice to say that right now, no the US is not “cool” with chip parts and manufacturing being shipped to China.

But the good stuff isn't what's being made in China, the line is also drawn at manufacturing* (*to an extent, see things like the AMD venture)

I’m confused on why this is terrible? Can someone explain? Or is it simply just because it’s China?

No I’m just asking a real question. Sub is usually good with being informative. Guess I was wrong.

I think @nova9001 was trying to say reddits general opinion is China bad. But redditors don't have communication skills
