Journalists attend the presentation of the Huawei's new smartphone, the Ascend P7, launched by China's Huawei Technologies in ParisBy Edwin Chan and Gerry Shih SAN FRANCISCO/BEIJING (Reuters) - Two years after U.S. legislators branded it a national security threat, China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd [HWT.UL] is planning a campaign to win over U.S. consumers, rolling out new mobile phones and wearable devices backed by a marketing effort. China's second-largest smartphone maker, already with more than $40 billion in annual revenue from a wide range of telecom gear and products, is preparing to introduce Americans to several of its smartphones and wearable devices this year, including its youth-oriented "Honor" phone, Huawei officials told Reuters.


Costly shift to new credit cards won't fix security issues

A customer signs the credit card pad as he pays for a purchase at Macy's on Black Friday in New YorkBy Nandita Bose CHICAGO (Reuters) - New technology about to be deployed by credit card companies will require U.S. consumers to carry a new kind of card and retailers across the nation to upgrade payment terminals. Credit card companies have set an October deadline for the switch to chip-enabled cards, which come with embedded computer chips that make them far more difficult to clone. Counterfeit cards, however, account for only about 37 percent of credit card fraud, and the new technology will be nearly as vulnerable to other kinds of hacking and cyber attacks as current swipe-card systems, security experts say. Moreover, U.S. banks and card companies will not issue personal identification numbers (PINs) with the new credit cards, an additional security measure that would render stolen or lost cards virtually useless when making in-person purchases at a retail outlet.

The Netherlands-based company said Tuesday it would supply maps and navigation software to Fiat in Latin America, beginning with Brazil and adding other countries during 2015.


Facebook's Zuckerberg seeks peace with telcos on Web-for-all push

Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg attends a keynote presentation event at the Mobile World Congress in BarcelonaBy Eric Auchard BARCELONA (Reuters) - Facebook Inc founder Mark Zuckerberg was on hostile turf on Monday as spoke to executives at the world's biggest annual gathering of the mobile industry, renewing attempts to win their backing to help reach billions of users with no Internet access. Speaking at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Zuckerberg sought to make peace with the telecoms industry, often some of his company's biggest critics, calling them "the folks who are here leading the charge to bring the Internet to the world." It was a turnabout from last year when Zuckerberg made waves at the event by showing up shortly after buying free communications service WhatsApp for $19.2 billion. His comments come amid an increasingly rancorous debate in which telecom and cable firms complain Silicon Valley giants such as Facebook and Google Inc that offer Web services are freeloading on the big investments they make in mobile and fixed-line networks.
