Huawei Restores Tencent Games to App Store

Huawei Technologies Co. added Tencent Holdings Ltd.’s games back to its app store after the two technologies companies negotiated an agreement.

“We will continue to work together to bring better experience and service to Tencent game community,” a spokesperson for Tencent said Friday.

The games were removed after Tencent made a “big change” on Dec. 31 to how the companies work with each other, according to an official announcement posted on Huawei’s gaming app. It didn’t elaborate on details of the change.

While most smartphones in China use Google’s Android operating system, the U.S. company’s Play store isn’t available and apps are instead sold by mainland manufacturers and others. Huawei was the biggest smartphone maker in the country during the September quarter with 43% of shipments, according to Counterpoint Research.

(Reuters) – Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian said in a memo on Friday that he continues to expect that the company will achieve positive cash flow by the spring.

“As difficult as 2020 was, in many ways I expect the next 12 months to be even more challenging,” he added.

‘Technolgy, skilling vital for aerospace, defence’

Government can do more, says Ziegler

India needs to focus on deploying latest technology and skilling its workforce to become the next major powerhouse in aerospace and defence sectors, according to David Ziegler, vice-president of aerospace and defense, Dassault Systemes.

“To make sure India will be one of the next major powerhouses in aerospace and defence, I think there are three parts to that. First, there needs to be people, there needs to be education and workforce of the future. So, the government can do a little bit more in this space.”

The second pillar, he said, was to have governmental programmes where he said he believed India to be on the right track with specific investments in defence and in space sectors.

The third pillar, he said, was about technology. “I think here India may still have a long way to go in order to adopt the latest technology,” he said.

“That would be my recommendation — focus on people, focus on technology,” he said.

Verizon And Hearst Television Reach Deal To Avoid Fios Blackouts

Verizon and Hearst Television struck a deal overnight that will keep nine Hearst owned-and-operated stations including in Baltimore, Pittsburgh and the Boston area from going dark on Verizon Fios systems. No details were disclosed Friday on the new retransmission contract, which replaces the old one that was set to expire December 31.

“Verizon Fios has been able to reach an agreement with Hearst Television,” a Verizon rep told Reuters today after the company sent a note to subscribers saying the deal was done.

Hearst stations in Fios’ lineup include WBAL-NBC in Baltimore, WGAL-NBC in Harrisburg, PA, WTAE-ABC in Pittsburgh, and WCVB-ABC and WMUR-ABC in Boston/Manchester. The station lineup also provides content from MeTV and Cozi TV.

Verizon, the nation’s sixth-largest operator, warned customers earlier this week that a blackout was possible, saying Hearst was demanding a 45% increase that would force customers’ monthly bills to go up.

Verizon this week also warned that a retrans agreement with Gray Television is also in flux that could impact a pair of stations in Richmond, VA: WWBT-NBC and WUVP-CW.

Hearst owns and operates TV and radio stations in 26 markets in 39 states, reaching a total of 21 million U.S. television households.
