No more SD cards or SD card slots: SD Association kicks Huawei out

Soon after being placed on the Entity list, bad news for Huawei just keeps piling up and starting to go in interesting directions.
Starting May 23rd, Huawei can no longer make SD cards or even put a microSD card slot into its devices. The SD Association, based in San Ramon, California, quietly removed Huawei from its laundry list of consortium members, according to Gizchina.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk says the company is close to reaching its target production numbers for its Model 3 electric vehicle.
In an email sent to Tesla employees, Musk noted that the company has received over 50,000 new vehicle orders during this quarter. Because of that, the company has achieved 900 Model 3 deliveries per day, just 10 percent under its target of 1,000 Model 3 units per day.
