    Huawei is Allegedly Stealing Technology from Apple Suppliers

    Man oh man, the moral relativism. Children, there's no country who does this on the massive scale that Chinese businesses do, and Huawei has been in the international spotlight recently.

    Bluetooth Amplifier Board: D3116 50 watts x 2 starting at $7.80 shipped
