Regarding that Bloomberg Story about the hardware hacking that is alleged to have affected 30 companies and the U.S. military.. Here's a video of Jordan Robertson, one of the story's authors, being interviewed by...Bloomberg.

Interestingly, one of the Bloomberg anchors asks Robertson some very pointed questions regarding various details in the first two minutes or so. 
Robertson keeps referencing Snowden.

Note that the DHS is saying that there is no reason to doubt the denials of the companies implicated as being hacked in the report. Which is a way of saying "No!" that allows all sorts of deniability down the road. 

For a story as potentially explosive as this is, it hasn't been getting a lot of coverage over here past the initial flurry of interest,  but it is reportedly making some waves in Asia.  Note, that to the best of my Googling however,  as of 4 days later, no one has produced a single rice grain sized spy chip. 

However, there IS an interview in NY Mag with a guy who wrote a techno thriller based on the concept.

1 Everything is proceeding exactly as I have foreseen, as the wall of denials is starting to crumble.
"The security expert, Yossi Appleboum, provided documents, analysis and other evidence of the discovery following the publication of an investigative report in Bloomberg Businessweek that detailed how China’s intelligence serviceshad ordered subcontractors to plant malicious chips in Supermicro server motherboards over a two-year period ending in 2015."
And attacking the credibility of Bloomberg isn't going to help.

...And then I go to read what Pixy posted - and I get whiplash from reading 'The wall of denial of the Bloomberg's story is crumbling' to 'The supporting structure for Bloomberg's story is crumbling.'

Something is not kosher here.
