Brett's list of bits - stuff and things as well as things and stuff...
US and China agree on something...
...but the US says that China shouldn't have it.
This is stupid - the US was asking technology companies to put back doors into their products so that intelligence and law enforcement agencies could "track terrorists" and "find criminals". But this would weaken the products - and back doors could be exploited by anyone else, including those terrorists and criminals; generally making everything less safe.
But when China wants to do the same thing, the US is all "no - you can't do that" - because after all, if someone else had back doors that would compromise US security.
