Apple supplier Foxconn buys Belkin for $866M in case to carve out its smart home business

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Foxconn Interconnect Technology Limited (FIT), a company most famous for being a supplier of Apple’s smartphones announced it has bought US consumer electronics maker Belkin International for $ 866M.

Belkin F7U014 wireless charging pad

Belkin is a maker of consumer electronics products including wireless chargers, home automation, and intelligent water solutions. Its three core brands are Belkin, Linksys and, WeMo. FIT expects to leverage Belkin’s sales networks, technology and production capabilities, thus carving out its ‘smart home’ business by acquiring Belkin as well as its Linksys and Wemo businesses.

The acquisition was framed as a merger between FIT and Belkin leaving Chet Pipkin, CEO and founder, Belkin International at the helm of Belkin with additional responsibilities as part of FIT’s management team. “FIT is excited to acquire Belkin and its capabilities in the premium consumer products space,” Integrating Belkin’s best-in-class capabilities and solutions into FIT, we expect to enrich our portfolio of premium consumer products and accelerate our penetration into the smart home,” said Sidney Lu, CEO, FIT.

The merger announcement comes on the heels of President Trump’s blockage of Broadcom’s bid to acquire Qualcomm. “The FIT-Belkin merger is subject to approval from the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States,” reports Financial Times.

As opposed to the current trend of hardware startups raising millions in several rounds of outside investments, Belkin only raised a private equity round in 2002 led by Summit partners. Neither it acquired any companies during its growth journey to become a multi-million enterprise.

On the contrary, Apple supplier Foxconn previously bought several companies to grow beyond smartphone market. It bought Japan-based Sharp Corporation, a manufacturer and, a seller of electric telecommunication, electric and electronic equipment for $ 3.8B in Mar 2016.

FIT-Belkin merger marks the second high-profile acquisition deal of 2018 as Google announced last month its acquisition of Xively from LogMeIn for $ 50M.

L’Oreal Buys Augmented Reality Beauty App, Allowing Robots To Point Out Our Every Flaw

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Makeup-users, get ready. AI is ready to tell us we look ugly.

The app ModiFace scrutinizes your skin type, points out what’s wrong with your face, (you’ve got wrinkles here, a spot there), and suggests cosmetics that might be able to repair or cover those flaws.

If you just thought, “Hey, making people feel insecure is a great way to get people to buy cosmetics,” you’re not alone. French cosmetic giant L’Oreal recently purchased the Canadian company for an undisclosed (but likely astronomical) sum.

In theory, the tool sounds kind of cool. The company has published more than 200 scientific studies and holds 30 patents in development of this technology, so there’s reason to believe it works better than some of the other makeup apps already out there (ModiFace would probably become the best-known of these once L’Oreal makes it ubiquitous). And because it’s an app, it doesn’t require investment in a whole new piece of hardware, the way Amazon smartmirror would.

Plus it sounds pretty convenient. Trying a new foundation without having to go to the store and covering my hand with poorly-colored product? Yes, please.

But there’s an obvious downside to ModiFace: it provides users with a limited definition of what it means to look beautiful.

That standard is getting narrower all the time thanks to social media. Despite some effort to expand beauty standards to people of different colors, shapes, and sizes, the popularity of sites like Instagram and Snapchat make the same old beauty standards seem attainable and immediate, the airbrushing and photoshopping seem less obvious.

“We are on the verge of a very, very serious problem,”Jane Cunningham, the author of Britishbeautyblogger.com, told The Guardian in 2015. “The world of vloggers and YouTubers has created a perverse, homogenized sense of distorted ‘beauty’ with no diversity or reality… Society is losing all perspective on the diversity of beauty and it’s contributing to an alarming growth in dysmorphia.” Recent scientific literature has confirmed this assessment.

Consumers, especially women, don’t need another faceless entity pointing out every little flaw. That’s especially true for women of color, for whom facial recognition software can be inaccurate. Might ModiFace direct non-white users towards more limited products for their skin tones, or push them to ascribe to a particular aesthetic they may not agree with? Well, it wouldn’t be the first time. And it’s not clear from ModiFace’s marketing materials whether the tool works for non-cis women — a growing market of makeup consumers (in 2016 L’Oreal itself used a male model to advertise cosmetics).

A tool like ModiFace might be useful for some makeup users, or convenient even. But for others, it will just be another entity telling them they’re not young enough, not white enough, not pretty enough.
