Fitbit Versa is a cheaper alternative to the Apple Watch, up for purchase at Amazon for $200

Qualcomm's purchase of NXP Technologies hung up by U.S.-China trade war

The trade war between the U.S. and China that was started when the U.S. proposed tacking a 25% tariff on certain imports from that country, has since escalated with Chinese retaliation followed by another list of products from China that the U.S. plans to impose a tariff on. This battle between the two countries came about because of President Donald J.

The last time we checked in on the soap opera that is Broadcom’s attempt to acquire Qualcomm, the latter had just raised its bid for auto chip maker NXP by 16% to $44 billion. That made Broadcom a little ticked off, to say the least. So the wireless and telecom chip provider decided to cut its offer for Qualcomm by 4% to $117 billion, or $79 a share from the previous $82 a share bid.

But all of this financial maneuvering is covering up what is really going on here. On March 6th, Qualcomm stockholders vote for the company’s Board of Directors. There are 11 seats on the board, and Broadcom …
