Google is moving US-bound Nest production out of China, reports Bloomberg

Google is moving its production of US-bound Nest devices and server hardware out of China in order to avoid tariffs as high as 25 percent, reports Bloomberg. Production of motherboards heading to Google’s US data centers have moved to Taiwan, while Nest devices heading Stateside are now being produced in Taiwan and Malaysia. The moves are a response to increasing tensions created by the US-China trade war.

The shift in geographies are meant to shore up Google’s bottom line. Tariffs have to either be absorbed directly by the companies or passed along to consumers in the form of higher prices. As such, many companies that sell to the USA are now considering moving at least some of their manufacturing out of China, disrupting a complex global supply chain network as old as “iPod cities.”

The production shift comes as tensions are mounting in a continuing trade war between the USA and China. Yesterday, Foxconn said it was prepared to move the production of US-bound iPhones outside of China before tariffs as high as 25 percent kick in at the end of the month.

Google will donate 100,000 Home Minis because so many people with paralysis rely on them.
The public can also help with this effort by instructing their Google Assistant: “Hey Google, donate to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.” Redd, who aspires to win a gold medal at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo and who also teaches workout routines on his YouTube channel, says the first thing he did when he got a Mini was connect it to his Nest Thermostat. Since he’s in training for the Olympics, he also uses his Mini to set alarms, manage his training schedule and listen to Spotify playlists to get pumped before a workout.
