In 2008, the company Brink’s Home Security was sold to Tyco, but the company Hampton Products kept the rights to the Brink’s name. However, Brink’s has been out of the world of electronic security for about a decade. This changed at the recent International Builders Show: Hampton introduced Brink’s ARRAY, a smart deadbolt lock that comes with Amazon Echo control and fast installation time. The lock is priced at two hundred and forty-nine dollars and is currently scheduled for a tentative summer release date. Hampton hopes to sell the lock online and in stores like Home Depot.

They have questions regarding what Meitu intends to do with all this data, given that the app doesn’t need it to make your face appear sparkly and cartoony. Meitu’s website released a statement that says that the data is used to “optimize app performance”. Make of that what you will, but users have other complaints, like that the app makes people of all skin colors appear much whiter.
