The details:

  • Foxconn will get $3 billion to build a plant in Wisconsin

Wisconsin’s Foxconn deal is a go.

On Monday, Gov. Scott Walker approved $3 billion in incentives for the Taiwanese electronics manufacturer to build a new plant in the state. The hefty gift, which was first announced in July, was hotly debated by state legislators before they gave their approval last week.

“We are honored Foxconn chose Wisconsin, and I’m grateful to [Foxconn CEO] Terry Gou and the members of both parties in the Legislature for all they have done to make this historic event a reality,” Walker, a Republican, said in a statement.

Foxconn has pledged to invest $10 billion to build a factory that makes LCD screens. The facility is expected to create between 3,000 and 13,000 new jobs and should be up and running by 2020.

The deal has been touted by President Donald Trump, who has referred to Gou as “one of the great businessmen anywhere in the world.”

But in Wisconsin, the agreement’s price tag has made it controversial.

The annual payout to Foxconn will be between $200 million and $250 million, according to the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.

That means the state will pay between $15,000 and $19,000 dollars per job per year, assuming 13,000 positions are actually created.

The incentives include up to $1.5 billion in state income tax credits for job creation, up to $1.35 billion in state income tax credits for capital investment and up $150 million for the sales and use tax exemption, according to the development agency.

  • Roku aims to raise $252 million with IPO

Video streaming pioneer Roku hopes to raise just over $252 million in an initial public offering as it tries to expand into more households.

The Los Gatos, California, company on Monday said it would offer about 18 million shares of stock at $14 apiece.

The company had 15.1 million active accounts as of June 30 and claims that its users streamed more than 6.7 billion hours over the six-month period ending June 30.

Roku is still unprofitable and has amassed $244 million in losses since it was founded in 2002. The company generates most of its revenue from selling its streaming players, but it’s increasingly bringing in money from advertising and commissions from subscriptions and other transactions made on its devices.

Roku’s growth strategy also includes boosting its content offerings.

Increasingly, Roku is competing with Amazon, Google and Apple as streaming video becomes a more popular option among people looking to cut the cord and move away from traditional cable service. Roku has emerged as the U.S. market leader in streaming players, with a 37 percent share during the first three months of this year, according to the market research firm Park Associates. Amazon Fire TV ranked second with a 24 percent market share, followed by Google’s Chromecast at 18 percent and Apple TV at 15 percent.

  • Intel, Waymo, expand self-driving car collaboration

Intel says it is expanding its relationship with Google spinoff Waymo in the development of self-driving cars.

The world’s largest computer chipmaker said Monday it will take on a more collaborative role with Waymo’s new self-driving Chrysler Pacifica minivans. Intel will continue to supply technology for the autonomous driving project.

Waymo’s Chrysler Pacifica fleet is fit with Intel Corp. technology for sensor processing, general computing and connectivity.

No financial details of the deal between Intel and Waymo were announced.

Waymo spun off from Google late last year and is an independent company owned by Google parent Alphabet Inc.

Intel, based in Santa Clara, California, recently acquired Israel’s Mobileye, a leader in software that integrates autonomous car sensors. BMW, Intel and Mobileye announced an autonomous vehicle partnership last year.

  • The person named most dangerous online might surprise you

One-time pop-punk princess Avril Lavigne has beaten superstar Beyonce at something, but she may not be totally happy with her victory — she’s been named the most dangerous celebrity on the internet.

Cybersecurity firm McAfee said Tuesday that Lavigne, whose last album came out in 2013, was the most likely celebrity to land users on websites that carry viruses or malware. Searches for Lavigne have a 14.5 percent chance of landing on a web page with the potential for online threats, a number that increases to 22 percent if users type her name and search for free MP3s.

Bruno Mars was second in his debut on the list, followed closely behind by Carly Rae Jepsen. Zayn Malik (No. 4), Celine Dion (No. 5), Calvin Harris (No. 6), Justin Bieber (No. 7), Sean “Diddy” Combs (No. 8), Katy Perry (No. 9) and Beyonce (No. 10) rounded out the top 10 list.

It’s a dubious step up for Lavigne, who was ranked No. 2 in 2013. Lavigne, whose hits include “Sk8er Boi,” ”Complicated” and “I’m With You,” has been out of the spotlight for several years as she battles Lyme disease.

McAfee had a few suggestions for why Lavigne scored so high on the 11th annual list: Interest after the artist said she’s working on a new album, a feature story on her by E! Online and an internet conspiracy that she has been replaced by an impostor.
