Companion robots not yet widespread

As we have already reported, the specialists of the analytical company ABI Research believe that in 2022 it will not be possible to eliminate the shortage of semiconductor products. This is one of ABI Research’s predictions about what NOT to expect in the coming year.

So, according to analysts, despite big headlines and big investments, the metaverse will not appear in 2022 or even during the typical five-year forecast window. ABI Research is confident that while this is “not a full-fledged end goal with a specific date of arrival,” just another buzzword. While recognizing that there are a number of tech companies building their own version of the metaverse, analysts note that these metauniverses are not interconnected, do not use open standards, and do not embrace augmented reality (XR). Meanwhile, the listed features are considered fundamental for the metaverse. And this is even if we do not take into account cryptoeconomics, which is also often called a must-have feature.

The next clause of the “anti-forecast” states that there will be no edge computing boom in 2022. Deployment of computing at the edge of the cloud will continue, but it will be largely driven by early adopters of new technologies. The expected boom has not matured yet. Edge computing use cases and the financial viability of the corresponding model are closely tied to 5G cellular networks – both public and private. At the same time, affordable 5G services that will power edge computing have yet to become a global reality.

Analysts also believe companion robots will still not be widely used. After several years of leading social robotics companies either closing stores or abandoning their commercial offerings, the industry began to revive in 2021. However, despite the enormous potential of social and companion robotics, 2022 will not be a breakthrough year. The analysts’ point of view suggests that the situation has changed as consumer awareness rises and prices decline, but in which year this will happen is still unknown.

Americans are more satisfied with the old and very primitive

The American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) has published a press release on the satisfaction of Americans with certain brands and devices. In this document, we are most interested in smartphones.

And here the leader was the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. It could be said that this is unexpected, since in the US Samsung is still about half behind Apple in sales, but in fact a year earlier, the Samsung device was also in the lead in a similar list, and two years ago the company’s smartphones occupied all the first three places.

Be that as it may, the flagship of 2020 became the leader, which at the time of release was scolded for various shortcomings and features. Unexpectedly, LG Aristo 3, unknown outside the US, took second place. Moreover, this is a budget smartphone in 2019 on the SoC Snapdragon 425! How he even got on the leaderboard is completely unclear. Closes the top three iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Also on the leaderboard are HTC U12+, Pixel 4 and iPhone XR. In general, the list turned out to be as diverse as possible.

If we talk about brands, here Samsung and Apple share the first line of the rating with 80 points each. The top five also includes Google, Motorola and LG.

The photo allows you to compare the dimensions of all

A photo of covers allegedly intended for Apple’s new generation smartphones has appeared on the Web. The authenticity of the image cannot be verified, but in general everything looks plausible.

The two larger cases are for iPhone 14 Max and 14 Pro Max. The other two are made for the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro.

The difference in camera cutouts indicates that the lower models are likely to retain the two-sensor configuration, while the older ones will get three. At the same time, if we compare these cases with cases for current models, it becomes clear that the dimensions of the camera blocks will grow again, which allows us to hope for even better photos and videos. Recall that numerous rumors suggest that the older smartphones of the new generation will receive new 48-megapixel image sensors for the main cameras.

Nvidia is going to cool the 600-watt GeForce RTX 4090 Ti with a giant air cooler. CO radiator hit the photo

Nvidia is going to cool the 600 watt GeForce RTX 4090

Nvidia video cards of the new generation are credited with incredible gluttony up to 600 watts of power consumption. True, the latest data allows us to hope that at least the GeForce RTX 4090 will require only 450 watts. But the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti, if it comes out, will obviously consume more.

One would think that a card with such appetites could only have a liquid or, in extreme cases, a hybrid approval, but perhaps an air one would suffice. This is indicated by photos of the GeForce RTX 4090 Ti Founders Edition cooler, which appeared on the Web today.

Without a direct comparison, it is not so easy to estimate the dimensions, but you can still see that the radiator is huge. It’s very big on current top Nvidia cards, but here it’s even bigger.

At the same time, one can only guess whether even such a monstrous CO is enough to cool a card with a consumption of 600 W.

It also cannot be ruled out that this is just one of the prototypes of the cooler, and as a result the card will receive a different CO. Also, it could be a fake. But it is worth remembering that the photos of the GeForce RTX 3080 cooler at one time also appeared long before the announcement of the video cards themselves.
