SpaceX Raises Starlink Satellite Internet Prices

The price increase will take effect as soon as possible. The email looks like this:

Due to excessive inflation, the price of the Starlink bundle is increasing from $499 to $549 for pre-orderers and to $599 for all new orders. In addition, the monthly cost of the Starlink service will increase from $99 to $110. The new price will apply to your subscription from May 11, 2022. The sole purpose of these adjustments is to keep up with rising inflation. If you do not want to continue using the services, you can cancel at any time and return the Starlink equipment within the first year of service for a partial refund of $200. If you received your Starlink within the last 30 days, you can return it for a full refund. Since the launch of our public beta in October 2020, the Starlink team has tripled the number of satellites in orbit. In the future, users can expect Starlink to maintain its pace of continuous network improvements as well as the addition of new features.

The electric version of the best selling car in the US

Ford has finally begun shipping its F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck to retail customers.

The electric version of the best-selling car in the US.  Ford F-150 Lightning finally started shipping to retail customers

The company started production of the machines last month, and now the machines have begun to arrive to customers. The very first such lucky person is captured in the photo above.

A resident of Michigan booked a Platinum Trim Lightning package on May 20 last year, and he received the car on May 26 of this year, that is, almost exactly a year later. Interestingly, this person owns a Tesla Model 3, has already posted a Cybertruck deposit, and was considering buying a Rivian R1T.

Since the Ford F-Series is the best-selling car in the US, it’s no surprise that the company has amassed a huge amount of pre-orders for the electric version, and right now Ford can’t say exactly when it will be able to fulfill all these orders. This year, the company is going to produce only 40,000 cars, despite the fact that orders have been collected at least 200,000.

Including subsidies, the car in the US starts at $40,000.

Telegram Premium is getting closer the messenger will no

Since its global launch, the Telegram messenger has positioned itself as a “free forever” product. This message appeared when installing the program on Android. More precisely, the slogan was: “Telegram is free forever. Without advertising. No subscription fees.” But now it looks like things are about to change.

Telegram Premium is getting closer - the messenger will no longer be “free forever”

Developer Alessandro Paluzzi said that the text of the slide has changed in the section with translations for the client applications of the messenger. Now it looks like this: “Telegram offers free unlimited cloud storage for chats and media files.” Although there has been no official statement from the developers so far, it can be assumed that this is preparation for the launch of Telegram Premium.

In the fall of 2021, advertising appeared in the messenger: ads began to be displayed in large channels and groups. Premium features were also previously announced: in particular, paid account holders will receive a special badge next to their name, full-screen emojis and some other features will be available to them.

Thus, Telegram plans to improve the monetization of the product.

It seems that Apple may at least nominally introduce its mixed reality headset in the near future.

A brand new Apple product could be unveiled in a week.  The company registers the trademark realityOS

Shortly before the WWDC 2022 event, which starts in a week, two company applications for the registration of the realityOS trademark were discovered on the Web at once. Recall that this will be the name of the operating system for the Apple headset.

These applications were filed back in December, but the important thing is that they have a foreign filing deadline – the date by which an applicant must file a foreign patent application in order to claim an earlier domestic patent application – June 8th. That is, two days after WWDC. That is, it is very likely that it is at WWDC 2022 that the Cupertino giant will for the first time tell something about its headset, or at least its OS.
