Experts of the analytical company IDC have summed up the results of the third quarter of 2021 in the market of printers, MFPs and copiers – everything that is usually combined under the wording “devices for making hard copies.”

Data available to IDC shows a significant decrease in sales compared to the same period last year. If from July to September 2020, 26.3 million devices were sold, then in the last quarter – 21.0 million. In other words, sales fell by 20.4%. In monetary terms, the market contracted by 11.0% to $ 9.2 billion. Analysts see this as a result of disruption to production and logistics processes.

HP remains the undisputed market leader. However, it has cut sales even more than the market as a whole has shrunk. More specifically, the decline reached 26.1%, which led to a decrease in the share of HP from 44.1% to 40.9%. The second place is occupied by Epson, whose share increased over the year from 15.8% to 20.0%. The share of the third-largest company Canon for the year decreased from 21.2% to 16.2%. Next comes Brother, whose share increased over the year from 7.3% to 8.9%. And the Kyocera Group closes the top five, the share of which increased from 1.5% and 2.1% over the year.

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.

Technically, this is a GaN charger equipped with a USB Type-C connector and capable of delivering power up to 35 watts. The novelty supports PPS, PD 3.0 and QC 3.0 fast charging standards, and its “monitor” glows in different colors depending on the operating mode. Yellow means normal charging, blue means fast, and green means super fast. Although it is not yet clear how much power the block produces in each of the modes.

The novelty was presented on the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform, while money is being raised for the release. At this stage, the price is $25 for sponsors, in the future it will increase to $49. By default, the Retro 35 is equipped with a US plug, but the manufacturer also offers adapters for sockets in other countries.

Note that the novelty has already collected more than $500 thousand, although the creators of the project requested only $4 thousand. And there are still 25 days of campaign ahead.
