Yesterday, we reported on consumers planning to get an early jump on holiday shopping, and unsurprisingly after the nightmare of the supply chain last year, they aren’t the only ones. UPS has just released plans to hire roughly 100,000 workers to handle the holiday rush. The company will have openings for both full-time and part-time positions for jobs in the package handling and delivery sectors.
In other news, Google will not be releasing the next generation of the Pixelbook laptop. According to reporting conducted by The Verge, Google has dissolved the team responsible for the product’s development as part of a larger initiative to cut down on costs. The device was reportedly far enough along in development to be released in 2023. In an interview with The Verge, Google hardware chief Rick Osterloh said: “we are going to do Pixelbooks in the future.”
Lastly, Screen Innovations, in preparation for CEDIA 2022, has announced the release of the Solo 3 line of motorized projector screens. The company will begin accepting orders on October 3 just two days after the end of CEDIA, which is set to be hosted in Dallas from September 29 until October 1. The screens reach up to 200-inches in size and feature a new intelligent control board known as “Moab,” which according to the company allows for faster programming of setpoints, rotation, and motor reset.
