HP has announced the addition of new products to its popular printer lineup that have a strong focus on sustainability. The new printers include the Color LaserJet 4200/4300 and the Color LaserJet Enterprise 5000/6000 and X500/X600. All the new printers come with HP’s next generation sustainable toner, which the company says delivers up to 27 percent reduced energy use and up to 78 percent less plastic in the packaging. The HP TerraJet cartridges also deliver sharper detail with up to 20 percent more printable colors and have a lower carbon footprint than previous products.
In other news, Uber is expanding its electric vehicle option to 14 more markets across the United States and Canada. Called Comfort Electric, the more sustainable option gives users the choice to ride in both electric and hybrid vehicles, as well as electric bikes and scooters. Uber says that bringing the electric option to more locations will help the company reach its goal of becoming a zero-emissions mobility platform. Some of the new markets with Uber’s Comfort Electric include New Orleans, Palm Springs, Salt Lake City and Toronto.
Lastly, Netflix is reportedly looking to bring its new video game platform to TVs. According to Bloomberg, app developer Steve Moser found code that references the video games coming to TVs in Netflix’s app. Netflix had originally launched video games, like Into the Dead 2 and Stranger Things 3, on smart phones and tablets in 2021. The idea behind the games was to keep users on the service as the prices rise by offering more than just shows and movies. With the games, users would be able to play them on the TV and control them using a smart phone.
