Accessibility—A Increasing Concern

June 2022 observed the arrival of the deadline established by the European Accessibility Act (EAA) for EU member states to compose their have electronic accessibility procedures into regulation. This is an important worldwide milestone for electronic accessibility and delivers a very clear concept about how seriously the problem of inclusivity requires to be taken by people production and offering digital goods close to the planet.

What was once a little something thought of “nice to have” is now staying prepared into legislation, and this is a large deal—not only is this now secured by regulation, but it also has a direct affect on brand name name and picture. Nobody wants to be the brand caught out for not adhering to the policies when it arrives to any exercise, primarily when it will come to social duty and inclusivity.

For those creating accessibility technologies, this legislative action adds an excess layer of urgency to their do the job. Substitutes are no longer an choice as they simply just won’t go authorized muster. This directive establishes a need for good quality, regulation and consistency, which demands additional from all associated in the design course of action.

Voice, Graphic And What’s Up coming

Much-discipline voice technological innovation (capable of functioning across a noisy space) is one particular case in point among the different methods of delivering accessibility—its aid to those with sight troubles or mobility constraints is invaluable—building this sort of voice abilities into client electronics will increase the quality of practical experience throughout the most inclusive cross-area of society.

In the potential, of course, far-industry voice will not be the only process by which we can utilize accessibility to equipment this sort of as telephones, TVs and smart house assistants. Emerging lower frame-rate imaging technologies is enabling devices to identify human varieties entering a home, their area, gestures and other attributes—features that will lead to accessibility, convenience and strength use.

Transferring away from the more standard fields of visible and aural stimuli, haptic engineering provides another dimension of comments for these with impairments to their sight or hearing. Tactile sensors in a device can answer to tension exerted by the person, featuring “physical” comments as a result of resistance, vibration, or a collection of faucets or buzzes, as an alternate to visual signage or spoken instructions.

As sensor and on-gadget processing technology turn into a lot more advanced, attributes such as these will grow to be extra quickly obtainable on a mass scale, hence growing the accessibility of wise things for all. All of this, nonetheless, does appear at a price tag, the two in the literal feeling and in conditions of engagement—as people have to make a leap of religion to invest in discovering new technological innovation and its abilities.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022 hands-on

Foldable screens are officially here to stay. Years of subpar foldable phone iterations have finally yielded worthwhile devices like Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4, whose flexible displays have legitimate productivity and portability benefits. Not to be outdone, PC makers have also jumped on this trend by producing full-size foldable computers. However, as we figured out with 2020’s Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, they still had a long way to go.

Fortunately, Lenovo has gone back to the drawing board and refined its foldable PC for 2022, promising a larger display and faster performance within a slimmer body that can be easily folded up and packed into a small bag. We got some early hands-on time with this $2,499 computer ahead of its November release, and while it’s still shaping up to be a niche product, it’s still awesome to see in action.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold price and release date

The ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022 is currently slated to launch in November 2022 with a starting price of $2,499. There will also be a $2,999 model for those who want a pen and keyboard included.

For the uninitiated, the first Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold was essentially a giant 13-inch Windows tablet that could serve as a huge canvas for drawing or watching movies when fully expanded, or act as a laptop when you fold it at a 90-degree angle and plop a keyboard on one half of the screen. And when you fully close it up, it’s about as small as an average sized book, and more portable than a typical laptop.

There’s a lot to like about this design on paper, but as we learned while reviewing it, the original 2020 version of the X1 Fold simply wasn’t ready for everyday consumers. Windows 10 wasn’t optimized for foldable screens at the time, resulting in a frustrating and oftentimes buggy software experience that made it hard to use even the most basic apps. Factor in average performance and short battery life, and you had a device that was extremely hard to justify for its steep $2,499 price tag — and that’s without the optional keyboard.

Mike Andronico/CNN

The 2022 Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold is just as expensive — and will likely remain a niche — but I immediately noticed significant improvements when I got my hands on one at an early preview event in New York City. The first thing that caught my eye was the new display, which isn’t just significantly bigger (16 inches versus 13.3 inches) but also more attractive and immersive, thanks to much slimmer bezels around the screen.

The X1 Fold’s OLED display looked great in action, pumping out bold colors whether I was watching a vivid Dolby Vision video of an amusement park or simply admiring the deep reds and blacks on the PC’s wallpaper. I especially liked using the big screen vertically in portrait mode — a new feature for this year’s model — as I had

Richardson Electronics New Products Should Drive Growth Right Through A Recession (RELL)

Don White

A year ago, I wrote an article about Richardson Electronics (NASDAQ:RELL) titled Richardson Electronics Is Cutting Edge, Profitable, And Growing Yet Trades Below Book. At that time, I categorized it as a turnaround play. A stock that had performed poorly for years and been left for dead by investors, despite strong recent evidence of a turnaround. The stock was trading at $8.00 and I placed a one year price target of $14.00. It is now one year later and the stock has risen to $15.79.

If you are a value investor, it’s still a value. It’s trading at a run rate PE ratio of about 10 despite increasing growth. But RELL is now also in the early stage of full throttle growth. It has at least four major new product lines just coming to market or in beta testing in secular growth industries. Three already have large orders. All are potentially large markets that are less cyclical than most. In fact, three of them are EVs, wind power, and lab grown diamonds.

I believe the opportunity today is as great as a year ago despite the doubling of the stock. This is due to the transition to a growth company. The stock trades at a forward PE ratio of about 10. The market has recognized the turnaround but not the growth story.


Richardson is an electrical components manufacturer and distributor based in La Fox, Illinois. It designs or manufactures over half its products and serves as a distributor for the rest. The distributor business is value added so it gets better margins than most distributors. They often help their customers with engineering or other custom services. The customer base is diversified with its largest customer at about 10% of revenues. It’s also very diversified by the industries of its customers.

The company was founded in 1947 by the current CEO Ed Richardson’s father. Mr. Richardson has been with the company about 60 years and is now 80. His mother worked there until she was 95 and he does not plan to retire. Mr. Richardson owns 15.2% of the common stock and 98.2% of the Class B common stock. That gives him control with 62.5% of the voting rights. He plans a book shortly about the company history called Never Give Up.
