Hey there listeners. It’s Brett Molina. Welcome back to Talking Tech now is probably not the best time to be the owner of a Canon printer. Apparently because of the semiconductor chip shortage, Canon is having to help a bunch of customers that are upset because its own ink cartridges are malfunctioning on their printers. And they’re recognizing these cartridges as fake. One of my colleagues writes about this in a story that you can read on tech.USAtoday.com. There was a big outcry on social media. Canon printers, basically what was happening is they couldn’t confirm that the Canon branded ink cartridges that work with those printers were actually official. They were recognized as fake and therefore they didn’t work. And a big reason for this is that the chips that Canon uses to verify them are in such short supply. So imagine you have a Canon printer, you go to buy a Canon ink cartridge, you pop it in and the printer keeps telling you it doesn’t work because it’s not a real Canon cartridge.
