This Week in Imaging: Thank You for Your Patience

Among the many, many things that try men’s souls, high on the list is trying to renew a lapsed domain name, especially with an IT company located on the other side of world – in short, we apologize for our downtime this week.

That said, business continued as usual this week, with: 1) Canon continuing to wage legal war on sellers of third-party toner cartridges designed for laser printer it OEMs to HP Inc.; 2) voice-command printers continued to appear, with new voice capability announced by Epson; and 3) continued restructuring at Xerox.

The sweeping changes – and tumultuous events – at Xerox can all be traced back to a fateful day in November 2015 when corporate raider and controversial investor Carl Icahn took a 7.1-percent stake in Xerox. Since the Icahn-backed management takeover last year, it appears Xerox is being steadily “trimmed down” and restructured, with the company aiming to reach growth by 2021. In the meantime, Icahn has been quiet – he hasn’t issued a public statement concerning Xerox since May 2018. So he may be satisfied with the changes occurring at Xerox – at least for now.
