HP new Software install

Now I was an HP lover for many years until recently when HP decided to change the way they install software on their new printers. Now you are forced to use their HP smart application using the Microsoft store. 
The only problem I have with this is that you are forced to create an HP account to get access to your printer and that some organizations block access to the Microsoft store making installation a difficult process. Even if you try to install the software manually, HP does not make it easy to install the printer without the HP Smart application. So good luck with installing that software if you do not have access to the Microsoft store. And the lack of being able to add your printer to the WiFi is limited, making this a nightmare for network administrators.

North America EV Charging Standard

It looks like the EV charger is standing out because of the simplicity of having no moving parts, half of the size and it's twice as powerful.

Hopefully, it gets adopted but my question is since they adopted globally the c jack charger for portable phones, why shouldn't they follow the same guidelines.
