It’s not just computer makers that are suffering. Even car companies have had to pause the production of vehicles because they can’t get access to chips.
Everyone from carmakers to smartphone companies are having the same problem: They can’t get enough semiconductors to put into their products. And don’t just think this means laptops and smartphones. This lack of chips has resulted in some major companies having to pause the manufacture of products you might not necessarily think of when it comes to semiconductors—like cars. Both GM and Ford, for example, have had to shut down the production of some of their models recently because they didn’t have the computer chips the cars required.
