This end of August 2022 is marked by the energy crisis. Electricity costs more. While the French government has succeeded in blocking the increase at 4% until the end of the year, it will not be able to stem the increase that is looming for next year. Households will see their energy bills (gas, electricity) skyrocket by several tens of percent. Analysts speak of an increase that could reach 50%. And yet, the French State and local authorities are pushing towards electrification of means of transport. The ecological bonus since 2020. Leasing purchase at 100 euros per month planned for 2023. Free parking for electric two-wheelers in Paris. This is puzzling. While waiting to find a solution, here are the three news items that marked the day of August 30.

This new protocol lifts some restrictions that will speed up file transfer. Find all of these changes in our article.

A new PlayStation 5 has just been launched by Sony
Throughout the commercial life of a console, the manufacturer continues to refine the internal architecture. The main components remain the same. The same goes for the external design of the console. On the other hand, some connectors can be modified. Motherboards can be reduced. The internal architecture can be optimized. This results in sub-versions with distinct serial numbers.
