USB keys to mine Bitcoin

The man managed to carry out a great operation by winning 6.25 bitcoins, the equivalent of around 200,000 euros.

The Marvel Movies Timeline Was Wrong on Disney+

The Disney + catalog contains almost all of the Marvel films and the streaming service displays the chronology of productions to help subscribers find their way around. However, an error had slipped into the classification since Black Panther arrived before Black Widow, while the adventures of the Black Widow take place before those of Black Panther.

Our tests of the week

LG gram: we love its weight/power ratio

Even if we regret the average quality of the webcam as well as the audio which struggles a little, the LG gram has generally won us over. LG offers here a laptop whose CPU performance is impressive for such a compact notebook. We appreciate its well-calibrated 16-inch diagonal screen, its large touchpad and its pretty design. The LG gram weighs only 1.19 kilos but remains very efficient and has excellent autonomy.

We were won over by the GeForce RTX 3050

With the GeForce RTX 3050, Nvidia keeps its promises and offers Full HD performance for a really reasonable price. This entry-level graphics card is equipped with an Ampere GA106 chipset, hardware decoding of the AV1 stream and supports ray-tracing and DLSS. Its consumption is reasonable and we appreciate its efficient cooling system and its low noise pollution. Only downside, titles using ray-tracing are almost playable, provided you use DLSS.

The Huawei P50 Pro is the best camera phone of the moment

The P50 Pro finally arrives in France and our test convinced us: Huawei offers a perfect smartphone for photo lovers. We were seduced by its design, the performance of the Snapdragon 888 and we were delighted to finally be able to enjoy stereo on a smartphone from the brand’s P range. The Huawei P50 Pro is unfortunately still deprived of Google and 5G services, and its price is still a little high in our opinion since it is available at a price of 1199 euros.

The Galaxy Tab A8 rather disappointed us…

Even if the Galaxy Tav A8 has the advantage of being available from only 249 euros, Samsung offers here a tablet that lacks power and is limited to really basic use. We appreciate its design and its correct autonomy, but the positive points stop there, especially since the competition offers much better for barely more. Go to our dedicated file to discover the complete test of Samsung’s new entry-level tablet.
