2.6 million euros spent to obtain a copy of Jodorowsky’s Dune
Even if Alejandro Jodorowsky was never able to adapt Dune to the cinema, the director wrote a book in which we can discover his notes and the concept art planned for the film. The crypto collective Spice Dao has just announced on Twitter that it has bought the work for 2.66 million euros, convinced of having made a good deal and ready to embark on major projects. Unfortunately for buyers, buying the book from them does not grant them the copyright, and the copy won at auction is not a unique object.

New price increase at SFR
SFR’s fixed Internet customers have again received a letter warning them of a price increase of 3 euros per month.

For an additional 3 euros, subscribers can now call mobiles in Europe from their SFR Box. If you are not interested, you can counter this forced sale by refusing the offer before May 31, 2022.
