Say goodbye to old radar panels
The old radar panels installed on the roads of France since 2010 are about to disappear for good in favor of two new models. These new versions have the merit of being more understandable for foreign motorists since they are now devoid of mention in French. These two new signs began to be deployed by Road Safety in 2017 and should replace the old ones by the end of the year.

Samsung Galaxy A33 5G: a remarkable quality/price ratio
Samsung takes up the challenge of offering a pleasant and qualitative smartphone for 369 euros. We appreciated its AMOLED screen, its performance, its autonomy and its fingerprint sensor placed under the screen. Of course, the Galaxy A33 5G also has weak points.
