Mastodon has been successful since the takeover of Twitter

The arrival of Elon Musk at the head of Twitter will bring many changes to the social network. A new policy that worries many users who seek refuge elsewhere. Mastodon, a similar open source social network, is experiencing a massive influx of digital refugees. The company announced that 230,000 new accounts were created in one week and there are now 655,000 subscribers, a record. Nothing to worry about Twitter, but the phenomenon is interesting to observe.

The first Hyperloop will disappear

In 2018, Elon Musk’s Boring Company dug a first Hyperloop prototype in Hawthorne, near Los Angeles. This tunnel will soon disappear in favor of a parking lot dedicated to SpaceX employees. The Hyperloop project was not abandoned for all that (a section exists in Las Vegas), but this test segment that had become useless was finally abandoned.

AMD presents its new Radeon graphics cards

AMD has unveiled its two new graphics cards: the Radeon RX900 XT and the Radeon RX79000 XTX. Based on the RDNA 3 architecture, they target the high-end market. They attack the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 head-on. They offer similar performance but at a reduced price. The XTX is for example as powerful as the 4090, but 600 euros less. We will of course have to wait for the tests to know if we have the new master of the market here.
