    [Bon Plan] Cdiscount Mobile propose un forfait mobile à 9,99 euros par mois avec 100 Go de data !

    news.movim.eu / JournalDuGeek – 2 days ago - 08:36

Accéder à l'offre de Cdiscount Mobile

Dans ce forfait on retrouve les appels, SMS, MMS illimités en France, une enveloppe data de 100 Go en 4G en France, mais aussi 5 Go de data en roaming pour l’Europe (4G dans 30 pays + 8 Outre-mer). Cdiscount Mobile est sur le réseau NRJ mobile (sur le réseau Orange, SFR ou Bouygues Télécom).

Comment choisir un forfait mobile ?

Les offres et promotions de forfaits mobiles , ce n’est pas ce qui manque et c’est tant mieux : nous n’avons ni les mêmes besoins, ni les mêmes exigences et ni le même budget. Certains recherchent le tarif le plus bas coûte que coûte, d’autres un maximum de données mobiles, un forfait sans engagement, limité pour les plus jeunes, la possibilité de s’offrir un nouveau smartphone… Pour trouver chaussure à son pied, il reste indispensable de passer par la case : de quoi ai-je réellement besoin et quelles sont mes limites financières ?

Si votre budget est serré, peut-être vaut-il mieux se tourner vers une offre limitée qui vous permettra de faire un premier choix entre favoriser le temps d’appel ou la quantité de data disponible. Voyez aussi s’il est préférable d’opter pour une formule bloquée ou non afin d’éviter les frais supplémentaires et surprises sur votre facture mensuelle comme un dépassement de votre forfait ou encore la souscription à des services payants et achats. Il vaut mieux prévenir que guérir, ça vaut notamment le coup pour les parents à la recherche d’un forfait pour leurs enfants.

Êtes vous gourmands dans votre consommation de data ? Si vous êtes plutôt dans une utilisation assez raisonnable des données, rien ne sert de prendre plus de 100 Mo. C’est amplement suffisant pour consulter ses mails ou surfer de temps à autre sur le web. Pour consulter quotidiennement des sites et profiter un peu de musique ou vidéo en streaming , il vaut mieux se tourner vers des offres allant jusqu’à 30 Go par mois. Enfin, si vous utilisez votre smartphone comme un véritable petit ordinateur de poche (sites, streaming, réseaux sociaux, jeux en ligne) il faut penser à investir dans une formule à partir de 50 Go, voire 100 Go.

Enfin, toutes les offres ne présentent pas la même accessibilité ou suivi. Il existe des forfaits qui ne peuvent pas être souscrits en magasin, mais uniquement en passant par Internet. Souvent, ces formules ne disposent pas d’un service après-vente aussi efficace ou simple d’accès comme RED de SFR ou encore celles des opérateurs virtuels.

Comment changer d’opérateur en gardant son numéro ?

Le RIO (Relevé d’Identité Opérateur) est un identifiant unique, composé de 12 caractères (lettres ou chiffres), qui vous sera demandé par l’opérateur chez qui vous souhaitez souscrire. Pour l’obtenir, il vous suffit d’appeler le 3179. Un serveur vocal vous indiquera alors votre date de fin d’engagement, ainsi le numéro RIO de votre ligne. Notez qu’un SMS vous sera automatiquement envoyé avec toutes les informations communiquées par le serveur vocal.

    Samsung confirms February 11 event for its next flagship launch

    news.movim.eu / TechCrunch – Sunday, 5 January - 04:01

The Saturday night before CES seems like a less than ideal time to drop some big smartphone news — but it appears Samsung’s hand was forced on this one. Granted, the smartphone giant has never been great about keeping big news under wraps, but this morning’s early release of a promo video through its official Vimeo channel was no doubt all the motivation it needed.

The company has just made the February 11 date officially official for the launch of its upcoming flagship. As for what the flagship will be called, well, that (among other things) leaves some room for speculation. Rumors have pointed to both the more traditional S11, along with the more fascinating jump to the S20.

I’ve collated a bunch of the rumors into an earlier post . The TLDR is even larger screens across the board, coupled with a bunch of camera upgrades and a healthy battery increase. The invite art, which matches the earlier the video, appears to confirm the existence of two separate devices, with different dimensions. That could well point to the reported followup to the Galaxy Fold. In additional to better reinforced folding (a follow up to last year’s issues), the device reportedly adopts a clamshell form factor, more akin to the newly announced Motorola Razr.

More info (and rumors) to come. As ever, we’ll be there as the news breaks.

    Samsung’s latest flagship and foldable appear set for a Feb 11 announcement

    news.movim.eu / TechCrunch – Saturday, 4 January - 18:35

Odds are Samsung didn’t plan to leak news about its upcoming handsets the weekend before CES. But honestly, who knows at this point? A little early publicity never hurt. This one comes courtesy of a teaser video that got teased a little earlier than planned by way of the company’s official Vimeo channel. The leak was spotted by this individual on Twitter and posted to XDA Developers.

The video appears to be a promo for Unpacked, where Samsung is set to unveil its latest flagship, be it the Galaxy S11 or the Galaxy S20, depending which early reports you believe. The February 11 date lines up with some rumors (not to mention the synergy of 11), though others have had the company announcing the devices exactly a week later.

If past years are any indication, the event is likely set for San Francisco, keeping with the relatively recent trend of getting out in front of the Mobile World Congress news deluge by a couple of weeks.

The video animation also appears to point to a pair of devices. There’s a standard rectangle, likely representing the flagship device and a squarer foldable successor to last year’s troubled Galaxy Fold. Here are a bunch of rumors about the former. As for the latter, early speculation has pointed to a cheaper device, with a classic phone clamshell folding mechanism, akin to the recently announced Motorola Razr .

Notably, Samsung also recently announced a pair of “Lite” versions of its its flagship S10 and Note 10 devices.

    Calculez l’impact climatique de votre téléphone Android avec Mobile Carbonalyser

    news.movim.eu / Korben – Thursday, 2 January - 08:00

Vous êtes-vous déjà demandé ce que consommait réellement votre smartphone en termes d’électricité ? Quel était son impact niveau énergétique ?

Si la réponse est oui, vous pourriez avoir envie de tester Mobile Carbonalyser . Et si la réponse est non, vous pourriez quand même avoir envie de savoir (le gars qui force ce n’est pas mon genre). Le service se déclinait déjà sous forme d’ extension Firefox et est depuis peu disponible en application mobile pour Android.

Nous pouvons tous obtenir facilement quelques informations de consommation assez basique, par exemple en calculant le nombre d’heures durant lesquelles notre téléphone recharge en fonction du prix de l’électricité, de la durée, etc. Et si vous laissez le chargeur dans la prise même sans le téléphone, sachez que ça consomme aussi (pas beaucoup, mais quand même).

Regarder cette vidéo tuera des pandas

Par contre il est parfois plus difficile de calculer d’autres aspects, notamment tout ce qui est basé sur la quantité des données échangées lorsque nous surfons , que nous utilisons une application ou regardons une vidéo. Ce sont tous ces échanges qui vont être comptabilisés dans l’appli pour obtenir un total de mégaoctets générés par votre portable.

L’application va ensuite transformer tout ça en nombre de kWh (kilowatt heure) consommés et vous donner les équivalents en termes de grammes CO2 générés (le fameux gaz qui fait des cerfs), de km parcourus en voiture et de recharges téléphones.

Concrètement une fois que vous aurez installé Mobile Carbonalyser vous n’avez rien à faire que de lancer l’analyse et utiliser votre mobile comme vous le feriez en temps normal. Puis de consulter régulièrement les résultats qui vous afficheront votre conso, mais aussi les sites qui ont le plus fort impact, le temps passé sur votre téléphone …

L’un des intérêts du projet est qu ‘il permet de visualiser plus concrètement notre impact numérique au quotidien . Parce que regarder une conférence de 4h sur YouTube … comment dire … c’est difficile de se rendre compte à combien ça équivaut en distance voiture. Enfin perso je n’y arrive pas encore vraiment (« Woaw, je viens de passer les 28 min de vidéo, je viens de générer autant de CO2 que si j’avais été faire les courses à Cora. Je suis un monstreeeeeee . »).

Ce que l’on sait sur la méthodologie c’est que le calcul de la consommation électrique est basé sur le modèle « 1byte » élaboré par The Shift Project , les gens à la base de l’application. Ce modèle prend en compte la consommation des centres de données (data centers), les infrastructures réseau (wifi ou non …) et le modèle de votre téléphone.

I§nterface Carbonalyser pour mobile

Et pour ce qui concerne les infos personnelles sachez que tous les calculs se font en local sur votre terminal, rien n’est transmis à l’extérieur . Mais vous pouvez tout de même renseigner votre pays d’habitation pour affiner les calculs selon la réalité électrique de votre patelin. Ce que je vous conseille de faire sinon vos équivalents CO2 seront basés sur une moyenne mondiale qui est plus de 10 fois supérieure à ce qui existe en France.

Le code source peut être consulté sur GitHub .

Mobile Carbonalyser n’est pas parfait et il ne faut pas prendre les résultats comme une critique envers votre consumérisme numérique, le but c’est de (peut-être) vous aider dans votre réflexion personnelle sur le sujet. Cela dit c’est toujours un bon moyen visuel d’avoir une base d’information sur l’impact réel que nous avons.

Je vous laisse, j’ai des arbres à planter maintenant et ça n’a rien à avoir avec une quelconque compensation écologique OK ? C’est juste que j’ai développé une passion pour les branches depuis peu.

1. Uber founder Travis Kalanick is leaving the company’s board of directors

Uber founder and former CEO Travis Kalanick will officially resign from the board as of December 31, to “focus on his new business and philanthropic endeavors,” according to a company press release.

Kalanick, who was forced out as Uber CEO and eventually replaced by Dara Khosrowshahi, has been in the process of selling off his considerable ownership stake in the company. In fact, it looks like Kalanick has now sold all his remaining stock.

2. Plenty of Fish app was leaking users’ hidden names and postal codes

Dating app Plenty of Fish has pushed out a fix for its app after a security researcher found it was leaking information that users had set to “private” on their profiles. Before the fix, the app was silently returning users’ first names and postal ZIP codes, according to The App Analyst .

3. As DraftKings finds an exit, a reminder of what could have been

DraftKings, a betting service focused on fantasy sports, will go public via a reverse merger. Not too long ago DraftKings and its erstwhile rival FanDuel were ubiquitous on television; now the two companies are fractions of what they once were. (Extra Crunch membership required.)

5. Fyre Festival meets Mr. Bone Saw

Connie Loizos looks at the controversy around the three-day-long MDL Beast Festival in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The event, promoted by a number of celebrities and social media influencers, aimed to promote the efforts of its de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (known as MBS).

6. A false start for foldables in 2019

A year from now, the Samsung Galaxy Fold’s turbulent takeoff may well be a footnote in the largest story of foldables. For now, however, it’s an important caveat that will come up in every conversation about the nascent product category. (Extra Crunch membership required.)

7. Micro-angelo? This 3D-printed ‘David’ is just one millimeter tall

3D printing has proven itself useful in so many industries that it’s no longer necessary to show off, but some people just can’t help themselves. Case in point: this millimeter-tall rendition of Michelangelo’s famous “David” printed with copper using a newly developed technique.

    A false start for foldables in 2019

    news.movim.eu / TechCrunch – Monday, 23 December - 17:38

A year from now, this is likely to have all blown over. A year from now, the Samsung Galaxy Fold’s turbulent takeoff may well be a footnote in the largest story of foldables. For now, however, it’s an important caveat that will come up in every conversation about the nascent product category.

How history remembers this particular debacle will depend on a number of different factors, the ultimate success of the category chief among them. If foldables do takeoff, the Galaxy Fold’s very public false start will be remembered as little more than a blip. There’s plenty of reasons to root for this — devices have seemingly hit the upper threshold of product footprint. If the trend toward larger screens continues, it’s going to take a clever form factor like this to accommodate that need.

If foldables are relegated to the dustbin of history, however, the Fold misfire will take much of the heat. I t’s clear that a trail of broken units will have little impact on Samsung’s bottom line. Two Galaxy Note 7 recalls were a testament to the hardware giant’s resilience in the public eye, after serving as a rounding error in the company’s bottom line that year. Sending some half-baked models to a handful of reviews wasn’t nearly as major of a mistake, but the category, much like the Fold itself, is in a fragile state.

    This Week in Apps: the year and decade in review, gaming acquisitions and a Facebook OS

    news.movim.eu / TechCrunch – Saturday, 21 December - 16:01

Welcome back to This Week in Apps, the Extra Crunch series that recaps the latest OS news, the applications they support and the money that flows through it all.

The app industry is as hot as ever, with 194 billion downloads last year and more than $100 billion in consumer spending. People spend 90% of their mobile time in apps and more time using their mobile devices than watching TV. Apps aren’t just a way to waste idle hours — they’re big business, one that often seems to change overnight.

In this Extra Crunch series, we help you to keep up with the latest news from the world of apps, delivered on a weekly basis.

Headlines

The top apps of the year… and the decade

App Annie this week released its list of the year’s top apps . And this time around, it also included the top apps of the past 10 years in its analysis. Outside of games, Facebook dominated the decade, the firm reported. It ran the four most-downloaded apps of the decade, including Facebook (#1), Messenger (#2), WhatsApp (#3), and Instagram (#4). Other communication and social media apps were also among the most popular over the past 10 years, claiming seven out of the 10 top spots, including Snapchat (#5), Skype (#6) and Twitter (#10). Social video platforms TikTok and YouTube also placed on the list at #7 and #9, respectively. And yes, it’s pretty notable that TikTok — an app that only launched outside of China in 2017 — is one of the most-downloaded apps of the past decade. Meanwhile, even though dating app Tinder was the most profitable app this year, Netflix was the No. 1 app by all-time consumer spend over the past decade.

2019 app downloads and consumer spending

Related to its round-up of the top apps, App Annie also offered some preliminary data on downloads and consumer spending in 2019 . Its current figures don’t include calculations from third-party app stores in China, (like those referenced above), which App Annie tends to provide in its annual State of Mobile report. Instead, App Annie reports we’re on track to see 120 billion apps from Apple’s App Store and Google Play by the end of 2019, a 5% increase from 2018. Consumer spending was also up 15% year-over-year to reach $90 billion, it says. Expect a full analysis to come in Q1 2020.

Facebook still sat at the top of the charts for 2019. The company’s Messenger app was the most downloaded non-game app of 2019, followed by Facebook’s main app, then WhatsApp. Tinder switched places with Netflix for the No. 1 spot on this chart — last year, it was the other way around. (For more details, TechCrunch’s full review is here .)

2019 in Mobile Gaming

According to a year-end report by GamesIndustry.biz , mobile gaming grew 9.7% year-over-year in 2019 to reach a market value of $68.2 billion. The gaming market as a whole was worth $148.8 billion, the report said. Smartphone games were the biggest piece of this figure, at $54.7 billion, compared with $13.4 billion for tablet games. That means smartphone games are still bigger than PC, browser PC games, boxed and downloaded PC games, and console games.

Big moves in cloud gaming

To beef up its new cloud gaming service Stadia , Google this week bought game development firm Typhoon Studios , who were set to release their cross-platform title and first game, Journey to the Savage Planet. Google had said it wants to build out a few different first-party studios to release content on Stadia, which is where this acquisition fits in. Meanwhile, Facebook this week acquired the cloud gaming startup, PlayGiga, which had been working with telcos to create streaming game technology for 5G.

Stadia has a big mobile component, as its controller can play games on compatible mobile devices like Pixel phones. Gaming has been a big part of Facebook’s mobile efforts, as not only a platform where games can be played, but also a place to watch live game streams , similar to Twitch. But the big gaming trend of the past year (which will continue into 2020) is cross-platform gaming — thanks to games like Fortnite, Roblox and PUBG Mobile, as well as devices like Nintendo Switch, gamers expect to continue playing no matter what screen they happen to be using at the time.

Apple Developer app expands support for China

Apple launched a dedicated mobile app for its developer community in November, with the arrival of the Apple Developer app, which was an upgraded and rebranded version of Apple’s existing WWDC app. The app lets developers access resources like technical and design articles, as well as read news, watch developer videos, and enroll in the Apple Developer program. Now that the program is open to China through the app, Apple announced this week .

From the app, developers in China can start and complete their Apple Developer membership and pay with a local payment method on their iPhone or iPad. They can also renew their membership, to keep their account active. Apple has been heavily investing in growing its international developer community by launching developer academies and accelerators in key regions, among other initiatives. Over the past year, Apple grew its developer community in China by 17%, the company earlier said.

So much for nostalgia, Rewound gets yanked from the App Store

We hope you downloaded this fun app when we told you to in last week’s column! Because now it’s gone.

Rewound, briefly, was a clever music player app that turns your iPhone into a 2000’s era iPod, complete with click wheel nav. The developer was able to sneak the app into the App Store by not including the actual iPod UI, which infringes on Apple’s own product design. Instead, the UI pieces were hosted off-site — on Twitter accounts, for example. Users could find them and download them after they installed the app. Technically, that means the App Store app itself wasn’t infringing, but Apple still kicked it out . The developer also charged a fee to access the Apple Music features, which may have been another reason for its removal.

It’s no surprise Apple took this step, but the developer seems confused as to how the app could be approved then pulled later on, even though it hadn’t changed. That’s actually par for the course for Apple’s subjective, editorial decisions over its App Store, however. Now Rewound, which has 170K+ users after only a few days , will focus on a web app and Android version .

Facebook is building its own OS so it can ditch Android
