- Japan wants the end of floppy disks The Japanese government intends to put an end to the use of diskettes imposed by several laws. No less than 1,900 texts concern how data can be shared with the government, many of which stipulate the use of diskettes or CD-ROMs, downloading data from the Internet not being authorized for security reasons. To begin this work, the ministry in charge of digital has published a decree to eliminate the use of obsolete technologies, including floppy disks.
- Lenovo updates its ThinkPad X1 Fold . Laptop and tablet with a foldable screen, the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Fold is surprising, but sports an ambitious form factor.
The manufacturer presented the 2022 version of the terminal which embeds Intel Core U-series i5 and i7 chips from 12thgeneration, up to 32GB LPDDR5 memory and up to 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD storage. Its screen gains in size with 16.3 inches against 13.3 inches previously. An effort has been made on the thinness of the laptop because it is only 8.6 mm thick when unfolded, and 17.4 mm when folded.
On the other hand, it is a little heavier than its predecessor with 1.28 kg alone and 1.9 kg with the keyboard and the support. Available in the United States for 2,499 dollars excluding VAT, it will not be marketed in Europe until January 2023, but the prices are not yet known.
