Samsung launches a campaign to fix your smartphones
Just like with Apple, you can buy spare parts from Samsung to repair your smartphone yourself. The manufacturer wants to go further and is currently offering to repair your Galaxy S20 or S21 screen for only $50, at over $200 usually. A promotion that only concerns the United States for now, but we can hope that it will one day land in France.
Windows 11 gives its File Explorer a facelift
File Explorer has dusted off in Windows 11, but Microsoft wants to move on. The Insiders have indeed discovered a new version of this tool. It offers a lighter left band, with your favorite files highlighted. But what changes everything is the appearance of tabs, just like in a web browser. So it is no longer necessary to juggle between multiple windows. This innovation should come with the big October update.
Google Maps includes tolls in your route
When planning a road trip, we may not consider the cost of tolls. An oversight that can weigh on your finances. Google Maps wants to remedy this and now the toll price is indicated per route. Is it worth taking the highway or is it better to take the minor roads? That’s your choice! This novelty is not yet available in Europe but could arrive in the coming weeks or months.
