It’s confirmed, Tesla cars and smartphones will connect to Starlink satellites
We suspected it, it is now confirmed. While Starlink has so far only been deployed to provide home Internet access, via a fixed network, Elon Musk has announced that a deployment is planned not only for smartphones, but also for Tesla automobiles. Concretely, the second version of Starlink will make it possible to take advantage of the satellite network without having to use a dish. The speed will however be limited to 2 to 4 Mb/s.
Tesla launches its Model Y Propulsion in France: price, delivery date, autonomy, everything you need to know
Tesla is again in question with the announcement of the launch, in France, of the manufacturer’s SUV, the Tesla Model Y Propulsion. Since Friday, it is now possible to place an order for the vehicle which is displayed at a price of 49,990 euros, or 47,990 euros taking into account the ecological bonus. As a reminder, the SUV offers a weight of 1909 kg, an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and a range of 455 km.
The great anything from Google on Duo and Meet
While Google announced a few months ago the merger of Duo and Meet, the implementation is proving more complicated than expected. The editor offers us a beautiful imbroglio by multiplying the applications with sometimes very similar icons. Something to confuse. Now, three applications are offered: Duo, Meet and Meet (classic). The first two apps are identical and both launch Google Meet, but the latter is for the classic, business-oriented version of the service. In short, it is still not easy.
