Google Photos Ends Unlimited Free In 2021: What You Should Know
Google announced this week that it is ending its offer of free and unlimited storage for “high resolution” photos on Google Photos. As of June 1, photos uploaded to Google Photos will be deducted from the 15 GB of storage offered on Google One. To go beyond, it will therefore necessarily go through a paid storage offer, 20 (100 GB), 30 (200 GB) or 100 euros (1 TB) per year. Only photos uploaded from a Google Pixel smartphone will continue to enjoy this unlimited free hosting offer after June 1.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra could end Galaxy Note’s main asset
As we gradually get closer to the announcement of the future Galaxy S21 range from Samsung, expected in January, it seems that the most upscale model is looking to walk on the Galaxy Note platforms. According to the Ice Universe leaker, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra would indeed be completely compatible with the S-Pen stylus of the Galaxy Note. If it is still unclear whether the stylus will be integrated into the smartphone, or simply compatible, this is a first step towards abandoning one of the main assets of the Galaxy Note, which could therefore be found on other smartphones from the Korean manufacturer. .
Apple M1 beats AMD’s Ryzen 9 5950X in early GeekBench results
Only a few days after the announcement of the Apple M1 chip, which equips the brand’s new MacBook Air, Macbook Pro and Mac mini, a first benchmark result shows its performance. Carried out and spotted on the Geekbench 5 tool, this test reveals a result of 1682 points in single-core and 7097 in multi-core for the Mac mini. A particularly high result, since it reaches the same level as AMD’s Ryzen 9 5950X in single core, with 1628 points. However, this is only a performance index on a single protocol and it will therefore be necessary to wait until full tests to find out what the Apple M1 has for sale.
