Electric scooter: the 125cc Yamaha EC01 is approaching commercialization
Already announced two years ago, the Yamaha EC01 electric scooter has not yet been marketed by the Japanese manufacturer. So much so that we could believe until then that it was only a concept. However, as insurer Bennetts reveals, the scooter could well be released this year. Yamaha has in fact registered the E01 trademark with the European Intellectual Property Office. Something to reassure about a possible marketing of two-wheelers.
Smartphone or PC: LastPass Free will force you to choose to stay free
Until now, one of the main advantages of LastPass over competing password managers has been that it is free. It could indeed be used on both PC and smartphone without spending a single penny. However, in a month this will no longer be possible. Users of the free version of the platform will have to choose between an installation on their PC or their smartphone, but not on both. To use the software on both types of devices, you will need to upgrade to the Premium subscription, at three euros per month.
Windows 10 21H1 will be a minor update: changes will wait
Like every semester, Microsoft is planning a new update for its operating system, Windows 10. That of the first semester, soberly called Windows 10 21H1, should however be a minor update, without major changes compared to the previous one. According to Windows Central, it will indeed be necessary to wait for the second update of the year, 21H2, to take advantage of more substantial updates. For the first, Microsoft would be satisfied with fixes and very rare new features.
