Here is episode 322. We promise, we won’t talk about football. Like every week, we’re here to find out what our columnists have found interesting in the technological news of the week. Thus with Aurélien and Xavier it will be about Twitch which was hacked a few days ago (125 GigaOcttes of data are in nature). Fairphone, the ethical and ecological manufacturer is releasing its new smartphone, we take stock in this issue. Nobody missed it, Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp broke down… a long outage… what more can we say than what has already been said everywhere? Surprise! Do you know Yubikey?
