L’obtention du statut de candidat ne préjuge en rien de l’admission d’un pays dans l’UE - Crédits : Loic Seigland / iStock Le traité sur l’Union européenne pose une triple condition pour obtenir le statut de candidat : être un Etat, être “européen” (critère géographique qui reste relativement indéterminé) et respecter les valeurs de l’Union tout en s’engageant à les promouvoir. Ce sont les Etats membres de l’UE qui attribuent à l’unanimité le statut de candidat à un pays, à la lumière des recommandations de la Commission européenne. Avant d’adhérer à l’UE, plusieurs étapes doivent ainsi être franchies. À LIRE AUSSILe processus d’adhésion à l’Union...

The action in Canada this week is being described as the second phase of an operation that began last year.
Events were triggered when rightsholders led by Bell Media filed a criminal complaint against pirate IPTV service, Arubox TV.
Following an investigation by the Quebec Provincial Police, in 2023 the Office of Criminal Assets Recovery and Money Laundering carried out five searches; a condo in Laval and premises in Saint-Eustache and Brownsburg-Chatham were among the targets.
When some of those locations were targeted again this week, police may have returned to finish the job.

Il y a quelques années, j’avais expliqué comment installer Windows 11 avec VMware Fusion 12. Et la technique utilisée pose des problèmes quelques années plus tard : il est impossible de migrer une machine virtuelle. Petit résumé : avec VMware Fusion 12.2, la société a proposé une implémentation expérimentale du vTPM, la puce de sécurité (virtuelle) imposée par Microsoft. C’est exactement la méthode que j’expliquais à l’époque : il fallait ajouter managedVM.autoAddVTPM ="software" pour pouvoir démarrer. Cette solution a un gros problème, visible après coup : la clé de chiffrement n’est pas connue. Elle n’est pas dans le trousseau d’accès et elle est quelque part sur le...

L'inflation en Europe est devenue un sujet polémique suscitant des préoccupations croissantes en raison de plusieurs facteurs tels que la COVID-19, la reprise économique post-pandémique ou la guerre en Ukraine. Cette tendance inflationniste a des répercussions économiques significatives, notamment sur le pouvoir d'achat des ménages et la compétitivité des entreprises européennes. Face à cette situation, les responsables politiques envisagent des mesures telles que le resserrement de la politique monétaire, les contrôles des prix et la stimulation de la production nationale pour atténuer les pressions inflationnistes. Toutefois, trouver un équilibre juxtaposé entre la lutte contre l'inflation et...

It’s certainly been a few decades, but plenty of us remember a time before widespread access to broadband internet, when connections were generally made over phone lines using acoustic modems. In the 90s these could connect you to AOL and Napster well enough, but in the early 80s the speeds were barely enough to read text as it loaded. A company called Hayes set out to change this with some of the first useful, widely-available modems for the PCs at the time. While they couldn’t keep up with the changing times there’s still a retro community that has these antiques, and to modernize it a bit this drop-in replacement for the PCBs replicates these old modems almost exactly.
The new PCB is equipped with...

Origami can be an interesting starting point for a project, but we weren’t expecting [Thomas C. Hull] and [Inna Zakharevich]’s Turing complete origami computer.
Starting with the constraint of flat origami (the paper folds back on top of itself), the researchers designed a system that could replicate all the functionality of the previously-proven Turing complete Rule 110 automaton. The researchers walk us through the construction of AND, OR, NAND, NOR, and NOT gates via paper as well as the various “wires” and “gadgets” that connect the operators or filter out noise.
Everything ends up a large mess of triangles and hexagons with optional creases to make the whole thing work. While the origami...

The Galaxy AI features that launched with Samsung’s S24 flagships are coming to older phones, as promised. | Photo by Allison Johnson / The Verge Right now, you need a Galaxy S24 phone to use the very latest AI features from Samsung, but that’s changing next month. In late March, Samsung will extend Galaxy AI features to the S23 series — including the S23 FE — as well as recent foldables and tablets as part of the One UI 6.1 update. It’s all free for now, but after 2025 you might have to pay up.
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 are slated to get the update, as well as the Galaxy Tab S9, S9 Plus, and S9 Ultra. If Samsung wants to ship Galaxy AI to 100 million phones this year like it says it will,...

When cleaning out basements, garages, or storage units we often come across things long forgotten. Old clothes, toys, maybe a piece of exercise equipment, or even an old piece of furniture. [Ben] and [Hugh] were in a similar situation cleaning out an unused lab at the University of California Santa Barbara and happened upon an old refrigerator. This wasn’t just a mini fridge left over from a college dorm, though. This is a dilution refrigerator which is capable of cooling things down to near absolute zero, and these scientists are trying to get it to its former working state.
The pair are hoping to restore the equipment to perform dark matter experiments, but the refrigerator hasn’t been in use since about...

Taiwan has been caught between two global superpowers for decades. China sees the island as a breakaway province that will eventually return to its control, possibly by force. The U.S. sees it as a key democratic ally in the Eastern Pacific, as well as a strategic military outpost. Often overlooked, however, is how Taiwanese residents feel about the country’s precarious existence. Leo Chiang explores this in his Oscar-nominated documentary short called Island in Between. He was born in Taiwan and lives there now, but grew up in the states. Island in Between is set in the Kinmen Islands, which are nestled within the coast of mainland China. Chiang describes the place as a beautiful, natural environment that...

Death Valley is the hottest place on Earth and among the driest. Now visitors can kayak through parts of the park in the ephemeral Lake Manly . It emerged in August after Hurricane Hilary and has transformed the landscape. Traditionally, Death Valley gets about two inches of rain a year, according to National Parks Service Ranger Abigail Wines. In the last six months, however, that number has nearly tripled — receiving nearly five total inches. The lake formed in what’s called Badwater Basin, which has the lowest elevation in North America, or about 282 feet below sea level, Wines explains. Typically, you can only find a small spring surrounded by miles of flat, white salt plains. “What happened now is...

The home opener for the Dodgers is about a month away, which will bring heavy traffic. One plan to mitigate the congestion: a gondola from Union Station to Dodger Stadium, which would hold 30-40 people in each cabin. On Thursday, the LA Metro board will take a key vote on whether to proceed. Many residents near the stadium oppose the construction, which could cost half a billion dollars. “The argument proponents make is … wouldn't it be great if we could have some new and inventive form of transportation that would not only be cool — a gondola soaring above a freeway — but also be able to take cars off the road?” says Bill Shaikin, staff reporter for the Los Angeles Times. “Maybe some people who...

Four Tet “Daydream Repeat”
The first 30 seconds of “Daydream Repeat” go by about as you’d expect from Four Tet, with percussive elements gradually clicking together into an up-tempo groove. Then the noise kicks in. It’s like a screaming vacuum, a massive blade scraping metal, a blast disintegrating everything in its path. It comes and goes through the track like a brutal storm, broken up by sections led by a piano part that sounds very gentle and innocent. The piano is lovely but it’s that digital noise that allures, this sound that’s not quite musical but carries some recognizable humanity to it. It’s like some disruptive furious feeling getting in the way of, but also giving weight to, the...

Having a scope in a home lab used to be a real luxury, but these days, its fairly common for the home gamer to have a sophisticated storage scope (or two) hanging around.

[Kiss Analog] has a buyer’s guide for what to consider.
If you’ve already got a scope, it may have a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) function, and he talks about how it could be used in place of a spectrum analyzer or vice versa. But it really depends on what you’re planning on using it for. If you’re doing compliance testing for emissions, an analyzer is invaluable. If you...
