While Health Insurance is the target of a new attack, Anonymous manages to hack the FSD servers and the European Union wants to fight against smartphones with integrated batteries, this is the recap of the week.

Bad news for Amazon Prime subscribers, the service makes unsubscribing more and more complicated. While the European Union plans to force the return of removable batteries in smartphones, all charges against IPTV pirate Hamid Al-Hamid have finally been dropped. As Anonymous continues its cyber war against Russia, the Ameli site is once again the target of hackers. Welcome to the recap of the week.

An IPTV pirate escapes all of his legal sanctions

In 2016, IPTV hacker Hamid al-Hamid was sentenced to two and a half years in prison and fined around 20 million euros for broadcasting beIN Sports content on his IPTV channel. The owner of the Advanced TV Network (ATN) service, however, seems to have pulled through. Indeed, the pirate denied having committed any illegal act by recalling that Qatar had only joined the Rome Convention in 2017, a year after his arrest. As a result, the charges against Hamid al-Hamid were dropped entirely.

Towards the end of smartphones with integrated batteries?

For many years, telephones have been systematically equipped with built-in batteries. But that era could be coming to an end. Indeed, the European Parliament has said it plans to make removable batteries mandatory soon, in a bid to extend the life of electronic devices. Right to Repair specifies that the European Parliament must now come to an agreement with the European Council. The entry into force would be scheduled for January 1, 2024 so that manufacturers have time to comply with the new regulations.

Our tests of the week

Motorola Edge 30 Pro: an almost perfect smartphone

For a very reasonable price and despite an increase of 100 euros compared to the Edge 20 Pro, Motorola offers here a quality smartphone thanks to its well-calibrated screen, its autonomy, its fast charge and its sleek and efficient interface. We appreciate the many accessories, including the headphones provided. The Edge 30 Pro is also a good photophone, if we stick to the main sensor and the ultra wide-angle sensor. We regret the disappearance of the telephoto module and the noise of the digital zoom.

For 1099.90 euros and even if the Xiaomi 12 Pro is a good smartphone, we would like to find fewer bugs and stability problems.
