We tell you more about the temporality of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series

While the Obi-Wan Kenobi series will be released on May 27, director Deborah Chow took advantage of an interview with Entertainment Weekly to explain why the series takes place 10 years after Episode III. The director explains that the program will endeavor to describe the moment of transition which allows Obi-Wan to emerge from a particularly dark period of life following the events of episode III and to move from pain to wisdom.

How do Tesla batteries degrade over time?

A report from Tesla has just revealed in detail how the company’s batteries degrade over time and distance traveled. We note in particular in this document that for the Tesla Model S and X, the capacity of the battery drops rapidly during the first thousand kilometers, before starting to drop more linearly thereafter. Battery age does not appear to be considered in this new report.

Darth Vader’s death could have been very different…

If you’re a Star Wars fan, you know that Darth Vader got his burns from falling into the lava of Mustafar where ” he becomes Darth Vader without a trace of Anakin “. But did you know that this tragic destiny forming a loop comes from a text written in 1983, well before the prelogy? If George Lucas had envisioned another death for Darth Vader, he ended up opting for this ‘closing the loop’ ending, where Darth Vader is born in flames after being saved by Luke Skywalker.

Our tests and files of the week

The Yeedi Vac 2 Pro did not convince us

Even if we recognize that the Vac 2 Pro cleans quite well and that its autonomy is largely acceptable, this Yeedi robot did not convince us and we admit to finding better among competitors for the same price. The washing function is useless, the mobile application is largely perfectible and the navigation is imperfect. Sold at 379.99 euros, the Vac 2 Pro is still a bit expensive for what it offers.

The Dell Alienware X14 is perfect for gamers on the move

With its 14-inch format, its performance and its contained weight, the Dell Alienware X14 is ideal to be taken everywhere. This gaming laptop will delight you with its bright screen, its RGB keyboard, its complete connectivity and its efficient cooling. We regret the sometimes very high noise level and the absence of fingerprints. Note that this PC for players is not given since it is sold from 1947 euros.
