Voil the thin comment that our confrres of the Barber has russi to obtain to D `a spokesperson D `Apple whereas the number of cases D `notches D `iPhones fissurs multiplies. Since the dbut of the week, one dnombre dj 7 new tmoignages D `users reports/ratios in the press. Contrary to the dbut of the business O the incidents seemed localiss in the south of France, one finds Paris and in Parisian rgion of it, in Brittany, and in the Loire.

It (direction gnrale of competition, the consumption and the rpression of the frauds) opened a enqute to examine the diffrents tmoignages. Apple and envoy a request D `information with the Member States in their recommending to pass by Rapex, the systme D `alarm intracommunity on the products dangerous jugs.

Impossible still to draw the conclusions

the firm the apple speaks for the moment « D `incidental isols » and S `locks up in a badly felt dumbness. Remain qu `it is for the moment impossible to draw the least conclusion on this business. Nothing N `indicates that these breakings D `notches are not the rsultat of bad handling or shocks, D `exposure prolongs heat….

a dfaut on the sries of batteries N `is not to exclude for as much. One remembers qu `in 2006 Apple has procd with the recall of 2 million Sony batteries quipant his MacBook for problmes of overheating. (Eureka Press)

the BNF ngocierait with Google the numrisation dune started from its funds

Technologie – the daily newspaper the Platform rvle that Bibliothque Nationale of France would have entam discussions with Google in order to entrust to him the numrisation dune started from its funds. A dmarche that the BNF had jusqu prsent refuses.

the BNF (Bibliothque national of France) could entrust Google the numrisation D `part of its inheritance. C `is this qu `affirms the Platform in its dition D `aujourd `today.
