Apple: the next iMac would adopt a new design and an Apple Silicon processor this year

For the first time since 2012, Apple would finally renew the design of its iMac. In 2021, Apple is preparing at least three new desktop Macs. According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, who also released information on future MacBook Pros and iPhone 12 successors in recent days, Apple will announce an iMac and two Mac Pros in 2021.

Mark Gurman indicates that the borders of his screen would be much smaller, like Pro Display XDR, the ultra high-end screen launched by Apple with the Mac Pro in 2019. The back of the computer would also abandon the curvature in favor of a completely flat frame.  This new iMac would also be equipped with an Apple Silicon processor, probably a more powerful chip than the Apple M1 chip currently present in the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Mac mini.

Coronavirus: A fund to advance money to small businesses | France

Some companies are in difficulty, but are not eligible for the national solidarity system. To compensate for this lack, a fund which will allow up to 10,000 euros to be paid to companies with fewer than 10 employees has been launched in the Pays de la Loire region, the region's president announced on Tuesday.

A fund to advance money to small businesses

"What I feared is that, for example, a trader who has a turnover drop of 40%, and suddenly, he is not helped at all", explained Christelle Morance (LR ) about the national solidarity fund. The latter offers a subsidy of 1,500 euros, as soon as a small business can prove that it has lost at least 50% of its turnover.

This regional system is intended to be very simple and rapid, with a declaration on honor made by the business manager, ensuring that he does not benefit from the national system. The amount loaned will range from 3,500 euros for companies with less than 50,000 euros in turnover per year, to 10,000 euros for those with more than 100,000 euros. They will then have between one and three years to repay.

Departments and agglomerations mobilized

"This fund will be endowed with 32 million euros initially," continued Christelle Morance, explaining that the Banque des Territoires and the region contributed half, while the five departments that make up the Pays-de-la- Loire and the intermunicipalities brought the other half. Each community contributes up to two euros per inhabitant and the money it advances is allocated to businesses in its territory.

"All of the major cities in each department: Nantes, La Roche-sur-Yon, Angers, Le Mans and Laval said yes, and today more than two-thirds of the intermunicipal authorities are responding favorably and I think we will arrive to 100% of intermunicipal links in a few days, "said the regional president. The project will start in mid-April.
