CES 2021 - Microsoft announces the Surface Pro 7+ 2-in-1 PC and the deployment of its 85 ″ Surface Hub 2S

Microsoft is unveiling the Surface Pro 7+, a 2-in-1 laptop PC for business and education, which benefits from some improvements over version 7. The Surface Hub 2S digital board will ship in February. Rumors are rife that a Surface Pro 8 will be released soon. To be patient and to satisfy professionals, Microsoft unveils its Surface Pro 7+, a revised version of the Surface Pro 7 promised as more efficient.    Among the major evolutions of this new model, we note first of all the passage of the Intel Core processors from the 10th to the 11th generation. Storage will still be capped at 1TB, but a maximum of 32GB of RAM can now be installed, down from just 16GB previously. The SSD will also be removable and a Full HD webcam integrated into the Surface.  4G is now supported with a SIM card slot and eSIM support. Plus, battery life gets a big boost, from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm - on paper anyway - with a fast charge to 80% in an hour. The Surface 7 Pro +

With more than 4.5 million job seekers in category A in April, unemployment stands at its highest level since 1996 in France

A dizzying increase, linked to containment decreed to fight against the coronavirus. The number of job seekers registered with Pôle emploi in category A in France (excluding Mayotte) recorded its largest increase (+ 843,000 compared to March, or + 22.6%), in April, according to data published Thursday May 28 by the Ministry of Labor and Pôle Emploi.

With more than 4.5 million job seekers in category A in April, unemployment stands at its highest level since 1996 in France

The number of unemployed in this category thus reached its highest level since the start of the series in 1996, that is to say more than 4.5 million (4,575,500). Over three months, 1,065,200 additional job seekers are registered in this category, which groups people with no activity.

Three-quarters were enrolled in categories B or C the previous month

On the other hand, the number of job seekers in reduced activity (categories B, C) fell sharply (-633,600, or -29.9%) in April. Thus, the increase in the number of job seekers in category A observed in April was fueled by three-quarters by people registered in categories B and C in March.

In total, the workforce in categories A, B, C increased by 209,300 in April (i.e. + 3.6%). This constitutes "the largest monthly increase ever recorded" since the creation of these statistics in 1996 and this workforce crosses the six million mark for the first time, at 6.064 million.

This increase in the number of registrants in categories A, B, C, notes the Ministry of Labor, comes against a backdrop of declining entries at Pôle Emploi (-19.1%) and an even more marked drop in exits (-34 , 9%). Thus, although declining, inflows remain higher than outflows, which in turn reach their historic minimum.
