Leave Instagram

Every month more than 1 million people around the world search “how to delete my Instagram account”. According to a study by TRG DataCenters, this social network would have the dubious honor of being by far the one among the major platforms that its users most want to leave. The second provider, Snapchat, is far behind with 128,500 searches per month to carry out this operation. Twitter, which became X during the year, closes the podium with 123,000 searches.

As the name suggests, the Asus Zenbook 14 OLED has a great 3K OLED screen that allows for perfect blacks and a thickness of just 5mm.

Asus’ latest, the Zenbook 14 OLED, is a speed monster packed with a beautiful design and a superb 14-inch OLED touchscreen. As the name suggests, we are entitled to OLED (DELO in French), which allows perfect blacks and very thin screens, here barely 5mm. Its high graphics processing capacity is deceptive, according to our Geekbench 6 benchmarking: we’ve never been able to adequately run a AAA video game on this laptop. But “for the home,” as Asus promises, it delivers impeccable performance at an overall acceptable price.

In second and third place are Broadcom and TSMC, with profits of $575,000 and $456,000 per employee, respectively.

The PlayStation Portal is a “remote player” that is useless without WiFi and without the PS5 to which it is connected, but is capable of providing a good gaming experience if the network is suitable for it.

If you’re expecting PlayStation Portal to be a portable console like a Nintendo Switch or ROG Ally, you’ll be disappointed: this device recently launched by Sony is more of a “remote player.” Without WiFi and without the PS5 it’s connected to, it’s useless. Which doesn’t mean it doesn’t have any charm. We’re actually surprised by the graphical quality of the games on this screen, provided your WiFi network is suitable.
