We talk about Apple, again. We talk about Tesla, again. But there are also video games.

Apple's augmented reality and prices. The new range of iPhones is pretty much what was expected - the group also released a new Apple Watch, more health-centric than expected. Several good connoisseurs of the brand have pointed out that it seems to insist on augmented reality and multiple sensors linked to a neural motor. Nomura believes that the next generation of terminals could be equipped with sensors capable of reproducing the external environment in order to increase augmented reality functionality. In the meantime, the design office has published an interesting graph on the evolution of the price of iPhones.

Hackers love German industries. It is not easy to be the world champion in the export of capital goods. A survey conducted by the trade association Bitkom revealed that seven out of ten German manufacturers have already faced cyber attacks, which have cost the sector some 43.4 billion euros (!) in the last two years alone. The study was conducted with 503 general managers or security managers. In line with other recent work in this area, Bitkom found that small and medium-sized companies were more vulnerable than those with more than 500 employees.

Ubi remains fashionable. After JP Morgan yesterday (recommendation raised to overweight and target raised from 71 to 130 EUR), another American bank, Morgan Stanley, took an interest in the French publisher. It started with "online weighting", targeting 100 EUR. For the design office, Ubi is a beautiful project that displays solid performance and will benefit from the transition to dematerialized content and a growing list of franchises. However, Ubi is already at its price since it deals with a premium over American counterparts, says Morgan Stanley.

Another one bites the dust. Don't you know Justin McAnear? Neither did we until this Tesla international finance manager resigned. He notified his team several weeks ago. The problem is that he is the latest in an important list of senior executives leaving the ship. A few days ago, the manufacturer's chief accountant, a veteran of the trade, had thrown in the towel just a month after joining the staff. Many voices are now calling for a major strengthening of management, so that the escapades of founder and president Elon Musk do not reflect too badly on the group.
