This week the guys are back in full force, bringing you news on Libre Office, Ad-Blocking, and some awesome sounding Sci-Fi-ish research that has been taking place by the government!
With Libre Office 6.2.0 the last remaining hold out for Libre Office to be the Microsoft Office killer has now come out … the Ribbon. For years Libre Office has been a very good alternative to Microsoft’s expensive office suite but it’s interface was ripped straight from Office 2003. This suite is completely free, 100% compatible with Microsoft Office and now looks great too!
Hate ads? Well don’t block them if you use Spotify or you might find yourself with no access to your account. With an update to Spotify’s EUA if you try to block ads in Spotify they will terminate your account. Good thing the networks couldn’t monitor us changing channels during commercials in the 80s!
In a recent report it has been made known that from 2007 to 2012 the government researched everything from traversable wormholes and stargates to invisibility cloaks and psychic teleportation. Hint-Scientists at Northwestern University may be close to developing a real life version of every geeks desire… a working invisibility cloak.
The rumors have been flying lately about a smaller, completely portable version of the Switch possibly releasing this year. Since there hasn’t been an official announcement yet we at digitalSoup want to break it down and discuss if we even need a completely portable Switch.
