Libreoffice vs Apache OpenOffice: how to choose the right free office suite for you

By | April 20th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

When it comes to free office software, there are two main choices: LibreOffice and OpenOffice (or, to give it its proper name, Apache OpenOffice). The two are remarkably similar, so how can you choose the right one for you?

First, it's worth thinking carefully about whether you need desktop office software at all.

Better than their breakout hit album.

ZMF Debuts New Woods for Every ZMF Dynamic Headphone – AXPONA 2019

SE Edition of the ZMF Headphone

As a former student of the ancient Greek theater and film industry, ZMF headphones model names take me back to my younger-youth as an honorary Athenian. Flashing forward to present day, outward consciousness, and after giving many of the ZMF headphones a solid listen at AXPONA 2019, I can say that they all live up to their Hellenic names.

There is plenty of new happenings at ZMF Headphones to be excited about, so let’s get to it. The still-new Verite and Aeolus models still mop-up much of the attention at the ZMF booth with showgoers, but of particular interest to me are the new limited edition wood options now available for all of the Dynamic series of headphones.… Read the full article

A few weeks ago I received an unassuming enough looking email from Cameron Black of the PR firm Noyd Communications, asking me if I would like to experience a unique VIP on-stage experience for the Aerosmith: Deuces Are Wild concert at the MGM Park hotel’s Park Theater in Las Vegas. Wait what? Aerosmith? On-stage seats? I fuckin’ love Aerosmith!

In fact my love affair with Aerosmith goes back to my mid teens when I practically wore a hole in Live!Read the full article

Well-respected Apple watcher Ming-Chi Kuo says that the selfie camera will get a boost from 7 megapixels to 12 megapixels, 9to5Mac reports.
