Interesting Internet Finds – WE August 16, 2013

I have published Interesting Internet Finds monthly in the Boca Raton Computer Society’s Boca Bits monthly newsletter, and share them through the APCUG PUSH program with other computer/technology user group newsletter editors, for some time now.

Each month, I have many more than I can use, so have decided to start publishing some of those that were not used here. I do not go into much depth about each one, I just put them out there for you to check out yourself.

http://lifehacker.com/battle-of-the-office-suites-microsoft-office-and-libre-1147940828
I use MSOffice at work, but LibreOffice most of the time for personal stuff. I have found that if I want to exchange between the two, it is best to keep things very basic and then format within the one I export to, otherwise there is a lot more editing to be done.
