Download Official Quick Start Guides for Microsoft Office 2013

Office 2013 is now up for grabs for everyone, but since it comes with so many great improvements, some beginners may have a hard time discovering them all.

That’s why Microsoft has decided to release some quick start guides for all those who wish to explore the new features available in Office 2013 without wasting too much time. Dedicated guides are available for each productivity tool bundled into Office, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. They come with a remarkable amount of information, including useful tips, shortcuts and screenshots to present specific features.

Since they are delivered in PDF format, you don’t need to download any other software solution to view the guides on Windows 8, as they’re loaded by default with the built-in Reader app. On older Windows versions, you need PDF Reader. Click here to view the entire list of Office 2013 quick start guides.

Rumor: Native Microsoft Office Suite on Linux by 2014

Microsoft is seriously considering the release of their Office suite on the Linux platform by 2014, or at least this is the rumor.

According to an unknown source cited by Michael Larabel on phoronix.com, Microsoft is seriously analyzing the possibility of launching their Office suite for the Linux platform. This information was passed on to Larabel during the Free Open-Source Developers' European Meeting (FOSDEM), which took place in Brussels, Belgium. With all the attention Linux is getting these days and with the rise of Steam for Linux, not to mention the fact the Ubuntu is now occupying a huge market share, Microsoft would be crazy not to recognize the potential.

The Linux platform can no longer be brushed aside. The open source operating systems are getting easier to install with each edition and the LibreOffice and OpenOffice alternatives are proving to be a serious contender. This will not be considered good news by the majority of the Linux users, but the truth is that nothing drives innovation harder than competition.

Download sn0wbreeze 2.9.8 to Jailbreak iOS 6.1 on Windows

The new evasi0n jailbreak utility was released only a few hours ago, but the developers over at iH8sn0w moved pretty quickly to update their very own sn0wbreeze jailbreak utility to support iOS 6.1.

As you probably know by now, sn0wbreeze is a software tool running on Windows exclusively, so in case you’re using a Mac, check out evasi0n app on articles posted earlier. sn0wbreeze 2.9.8 comes with support for iOS 5.2, 6.0 and 6.1, but the last one is only available for iPhone 3GS and A4 devices.

In addition, the release notes point to some fixed Hacktivation issues on 6.0.x and some other patches for iFaith mode. Windows 8 users who wish to download the new sn0wbreeze utility need to deploy .NET Framework 3.5 available on Microsoft’s website.

sn0wbreeze also comes with support for iOS 6.1

Samsung GT-B9150 Rumored to Be Galaxy Q with Foldable Display

Samsung has been rumored lately to plan the launch of a nice range of new devices, including one featuring model number GT-B9150, which should hit the market with a full HD screen.

The device appears to have got a name now, as mobilegeeks suggests that Samsung could launch it as Galaxy Q, with a dual-screen form factor. To be more precise, the device is said to sport a foldable screen, the kind that Samsung has officially demonstrated at CES 2013 in January.

Furthermore, the handset is said to sport a 1.7 GHz dual-core Exynos 5250 processor inside, 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel photo snapper, 2MP camera on the front, Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, and a 3,500 mAh battery inside. As AndroidAuthority notes, we should take the rumor with a grain of salt for the time being. Hopefully, the upcoming MWC 2013 show in Barcelona will shed more light on this.

ATTENTION: ALWAYS make a backup of your device(s) before the jailbreak procedure! Make sure the battery is charged over 50% and that the device is connected to the computer via the USB cable! Not meeting these requirements will result in a failure!

When the progress bar on the evasi0n tool is complete, and the evasi0n icon appears on your device, launch it to complete the jailbreak process!

When evasi0n finished the jailbreak process, reboot the device and you'll see the Cydia icon on the home screen of your iDevice, which means that the jailbreak process is over and you can restore the backup. Watch the video below for more details!

Download evasi0n iOS 6.1 Untethered Jailbreak Tool

The evad3rs’ new jailbreak tool – evasi0n – has been officially released to the public, enabling any iDevice owner with iOS 6 installed to perform an untethered jailbreak using any computer.

Compatible with Macs, Windows PCs, and Linux computers, evasi0n is the latest jailbreak effort on behalf of a new group of hackers dubbed the “evad3rs.” The hack is “untethered,” meaning users will be able to carry around their jailbroken devices without fear that a reboot will cancel the mod. Evasi0n is compatible with all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 6.0 through 6.1. Users are urged to back up their iOS installation prior to starting the jailbreak process.

“Avoid all iOS and iTunes related tasks until evasi0n is complete. Why not just enjoy a brief break from the computer to stretch your legs?” say the evad3rs. Visit the group’s site for the download, and enjoy!

Prepare Your Device Now for iOS 6.1 Untethered Jailbreak

The much hyped evasi0n jailbreak tool is sitting at 98% completion and will be released later today for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux PCs. Before you do anything, read this.

The requirements list on evasi0n.com says you need just five minutes to perform the jailbreak, as well as a computer running Windows XP (or later) Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard (or later), or Linux x86 / x86_64. Your device will need to be running iOS 6.0 through 6.1, and you’ll also be using the USB cable that shipped with your iDevice to tether it to your PC. An important “read me” accompanies the jailbreak, stating that all users should seriously consider backing up their device to iTunes or iCloud before starting the jailbreak process.  The team doesn’t expect any nightmarish scenarios to emerge as a result of people using evasi0n to hack their iDevices, but in the offset chance that something does go wrong, it never hurts to have the contents of your phone / tablet safe and sound on a secondary medium.

“Backup your iOS device using iTunes or iCloud before using evasi0n. This way you are sure to never lose any data if something wrong happens,” according to the evad3rs. Perhaps more importantly, users who employ a passcode lock will need to switch this setting off prior to using evasi0n. The evad3rs explain, “Please disable the lock passcode of your iOS device before using evasi0n. It can cause issues.” After beginning the jailbreak process, users will have to be patient and refrain from interrupting the process. “Be patient while the jailbreaking process is running, don't start iTunes or Xcode in the meanwhile. The best is to not touch the computer until the end of the jailbreaking process,” reads another don’t.

Finally, according to the hard working team of developers behind evasi0n, “if the process gets stuck somewhere, it's safe to restart the program, reboot the device (if necessary by holding down Hold and Home until it shuts down), and rerun the process.”
