LibreOffice will be launching the web based version of their Office Suite (which I think is the best office suite) next year.

I wonder if it'll be better than Google Docs.
Summary:It's been years since The Document Foundation announced that LibreOffice would be ported to an online version. It looks like it will finally arrive... in 2016.

I'm really enjoying Google's Inbox.  I was missing the Priority Inbox; until I discovered Low Priority Bundling.  

I wonder why I can't flag messages as Phishing anymore... only Spam.  Maybe the distinction wasn't helpful for most people?

I'm a little surprised at all the iPhone fanboys who are dissing the s6 because it's screen is too high in resolution (and therefore uses up much more system resources). 

I don't remember people complaining when the iPhone got a retina resolution screen.  Did Samsung go too far?  Or are the iPhone fans just jealous?

Excellent animated modals; great for mobile. 
animatedModal.js is a jQuery plugin to create a fullscreen modal with CSS3 transitions. you can use the transitions by animate.css or create yourself their transitions.

We're at the very beginning of exploring our universe.  I find it so exciting to contemplate how much we have in store for us and our children.

This looks like a very interesting documentary on a documentary about The Holocaust. I'd like to know more about why the original documentary was never shown; especially as someone like Alfred Hitchcock worked on it.
Producer Brett Ratner and producer Jane Wells join Morning Joe to discuss the new documentary "Night Will Fall," which tells the story of the making of a documentary about the liberation of Nazi death camps.

I really like these textures!  I wonder which data graphing libraries could be made to use them?

I always thought the whole "'export grade' RSA" plan was a stupid one; it didn't work at all.  Why did the NSA think if they made it illegal to export web browsers with strong encryption outside the US, people wouldn't get it off the Internet illegally? 

Seems this foolish plan has come back to bite them on the ass.

"Thousands of sites are vulnerable, including that of the US National Security Agency - the same agency that pushed for weaker export grade encryption, according to Ed Felten, director of Princeton's Center for Information Technology Policy."
Summary:A new web crypto bug is affecting many Safari and Android users. Who's going to get the fix first?

Not actually Fullscreen (it's a modal) but that doesn't take away from this very nice Bootstrap plugin.
