How to block all FIFA World Cup spoilers for free

A desktop app for those who can't wake up for the live action

Fetch TV has launched a desktop application programmed to block all FIFA World Cup results for those of you unfortunate enough to miss out on the live action.

Spoiler Spoiler warns you when you click on a link containing potential spoilers.

The ‘Spoiler Spoiler’ app, available as a free extension for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox users around the world, works by censoring all text which it deems is related to the football tournament regardless of which Web site you visit.

It does this by actively scanning Web sites for countries, team names, and World Cup-related terms. These are then automatically covered with the colours of a user-selected team.

It is also compatible with social media Web sites, and will blot out individual posts so you can use these as well.

This means you can record the overnight action taking place in Brazil, and watch it after work or school without having to steer clear of the Internet.

Fetch TV has confirmed to Good Gear Guide that Spoiler Spoiler will be constantly repurposed for a number of major events, with the Oscars to face the same treatment. Each event will require a new download.

Conveniently, Spoiler Spoiler’s filter can be bypassed; simply click on a Web page and confirm you wish to view the content once the warning prompt pops up.

Fetch TV’s Spoiler Spoiler app is now live, and can be downloaded from here.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
