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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
