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.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
