At the height of widespread growth of social media and messaging apps, many people thought email was going to die off a natural death; or at least was at the beginning of the journey to an end. However, that has never come to be, if anything people are now immersed in more emails than they were 5-10 years ago.

People are literally struggling to achieve zero Inbox, as they always have a couple of emails still requiring their attention. In a bid to enable you to manage your email better, Google has just baked in new features under the right click menu in Gmail.

According to the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection, the Xiaomi Mi A1 and the OnePlus 5T emit the most radiation in the world from the bunch of smartphones they tested.

No doubt this report will be a damning one to the two brands and spark off yet another round of public safety with these electronic devices that are being churned out in their thousands into the world. Cheap smartphones from China are easily finding their way to developing countries especially in Africa where such radiation watchdog is not as vigilant.

OnePlus 5T

African governments most certainly need to have the debate on the public safety of the numerous cheap electronic devices being shipped into their respective countries. In addition to putting in place suitable measures to ensure international best practice and standards are being adhered.

Statista went ahead and compile the report on radiation into an easy-to-read graphics showing the most radiation and the least radiation smartphone models. Alongside putting stats on each device’s respective absorption rate.

The Document Foundation has released an upgrade to its popular open source Office Suite LibreOffice; version 6.2. There are some new improvements and features you are going to like. One of which, being the new Ribbon user interface like the one we find in Microsoft Office.

Before we get into LibreOffice 6.2, let’s talk about the fact that the developers began integrating the then-called Notebookbare into the Office suite back in 2017 with the release of LibreOffice 5.3. Though it would appear most LibreOffice users don’t like the Ribbon interface, and so, it has been disabled by default.

To activate the new ribbon-like interface, go to Select View > User Interface and choose one of the available interfaces; Writer, Impress, Calc or Draw.

The new version 6.2 also comes with The Gougedbar Compact interface (that was previously in beta) and is now available for selection. You can download the new LibreOffice 6.2.0 to all supported operating system from the official project website here. The download is available as either web download or torrent download.
