- LibreOffice 4.2 was released and it brought with itself a new start screen, better compatibility with MS OOXML and an Expert Configuration window in the options menu.
- Kali Linux 1.0.6 was released and the biggest change it brought is the ability to destroy your encrypted data with a special (separate) password.

- How a customer was refused warranty for his laptop, even though the company made a mistake (and even acknowledged it).
Feel good stuff:
