Football Manager Release Date Announced

Sports Interactive are to release Football Manager 2014 on 31st October. For the first time ever it is going to be released for Linux, something I dreamed about for a long time. Lots of improvement with tactics, training, transfers and board interaction along with a complete re-design of the UI. The new cloud-save feature means you can play from any computer all over the world and if you are a steam user you can share your customised content such as logo packs. You can pre-order on Steam or from the developers website.

Firefox 24

The latest version of Firefox has been released. The major changes to the desktop version are close tabs to the right which can be useful if you are like me and open lots of tabs for a brief while. Mac OS X get a new scrollbar. You can now tear off chat windows to view separately by simply dragging. There has been lots of accessibility related improvements as well as bug fixes. Find out more on the Firefox website. To view an in-depth article on the latest features to Firefox on the desktop and mobile head over to TNW.
