In arrivo il grande caldo con temperature record, anche fino a 40 gradi

Dopo il nubifragio di sabato, è in arrivo anche a Milano una delle più intense ondate di caldo dell’ultimo decennio in Europa, con punte di 40 gradi in particolare al Centro-Nord. Secondo i meteorologi di 3Bmeteo e Meteo Expert, l’ultima settimana di giugno si prospetta rovente, con possibili temperature record in alcune città. La poderosa ondata di caldo dovrebbe raggiungere l’apice tra giovedì 27 e sabato 29 giugno: sono attesi picchi di 37-40 gradi in città come Milano, Torino, Bologna, Roma, Frosinone, Rieti, Sassari.

«Da mercoledì 26 giugno, complice la scarsa ventilazione e la presenza di valori medio-alti di umidità, si accrescerà notevolmente la sensazione di afa e di conseguenza il disagio anche nel nostro Paese, specie in pianura padana e nelle aree interne del centro. Nelle ore notturne – spiegano i meteorologi – le temperature potrebbero risultare piuttosto elevate nelle grandi aree urbane, non inferiori ai [...]  read more

Microsoft Office vs LibreOffice

Microsoft Office and LibreOffice are both excellent office suites, but how can you be sure which is right for you? On the surface the two look very similar, but there are some important differences to bear in mind when making your decision.  

Price

LibreOffice is free to download and use, even for commercial purposes – no strings attached. Because it’s open source software, you can also download and edit the source code, should you wish to.

You can buy a one-time license for Microsoft Office, but a Microsoft Office 365 subscription offers the best value. There are different tiers available, depending on your needs, with options for business and personal users.

TRD Office 365 Personal $69.99 /year Office 365 Home $99.99 /year Office 365 Business Premium $12.50 /mth

Programs

One of the key considerations when you’re choosing between Microsoft Office and LibreOffice is the programs on offer.

LibreOffice includes Writer (word processing), Calc (spreadsheets), Impress (presentations), Base (databases), Math (editing formulas) and Draw (vector graphics).

A Microsoft Office 365 personal subscription [...]  read more

7 Free Streaming Services to Save You From Subscription Hell

The main casualty of the streaming wars so far has been your wallet. Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, CBS, HBO, Apple, Disney; they all demand a monthly tithe. Toss in a live service like YouTube TV, the music app of your choice, and whatever gaming concoction suits your needs, and you’re suddenly ringing up a pretty grim bill. But wait! The proliferation of streaming services has also yielded a bumper crop of free options. They’re the perfect cure for subscription fatigue.

The adage “you get what you pay for” does apply here to some extent. The selections generally aren’t huge, and most make you watch a few ads along the way. But they’re also better than you might expect, and continuing to improve. Just this week, Amazon promised to infuse its recently rebranded IMDb TV streaming service with “thousands” of new titles in the coming months,  [...]  read more

Startups Weekly: The scooter cash desert

Hello and welcome back to Startups Weekly, a newsletter published every Saturday that dives into the week’s noteworthy venture capital deals, funds and trends. Before I dive into this week’s topic, let’s catch up a bit. Last week, I noted my key takeaways from Recode + Vox’s Code Conference. Before that, I explored the bull versus bear arguments in regards to Peloton’s upcoming IPO.

Remember, you can send me tips, suggestions and feedback to kate.clark@techcrunch.com or on Twitter @KateClarkTweets.

For months, electric scooter businesses were securing large rounds at even larger valuations. So much so that the venture capital funding extravaganza in e-scooters defined Silicon Valley in 2018.

But it’s 2019, and times have changed. In an effort to keep myself from falling into a scooter rabbit [...]  read more
