LibreOffice + Dropbox are PowerPC Friend

I’m assuming that most of you are already aware of some updates available for PowerPC’s applications, but I decided to make a post just in case you missed it!  So this post is really just one for “checking” out information you may not have been aware of.  Let’s see how up to date you are!

1 – LibreOffice recently released LibreOffice4, but now its LibreOffice 4.0.2 is already available for download – http://www.libreoffice.org/download/?type=mac-ppc&lang=en-US (There is the next version available for test if you feel like checking it out, too! 4.0.3.

2 – Our good friend DropBox recently released an update and for our great surprise its actually compatible with PowerPC.  DropBox 2.0.8 – http://dropbox.com

These 2 softwares are fundamental for any PowerPC machine or better yet, for any computer because they’re so friendly, free and work across multiple platforms.

How many of you have installed LibreOffice + DropBox?  Please tweet:

Fancy ScreenSaver – PowerPC

I think it’s high time to “pimp out” our PowerPCs a little bit!  In my opinion the G3/G4/G5 are one of the best designs Apple ever launched.  They were designed so “out of the box” that even today they still look as modern as they day they were launched.  I honestly love the iMac G4…some of my friends are very impressed with iMac G4 because it is a very minimalist machine…and we are talking about  a design that is now over 10 years old!  Anyways, I better stop talking about the G4 otherwise I won’t get to the point.  I’ve been looking for this ScreenSaver for a long time now…you can find it in any iPad/tablet.  In fact, I think some of the tablet users just use their tablets as clocks, as far as I see in some fabulous online photos.  But if you have an office with a spare PowerPC machine hanging around, this will give you a cool reason to turn it ON and let it work for you again!

Fliqlo – 1.3.3 – (Free) – PowerPC – http://9031.com/goodies/ 

Briblo – 1.0.3 – (Free) – PowerPC – http://9031.com/goodies/  Also a Screen Saver but this is so funny, it’s a movable brick block that looks like Lego or Tetris.  This would be considered a “Smart Screen Saver” because you can play with it by using the direction arrows on your keyboard.  It’s very addictive, I even set up my Screen Saver to start on 3 minutes, when I’d usually opt for it to come on after 15 minutes – just so I can occasionally play with the bricks!

P.S.:  Thanks Peter for sharing on comments these ScreenSavers are a show stoppers:
