I’ve been waiting for this update to roll around, and if you have a Surface I suspect that the same is true for you. Today, you can snag the final version of Office 2013 RT, but only if you head in the proper direction.
Thanks to the lovely Paul Thurrott, who first pointed out the process by which the update can be procured, you can – assuming that Windows Update on your device is not being wonky, or your region too obscure – download the update that should improve your productivity experience on your new tablet.
Thus, to the directions:
You are now all set. Enjoy the non-preview version of Office for your device by writing TNW a lovely letter pledging fealty in all things. Now, go enjoy your weekend.

As we prepare for the Fourth of July celebrations here in the United States, Google would like to remind us about something that’s very important – the free and open Internet.
Along with the video below, the company is asking you to sign up and share your “voice” about everything having to do with keeping the Internet open and free:
More than any time in history, more people in more places have the ability to make their voices heard.
Just as we celebrate freedom, we need to celebrate the tools that support freedom.
Add your voice in support of a free and open Internet.
Google says it will be posting some of the comments left on the site, but will only use your email address to send you updates on Internet policy initiatives. Everything else stays private.

It’s an important time as any to pay attention to all of the suggested rules and regulations that could damage our experience with the Internet forever. In fact, it’s even more important to keep the Internet open and free for generations to come.

If you’re interested in what’s “next” in the world of technology, then watching Google’s CEO speak at this year’s Zeitgeist is a can’t miss. Of course, his talk was centered around all of the areas that Google focuses on, but that’s becoming everything you can think of, basically.
During his conversation, which started out with his excitement about having Project Glass (not glasses, since it only covers one eye), Page discusses the power of the smartphone and increased interest in all things mobile.
Before getting to Google’s bread and butter, which is search, Page discusses Google+ and the misconceptions people have about the social layer.
His 20-minute talk is titled “Beyond Today” and it’s definitely worth watching:
I enjoyed hearing Page bring up the slogan about having “a healthy disregard for the impossible”, which shows us that Google isn’t afraid to fail.
The fact that Page was wearing Google Glass (which is what Page called it) during his talk about the future is no accident. It’s going to be huge.
