Royal baby news blocker launched by The Guardian

Tech Digest news, Websites

guardian-royal-baby.jpgHere’s one for all you Republicans out there, sick to the teeth with news on the royal baby, child of Prince William and Kate “The Duchess of Cambridge” Middleton due anytime now.

The Guardian have prepared a “Republican?” filtering button for their website which removes any stories referencing the royal birth, saving you from trawling through pre-prepared “Guess the Royal baby name” and “Royal babies through the ages” posts and replacing the Royal Baby Watch right-hand sidebar with the usual sports coverage instead.

Now all we need is for The Daily Mail to roll out a similar one for every time a “celebrity” is caught in their undergarments and we’d be away.
