Cyberflirt

It is amazing the number of people I meet who are addicted to chatting online. From the occasional ICQ sender, to user groups and all the flavours in between, more and more people are spanning the great divide and building friendships and sometimes long-term relationships online (I even have friends who married online before they met in person) - and raving about it. But if you are not in the know, where do you start?

Cyberflirting will definitely point you in the right direction, and give you tips on getting started, creating online personalities (what to reveal and what not to reveal) as well as some tips on how to get the attention you want online.

This book comes across as an American-style self helper to getting a date on the Internet. But if you can ignore the schmaltzy style of writing, it does take a look at the lighter side, and some might say the fun side, of the Internet.

Some of the how to tips include deciphering chatroom shorthand, choosing a screen name, creating a personal profile, and how to overcome chatroom shyness. Rabin with her can-do attitude certainly makes you feel as if you are missing out on a new frontier of friendships and fun . . . so, hey . . . why not give it a go?

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
