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?

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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.
