Google sends invites for Analytics service

Google is extending limited invitations to join its Analytics service, after overwhelming demand last November halted new subscribers to the free service.

Google is starting to send invitations to customers who requested its Analytics service, after overwhelming demand caused the company to stop accepting new subscribers in November.

Google Analytics is a free service that tracks the effectiveness of banner ads, referral links, e-mail newsletters and free and paid search results. Web site owners can see how visitors were referred, and how the visitors use their Web site.

Invitation codes are being sent to a first set of customers who requested an Analytics account, according to the company's Inside AdWords blog Wednesday. Google said it is working to add server capacity to add more accounts and asked others waiting for an account to be patient.

The crunch came when Google bucked the market by offering Analytics for free, nixing the US$199 monthly fee. Google acquired Analytics, formerly known as Urchin on Demand, when it bought Urchin Software in March 2005.

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.
