David Hasslehoff launches social networking site

A new social networking site has gained 6,000 members since its launch last month. But before you get ready to kill your Facebook and MySpace profiles in favour of the next big thing in social networking, it's worth noting who's behind the venture.

It's none other than 80s Speedo-wearing TV star David 'The Hoff' Hasslehoff. Yup, the US actor most famous for his roles in 80s TV shows Knight Rider and Baywatch has launched Hoff Space.

According to The Hoff, the Official Hasselhoff social network was set up in a bid to stop people impersonating him on MySpace and Facebook.

"A lot of people were coming in posing as me or my children and I had to stop it, so I opened my own. It is going to be fun and I can regulate it," he told BBC Radio 1.

Hoff Space users can message each other, keep up to date on the Hoff's movements through his blog and even upload pics and videos of their idol including Dave's monumental performance of 'I've Been Looking for Freedom' after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Although if I were you, I wouldn't give up on Facebook just yet.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
