YouTube hit with service outage

Google has yet to confirm the outage, which lasted an hour or so

YouTube users today were reporting service outages and delays with the popular video site. On Twitter, dozens of users complained that they couldn't connect to YouTube, or that they couldn't watch videos once they were on the site.

The problems appear to have started in the early afternoon, US Pacific Time. In some cases, videos would load but only after a minute or longer delay.

On Twitter, the complaints lasted about an hour. User "S Sometimes" tweeted a common gripe: "YouTube is going SO SLOW! I feel like I have dial-up interwebz again. GRRRR."

Google has yet to confirm the outage, which lasted an hour or so. By around 1:30 p.m. (U.S. Pacific) YouTube appeared to be back to normal, based on feedback from users in California, Massachusetts, and the United Kingdom.

The YouTube glitch is yet another in a recent string of service hiccups that have plagued Google-owned sites, including outages and slowdowns that hit Google Search, Google News, and Google Apps in mid-May.

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.
