Manage all your social networks under one roof

Free service Seesmic Web makes it a snap to access your Facebook, Twitter, and other accounts on a single page

As you learned in last week's write-up of Meebo, the browser-based instant messaging service, I love apps that can live on the Web instead of having to clutter up my PC.

For example, suppose I want to manage all my social networks -- Facebook, Twitter, etc. -- from a single, time-saving portal. There's a program called Seesmic Desktop that lets me do just that -- but it's one more thing to install, one more program consuming precious system resources.

That's why I prefer Seesmic Web, an online version of the tool. Nothing to download, nothing to install, just one-click access to my social networks. It's free, easy, and fabulous.

Seesmic Web supports Facebook, FourSquare, Google Buzz, LinkedIn, PingFM, and Twitter. All you do is sign into one or more of these accounts and presto, you can read, respond to, and create status messages. Everything is organized into columns you can add, remove, and/or resize as needed. I especially like the way you can toggle between black and white backgrounds.

The service was recently updated to include a couple business-friendly features, including scheduled status updates, support for unlimited Facebook accounts, and integration with the Klout influencer-ranking service.

All told, Seesmic Web is pretty slick, and a worthwhile destination for anyone tired of bopping back and forth between Facebook, Twitter, and the like.

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.
