Google+ floodgates open

Each Google+ user now has 150 invites to dole out

Inviting friends to Google+ is a lot more straightforward now. That's welcome news to users of the Internet search leader's growing social networking service.

Each Google+ user now has 150 invites to dole out and can either invite people by email, as before, or send a link to a dedicated invite page.

Google+ may have seemed vague or awkward to you before, raising questions in your mind. How many people could you invite? Would you run out of invites? How could you get all your Facebook friends an invite so they'll jump ship?

Previously, to invite friends, you had to enter each person's email address one at a time. With the new link that can be shared with a group, such as on Twitter, Facebook, or your website, Google is moving in the right direction.

It's not quite there yet, though. While you can send out more than 150 invites, only 150 people can sign up under you with this new system. This, still, may be plenty enough for most people.

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.
