Novell launches directory-based free e-mail

Novell has launched a free Web-based e-mail service based on its NDS directory service, called myrealbox.com.

Myrealbox is a Novell-sponsored site that will offer free e-mail, based on Novell technologies, including its Novel Directory Services (NDS) and Novell Internet Messaging System (NIMS), Novell said in a statement.

The service will not be accompanied by advertising or marketing campaigns, according to the company, nor is the site designed to make a profit. Its purpose is to demonstrate Novell's technologies on the Web.

Directory services provide information about users on a network. It is like an electronic phone book that allows users to find other users and services on the network.

Eric Schmidt, Novell's CEO, has been pushing the value of directories on the Internet, saying they improve security for electronic commerce.

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.
