Tip: Find Pokémon Go stops and gyms using the official Ingress live web map

If you want to dominate the world of Pokémon Go, it can't hurt to put this map to use in order to find prime hunting locations.

Unless you spent the weekend in the woods without an Internet connection, you’ve probably seen that Pokémon Go is the hottest new craze.

Some of your competitors, however, may have been on the beta for months and have a huge advantage. You need some help.

One thing you can do is head to the Ingress Intel Map. Since Niantic (the company behind Pokémon Go and Ingress) uses the same set of landmarks for both games, the map can give you an idea about where to find PokéStops and Gyms are located. You may not necessarily know whether a particular landmarks is going to be a stop or gym, but you’ll at least have a better idea of where to find them. You can use the Ingress map to find locations densely populated with landmarks, so you know where to go spend your time.

The impact on you: If you haven’t tried Pokémon Go, you ought to give it a go. It’s a rather unique take on mobile gameplay, as you have to head out into the world to find Pokémon and engage in real-time battles. It’s also creating a new behavior among people: they’re actually talking to each other in public, as the search for Pokémon has created this organic community of people working together for a common goal.

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.

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.
