Flock 0.9.0.1 for Windows
- Integrates easily with leading Web 2.0 services, blog photos and video clips with one click
- Packed interface needs a lot of screen real estate, supported services are not user-configurable
This one-stop Web browser offers easy blogging and integration with Web services, but not all of its features are configurable.
Addicted to the Brave New Web's feeds, streams, tags, pics and flicks? For a simple, consolidated window to the interactive Web, try the free Flock browser, which comes preconfigured for creating and consuming RSS feeds, shared photos, and other Web 2.0 fare - just enter your existing accounts' user names and passwords.
Flock is based on Firefox, and Firefox users will like the familiarity of Flock's menus, sidebars, and tabbed layout. Once you log in to one of the media sharing accounts and a blogging service, you can create with just one click a blog post that includes photos and videos; or, you can upload batches of pics using an included photo uploader. Flock saves bookmarks locally by default, but lets you use Del.icio.us as well so you can maintain just one set.
Web junkies, however, will quickly note Flock's major drawbacks: its limited choice of supported services and the inability to change the contents of its My World default home page. You could use Firefox add-ons (most of which are compatible with Flock) to access unsupported services, but people who are constantly seeking out the latest and greatest extensions, toolbars, aggregators and portals will probably continue to roll their own interactive Web interfaces.

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.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
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.
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.
