A community-based music download site
- You probably haven't heard of most artists on the site
It may not be mainstream, but Jamendo will certainly encourage you to broaden your musical horizons.
Jamendo is a community-based music download site where the music is absolutely free.
That's right: no subscriptions; no per-track cost; no album download fee; and no limitations. The catch? You probably haven't heard of most artists on the site. Top 40 this isn't, but that's why Jamendo is so fun. You can find everything from Chilean folk pop and Italian metal to the next big indie hip-hop star.
Listen online to any song and download it either directly from the site (in MP3 format) or through BitTorrent servers (where you can find MP3 and Ogg Vorbis formats). This site is completely legal because its artists use Creative Commons licences - the same licences used by Flickr, Deviantart and other content-sharing sites.
More than 150,000 tracks are currently available at Jamendo as 192Kbps MP3s or 220Kbps Ogg Vorbis files.
Members of Jamendo can get their hands on more than just music. Users can create a personal space, similar to your MySpace or Facebook profile, on which you can publish playlists of your favourite music and even invite your friends to join and then share music with them. You can even write and publish reviews of the albums you've listened to.

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.
