There were many ways to search the Internet before Google came along, but none of them turned into a verb. These days, a big deal is being made of Google's turning 10 by a lot of the media. Most of the coverage has had a bit of an edge to it, as if people do not want to accept the success that Google has enjoyed.
Google is launching a beta version of its own Web browser on Tuesday in more than 100 countries, the company announced Monday in a blog posting.
Google is considering allowing users of its search engine to tinker with query results by re-ranking them and commenting on them.

It used to be that computer attacks were perpetrated mostly for fame and recognition. In the last five years the motivation behind the majority of attacks seems to have shifted inexorably from fame to fortune. Parallel to this shift we are now witnessing the emergence of a new attack economy, an efficient multilayer marketplace for information security attacks.
Video may not have killed the radio star, but online it's becoming a killer app. Internet video, once infamous for why-bother image quality, now offers good resolution and decent image quality. This month, we check out an Internet video download service that uses its own software, and a greatly improved old favorite for live video messaging. While we're at it, let's peek at a new way to show and use the Windows XP desktop. Each maker offers at least a taste of its utility for free.
For almost as long as there's been a Web, there's been a Yahoo. Its look, feel, and functionality have changed a lot over the years, mostly through subtle evolution. But today, Yahoo has launched a preview of its <a href="http://www.yahoo.com/preview">new front page</a>, and an awful lot is changing all at once--in ways that are slick, functional, and even entertaining.
Sometimes just a little fix makes it that much easier to surf the Web, navigate your PC's desktop, or even use your keyboard. This month, we look at a Firefox extension that works like Microsoft's Internet Explorer, a freebie that lets you rename the standard Windows Desktop icons, and a low-cost goodie that makes Caps Lock dance to your tune.

An extreme volume of spam calls for extreme measures. You can create a "Safe Mail" folder in Outlook Express as an effective spam filter. Right-click on Local Folders and select New Folder. Next select Tools, Create Rules from Message and pair your address book and any other trusted e-mail address with your Safe Mail folder. In theory, spam will never make it into your Safe Mail folder -- only messages from senders in your address book. This also works with Outlook, Netscape, and various other e-mail programs.

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.
