Top ten people to butter up before the recession hits

Recession fears are everywhere. Here are the top ten people to make sure you're on good terms with before you need them

Google: This doesn't just mean getting any Googlers you might know to invite you down to the Googleplex for pasta fagoogle and organic argoogla salad. In today's job market, the first page of search results for your name is more important than your resume. Check that your home page, projects page, and resume page are all valid HTML and up to date. Fix any broken links, make a sitemap, and sign up for Google Webmaster Tools, to get Google to notify you of any problems crawling your site. Of course, you'll need to build some Google juice for your name, so get your home page URL out on the net-the easiest way is to put it in your email .signature and post to a well-linked user group list-, and you'll be a step closer to passing the "Google Sniff Test" from prospective employers.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
