The 11 lamest blogs on the Web

After an Internet-wide search, here are the 11 blogs that depressed -- er, uh -- impressed us the most with their lameness.

Lamest Commercial Disguised as a Blog

And the winner is: "Check Out".
"Check Out" is promoted as being the place for "the latest in gadgets, green, gaming, and more." The "more," it would seem, constitutes a wealth of thinly disguised Wal-Mart commercials, which you'll find sprinkled throughout almost every entry.
To be fair, Wal-Mart doesn't hide the fact that it operates the site. The problem is that it tries to present it as a regular blog about high-tech stuff, while in actuality, it's more like a replica of the company's weekly ad.
Take, for example, a recent post entitled "Secrets Revealed"--a story filled with tips on saving during holiday shopping. Those tips include such winners as looking for the "truly unbeatable prices on electronics" at your local Wal-Mart store.
"No gimmicks or rebates, just a great Blu-ray player for under $200 everyday!!!!" the entry proclaims.
Reality check on aisle two, please.

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.
