Gone but not forgotten: the best 'dead' websites on the Internet

We take a tour through the Internet Graveyard...

GamePlayer



GamePlayer was an Australian video games website that prided itself on "telling it like it is". Fronted by Aussie gaming veteran Chris Stead, it was one of the few gaming sites that placed editorial integrity above all else – including advertorial space. Occasionally GamePlayer would descend into blog-style rants (most infamously via the headline 'Sony Gives 64 Million Gamers the Finger'), but this merely added to the site's maverick style. If you wanted a passionate outlook on gaming and games culture, GamePlayer was the place to visit.

In late 2009, GamePlayer's publisher Derwent Howard Media went into voluntary administration due to mounting debts. The site was put on 'indefinite hiatus' and then officially axed a few months later.

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
