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

We take a tour through the Internet Graveyard...

Uncle Clive



Uncle Clive was a comedy gaming blog specialising in what the British do best – scathing satire. It was sort of a less vulgar version of the comic strip Viz; but aimed at gamers. On a bi-weekly basis, Uncle Clive dispensed his ZX Spectrum-derived wisdom upon those assembled. Highlights included Onions4Eyes (a man with onions where his eyes once resided), Gamer's Girlfriend Reviews (a single bemused line, usually about the incomprehensibility of the controls) and Games Whose Sequels Really Should Have Been A Lot Better Than The Original By Now (self explanatory, really).

Uncle Clive spread the good word for five side-splitting years, before ending his tenure in 2006. To this day, we've yet to stumble across a funnier game site.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
