Google's top 10 best (and worst) innovations of the year

Google rolled out a number of cool products this year, but not all of them can be home runs. Here's a look at the best and worst of Google this year.

Hot: Priority Inbox

If you receive a high volume of e-mails on a daily basis, you know how time consuming it can be to sort through it all.

This summer, Google announced the beta release of Priority Inbox, a feature that essentially separates the junk from the important stuff, and organizes it to help you focus on the messages that matter.

To help Gmail recognize which e-mails are important to you, you click a (+) button to indicate it's relevant or a (-) button to send the message to a lower priority. The more you use the buttons, the better Gmail becomes at, well, prioritizing your inbox.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
