WEB 2.0 - Net honchos to discuss Web opportunities

Attendees at this week's Web 2.0 conference will discuss new business opportunities on the Internet, such as online video and mobile Internet services.

Some big vendors are taking advantage of the conference's popularity to announce new products and partnerships. Among them are:

  • Hewlett-Packard, as part of its Print 2.0 initiative to improve printing from Web sites, will announce new relationships with large Web publishers, like Disney.com, Microsoft's Windows Live Spaces social network and blogging service, Yahoo's Flickr photo sharing site and the popular Graffiti application for Facebook.
  • MySpace and Skype are partnering to let MySpace members make free voice calls via the MySpace instant messaging service. The new service, called MySpace IM with Skype, will integrate MySpace's IM service with Skype's Internet voice communications services, and will be generally available in November.
  • Fast Search & Transfer will unveil Fast Active Mobile, a mobile search and personal recommendations platform that wireless carriers can implement to offer these services to their customers. Fast Active Mobile will build a profile for every wireless subscriber, taking into account their searches, product views, purchases and other activities and information.
  • NewsGator Technologies, an enterprise RSS vendor, will announce Social Sites, an add-on to its RSS Enterprise Server, designed to enhance Microsoft's Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 by making it easier to discover what colleagues within the organization are doing.
The Web 2.0 Summit ends Friday.

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.
