E-mail 'guest list' service adds Yahoo, Outlook integration

Because 'one person's spam is another person's sausage'

Loder admitted that "not very much" money had changed hands between Boxbe users and marketers so far. He said the company was focusing on adding features -- and, it hopes, users -- before knocking on Madison Avenue's doors again.

"We have to attract a large number of members in order to get the scale for advertisers to give us greater consideration," he said.

In the future, users could register their personal demographic data with Boxbe to make them better leads for marketers, thus also raising the rate they could charge certain advertisers.

That could help users someday to charge even marketers hawking porn Web sites or Viagra and get paid, Loder said.

"Almost any kind of message could be paid by a marketer for delivery, as long as they get the assurance that it's to an audience that cares," he said.

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.

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.
