IT wrestles with workplace blogging

How are IT departments dealing with the advent of the blogosphere?

"We've given ourselves an opportunity to explore whether this has value for the enterprise," Gill says.

Lessons learned

Still, Valdes cautions again investing too much in blogging. He advises companies "to invest as little time and money in the technology because the technology will change." Moreover, he says, companies that invest only in blogs won't be successful.

"Blogs are only one part of it. By themselves, they're not going to necessarily make a big impact because it's just one tool. There are also wikis, social forums and portals, and other communication and collaboration tools," he says. "And companies that can make effective use of the full repertoire of tools will have an edge over competitors."

Remember to see "Corporate blogging: Does it really work?" for a look at whether or not blogs are successful in meeting corporate objectives.

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.
