Epic Games on Monday published a list of known issues affecting Gears of War 2, slow matchmaking chief among them.

The issues, listed on the official Gears of War forums, include the biggest headache of all; slow multiplayer matchmaking.

"This is an issue that's affecting some folks, and Epic and Microsoft are both looking into it," said Epic's community manager. "I'll let you know more details as I have them."

Other bugs include difficulty accessing the freebie downloadable content such as the 48-hour LIVE trial, Flashback Map Pack, and the Golden Lancer, most of which that are fixed or properly explained on the above forum page.

Gears of War 2 designer Cliff Bleszinski alluded to existing bugs, when he told us in the November issue of GamePro, "We may need to tweak a few things in multiplayer after release through an update. People are going to find exploits we didn't anticipate. That's the reality of making a game."

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.

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.
