Girl Ambition: Facebook for tweens

A new social networking site for tween girls.

Girl Ambition is trying to become the premier social networking site for tween girls.

The pink, flowery, butterfly-laden site launched Wednesday and targets girls up to age 13, offering videos, contests, IM and e-mail. The site also lets parents control girls' buddy lists and filter content.

The company's founders, three mothers of young girls, want it to be the training-wheels site for tweens before they grow into more sophisticated social networking sites.

"We know they'll be on Facebook and MySpace at some point, and want to be sure we give them the necessary tools here first," said Hilary DeCesare, co-founder and CEO of Girl Ambition, in a press release.

"We wanted to provide resources to prepare girls to safely use the Internet before they graduate to more advanced sites that present inherent dangers to this vulnerable age group," she explained.

Girl Ambition is not free. A subscription costs US$4.99 per month or $49.90 each year.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
