Simplify Facebook, Twitter with Brizzly

Tired of Facebook's ad-heavy, overly cluttered interface? Brizzly strips away everything but the good stuff.

Brizzly's even better provides a clean, simple, ad-free interface for Facebook. Twitter, too.

Getting started with this free Web service is a snap. Sign up for an account, then supply your username and password for Facebook and/or Twitter. You'll have to click through a couple "approval" pop-ups, which is normal for any outside service seeking access to your account.

Now you've got a simple front end for your Facebook news feed. You can update your status, "like" and comment on friends' posts, watched posted videos, write on walls, and so on. You don't get every single Facebook feature--you can't "hide" a friend or play any games--but you do get a refreshingly streamlined interface.

You can find out more about Brizzly (which is even more robust as a Twitter surrogate) in this video.

As someone who uses Facebook primarily for reading friends' feeds and posting the occasional status update, I'm seriously loving Brizzly.

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.
