Still not sure what the heck Twitter is or why you'd want to use it? I understand completely: Friends and family members are constantly asking me, "What the heck is Twitter, and why would I want to use it?"

I have to admit, I'm not very good at explaining it. But no matter, because now I can refer everyone to [[xref:http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/the-complete-guide-to-twitter-pdf/|"The Complete Guide to Twitter,"|"The Complete Guide to Twitter" a free 40-page guide from MakeUseOf.

Author Mark O'Neill explains what the service does, why it's actually worth using, and how to sign up for an account.

You'll also get hands-on training on subjects like using the interface, sending Tweets from your desktop, signing up for automated Twitter "bots," and so on.

The guide is available for download in PDF format, though you can also read it online at Scribd.com. It's definitely worth a look if you're confused by Twitter or just need help making the most of the service.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
