Google fixes Calendar glitch

The problem prevented many users from logging into their accounts

Google has fixed a problem that prevented a significant number of users from logging into their Calendar accounts.

Although Google first acknowledged the problem around 11 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time on Wednesday, users began logging complaints in the official Calendar discussion forum on Tuesday.

Google suggested that to work around the problem, users should clear their browser cookies or try signing out and then back in to their accounts. The issue was fixed by 12:15 p.m.

The problem didn't affect organizations that use Calendar as part of the Google Apps Premier hosted collaboration and communication suite, which costs US$50 per user per year, includes IT controls and comes with a 99.9 percent uptime guarantee.

Other Google services hit with bugs in recent days included the Blogger blog hosting and publishing service, the App Engine application development and hosting platform, and the Postini e-mail security and archiving suite.

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.
