Xbox Live indie games resurface

Microsoft puts spotlight on independently developed video games

Microsoft has learned the error of its ways, returning the independently developed games it offers back into the Games and Demos section of Xbox Live today.

After much consternation from fans who could not find the games and developers complaining about visibility problems, Microsoft decided to make things right. The games also were not available as part of Xbox Live's game search functions.

The changes came as part of the Xbox Live Fall Update, which gave the service a make-over, added new functionality and features, and enabled support for the Kinect motion sensing camera.

Xbox Live Indie Games were pushed into the Specialty Shops section of Xbox Live Marketplace, which gave all of the games less visibility and generally made them hard to find.

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.

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.
