Yahoo email suffers partial outage

Yahoo confirms on Twitter that some users were without email Thursday

Yahoo's email service was struggling Thursday with users around the globe complaining that they've had no access for most of the day.

It's not yet clear when the service started to stagger or how many of Yahoo's users have been affected. However, Yahoo confirmed on its Twitter account that there is a problem.

"We are aware that we have experienced an outage, and we are working to address the issue," tweeted @yahoo. "We appreciate your patience."

While some users seemed fairly patient about the inconvenience, some were a bit more frustrated when they took to Twitter to vent about the outage of their free email service.

"It's been a full day with no yahoo email. Error 15... and Error 17. What's up?!? @yahoo #yahoocare," tweeted @tmgoodwin.

And @christaylor_nyc tweeted, "Yahoo Mail down, again. Why do you make it so hard to love you?"

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.
