Transform your photos into holiday cards and calendars

Use image-editing software and Web sites to turn your digital photos into handcrafted greeting cards and other holiday gifts.

Post your photos in the cloud

If you like the idea of storing photos on the Internet so that certain people can get to them, but you don't want just anyone to be able to browse the photos, you can make suitble arrangements by using the photo-sharing site's privacy mode. Flickr, for example, lets you mark your photos as private, which limits access to people you specify.

Alternatively, you can store your pictures at an online storage service. Think of these services as virtual hard drives that you can access whenever and wherever you have an Internet connection. You can give access to this storage location to anyone you wish, thereby sharing high-resolution, print-quality photos with friends and family without having to send files through e-mail. Microsoft's SkyDrive is a superb example of this sort of "cloud storage."

After you obtain a free Windows Live account, you can store up to 25GB of files--music, photos, documents, whatever--and share them with anyone you choose. Another option is a service called Dropbox. Dropbox limits you to 2GB of free storage (you can pay a subscription fee for more space), but a small app lets you drag and drop files to Dropbox from your Windows folders, as if it were a location on your own hard drive. In contrast, you need to use a Web browser to upload files to SkyDrive.

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.
