In Pictures: 20 awesome Cloud services you've never heard of

Web services are quickly replacing desktop programs for routine tasks such as image editing, spreadsheet creation and more. Here are 20 such services that we think are worth your time.

You don't need a desktop app to seize control of your digital life

Ready to manage your entire digital life online, from making backups to finding old photos? Web services can help you. With such services, you can also discover new music, protect your online privacy, improve your personal habits, or keep a journal. And the best part is, some won’t cost you a penny.

Even Microsoft is tying its popular Office suite to the cloud with the upcoming Office 2013. It's a pretty clear indicator that, sometime in the near future, Web services and desktop apps linked to Web services will replace traditional stand-alone programs.

For that to happen, however, you'll need the right services. Here are 20 that we recommend now.

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.
