In Pictures: 12 fantastic (and free) Windows 8 apps

The delightful dozen: 12 fantastic (and free) Windows 8 apps

Blink Cliplets Another Microsoft creation—this time from the mad geniuses at Microsoft Research— Blink Cliplets "lets you exercise your creative talents by layering static and dynamic visual elements," as its description puts it.

What does that mean? Basically, the app lets you upload a video clip, choose a frame from it to set as a static image, and select elements of the video to leave in motion over said static image. For example, you could have a (mostly) still picture of an Italian fountain in which the water actually flows.

Yeah, it sounds weird, but Blink Cliplets is an absolute joy to play around with, easier to use than you'd think, and best of all, totally free. Check it out.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
