Coming down with Xbox Fever...

Rather than offer up more and more sexually explicit advertisements many companies are taking a more subtle route. The www.Ilovebees.com viral campaign for the release of Halo 2 on Xbox opened up the many possibilities of subtle marketing with a slow release of "leaked" and "unofficial" scoops, all really under complete control from Microsoft. Then came the viral campaign www.ourcolony.com which "leaked" the first ever images of the Xbox 360 to the cry of frenzied, theorizing gamers falling prey to the evil genius of Microsoft marketing. www.origenxbox360.com followed, offering to show the promised land, which turned out to be a competition and was quickly followed by yet another campaign at www.hex1168.com; also a competition.

Now just when you think you've had just about as much viral bombardment as you can handle a new Xbox 360 campaign hits the web, the only difference is, this one is just for Australians. www.063xobx.com.au is the first large scale viral to be targeted solely at Australians. Ever other campaign has been pretty much only for US or European markets with Australians left feeling like "Sloth" from The Goonies, the locked away family freak.

Care to play?

www.063xobx.com.au challenges users to play a game over 10 levels with no instructions as to how to get to the next level. Along the way there are 3 downloadable prizes and at the end there is a surprise that Xbox lovers will appreciate. The game will require some Xbox knowledge; some Halo knowledge and some Xbox360 knowledge to complete and is well designed and intelligently conceived. If you are a fan of Xbox and are looking forward to March 2nd, this is a site well worth checking out.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
