Kodak and Skype put on free slideshow

Waiting to share photos with long overdue and overseas friends and family will be a thing of the past thanks to a new photo sharing application developed by Kodak and Skype.

The consumer-focused slideshow software, Kodak Photo Voice, allows users to share images online in real-time.

"This photo sharing tool allows Skype users to seamlessly tell stories with friends and family using the Kodak EasyShare Gallery," said Kodak Digital & Film Imaging Systems general manager, Steve Morley.

Users will be able to upload images onto the Kodak EasyShare Gallery (which features unrestricted storage capacity for users) and then create personal slideshows using the Photo Voice software.

The software also promises real-time collaboration features that let users view each others' cursor movements while navigating and talking through images.

Since launching the EasyShare Gallery a year ago, the service has attracted over 50 million registered users and hosts over one billion images, Morley said.

Although the Australian EasyShare Gallery is not yet on par with its US' counterpart which features personalised photo mugs and sticker based products for sale, the Australian market will be equipped with a fully-fledged service once production facilities have been rolled out this year.

The beta version of the application is the first Skype certified online photo sharing application and is available as a free download from www.kodakgallery.com/photovoice.

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.
