Bird flu bites the dust with Panasonic's filters

Panasonic reckons it has found the perfect way to make us all feel safe in our own homes at last -- it claims that its air-filtering Super Alleru-Buster technology can all but eliminate the bird flu virus from air it comes into contact with.

The gear was tested by boffins at Tottori University and shown to be 99.999 percent effective. Moreover, the guys in white coats reckon we don't need to worry about SARS any more either -- remember that?

The future looks bright for expanding the use of the technology. According to Panasonic, "These filters also inhibit many allergens, thereby reducing the incidence of allergic diseases such as hay fever and bronchial asthma. Since the Super Alleru-Buster material can be applied to other components, we intend to expand its use to products which do not contain filters."

Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
