TiVo gets Amazon.com downloads

Hey, fellow TiVo-ites! If all of that TiVo'ed content isn't enough to fill up your life, you now have the option to download movies and shows straight from Amazon's Unbox service to your DVR.

All you have to do is sign up for Amazon Unbox and register your Series2 or 3 TiVo. Then rent or buy any TiVo-designated content, and you will have the option to select your DVR as the download destination. Not all Unbox content is available for TiVo watching, so you need to look for the TiVo logo on each download page; check the list here.

Your box talks directly to the service, so your DVR must be connected to the Internet via broadband, not a phone line. Once your content is downloaded, it appears in your Now Playing list.

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.
