Your iPod Is good to the last drop

iPod owners might have felt left out when I wrote about the Noritz Juke Tower, which lets you listen to MP3s in the shower, provided they're on a thumb drive. But the white-earbud set has something similar as well: ZumReed's Drop Speaker, a drop-shaped unit that snugly encloses an iPod and has a speaker in its base.

The screw-top gadget appears to be water-resistant rather than waterproof, which means you'd probably be able to splash it with water but spraying it with the shower head might be a no-no. Still, with four external controls and an extremely portable design, the Drop Speaker is a reasonably convenient way to listen to your tunes without worrying about your player.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.
