World of Warcraft helps boy survive moose attack

According to Nettavisen (via Wired), 12-year-old Hans JA¸rgen Olsen and his sister encountered a troubled moose while walking in the forest near their Norwegian home.

After diverting the beast's attention away from his younger sister, Hans played possum, "just like you learn at level 30 in World of Warcraft," to avoid being attacked.

"Feign death" is a skill acquired by level 30 hunters in Blizzard's massively popular MMO which recently surpassed 9 billion paying subscribers worldwide.

Hans, his sister, and the moose all reportedly walked away from the incident without injury.

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.
