Seven Media Group-owned company Hybrid Television Services revealed yesterday that TiVo personal video recorders would be available through the Qantas Frequent Flyer rewards program. Participants in the system accrue points whenever they use Qantas services. Qantas Frequent Flyers will now be able to purchase the TiVo set top boxes just using points or with a points-plus-payment program.

Hybrid Television Services’ CEO Robee Minicola commented that the deal was made with the knowledge that these rewards programs “experience heavy demand for personal and gift purchases in the lead up to Christmas”.

The TiVo is touted as a great device for the consumer on the go thanks to its ability to schedule programs for recording, as well as the ability to remotely schedule recordings from any Internet connection.

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.

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.
