The Australian Broadcasting Corporation switched on its digital radio services yesterday in Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Sydney.

Simulcasts of existing ABC Radio stations, such as the youth-oriented Triple J and news-focused ABC NewsRadio, are now taking place on both digital and analog spectrums.

Three new music stations are also available — ABC DiG Music, ABC Jazz and ABC Country — bringing the total number of stations up to 13.

The start-up of the new stations was celebrated with an event featuring performances from Australian artists Sarah Blasko, Paul Grabowsky and Jasmine Rae.

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.
