Old Sirius/XM radios will still work

If you're a satellite radio subscriber like me, you've probably wondered whether you might have to buy a replacement radio if and when the XM Radio and Sirius merger happens. Of course I don't want to spring for a new radio to replace my Sirius Sportster. But I also fear the potential cost of having to install a new radio.

Well, the companies have confirmed (or reaffirmed) the fact that current radios will continue to work and receive programming from both services once the two companies marry (we'll have to wait and see what the FCC and DOJ have to say about this matter). Of course, part of this is to ensure that new customers keep on buying radios while the deal is in limbo. But that's good news for those of us who have already invested.

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.
