IP Privacy configures your Web browsers to use anonymous proxy severs, hiding your true identity when you're on the Internet.
- Can help technical novices protect their privacy
- More technical users can get the same effect without this application
Not a revolutionary technology, but an easy way to use existing functionality, IP Privacy works well. More technical users will struggle to justify the outlay, however.

The Web is full of snoopers, spyware, and people who want to steal your private information. IP Privacy ($45, 3-day free trial) can help protect you against them by helping you surf anonymously — that is, hiding your IP address and other personal information that websites can gather about you.
IP Privacy does this primarily by configuring your Web browsers to use anonymous proxy servers. Your browser in essence browses the Web by way of those servers, which hides your identity as you surf. IP Privacy finds the servers for you, tests to see that they're working, and then sets your browsers to use those proxy servers.
The technically minded can do this themselves, without use of software, by fiddling with various settings. IP Privacy isn't for them. Instead, it's for those who worry about their privacy, but aren't technically proficient enough to set up proxies themselves.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
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.
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.
