Stan Winston RIP (7 April, 1946 - 17 June, 2008)

We showcase the work of Hollywood’s most revered special-effects artists, the late, great Stan Winston.

It is not often that we report on movie news, but the passing of special-effects expert Stan Winston is certainly worthy of remembrance. The award-wining film veteran and special-effects guru died today at the age of 62, after battling multiple myeloma, a plasma cell cancer, for seven years.
Winston was responsible for creating the special-effects, animatronics and creature costumes for countless memorable movies, including Alien, Predator, Terminator, Titanic and Jurassic Park. Over his 40-year career, he worked alongside such illustrious directors as Steven Spielberg, James Cameron and Tim Burton, as well as cult favourites like John Carpenter and Joe Dante. For a trip down memory lane, check out the following slideshow for some of Stan’s most enduring creations.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.
