In Pictures: IT toolbox for the iPad

In case of emergency, tap these handy tools for network and server admins

Hot-e-V 1.0

This app from down under is currently the only iPad implementation of the RemoteFX client protocol -- an RDP replacement that leverages graphics processors inside the server to present rich, 3D graphics to thin clients. I’ve been doing a bit of testing and heavy graphics applications such as AutoCAD, Revit, and Matlab that run off the shared virtual machines as fast or faster than a dedicated workstation. I haven’t used it often because RemoteFX is currently a royal pain to get running on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. But when Windows Server 8 fulfills the promise of drop-dead easy RemoteFX implementation, I’m ready.

Price: $14.99 Developer: ThinLinX Compatibility: iPad only; iOS 4.3 or later

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.
