In years gone by, Australian overseas travellers typically employed two 'skills' when attempting to converse with the native population. The first and most popular method involved making wild gesticulations while talking like a lobotomised zombie ("d...
While the megapixels continue to climb on digital still cameras, one area we haven't seen much movement is the video recording capabilities of these units. That is set to change with the Kodak EasyShare V1253, which boasts high-definition video recor...
The GZ-HD3 is a relatively affordable entry into the high-definition HDD camcorder market. With an RRP of just $1849, it is certainly a lot cheaper than JVC's previous HD effort, the Everio GZ-HD7, yet ironically, its cost-cutting methods come at a h...

Not being a regular worshipper at the temple of Ultima Online's Richard Garriott, we sat down with our own set of reservations as we began to play Tabula Rasa. We weren't really in the mood to be summoned from up high into a sci-fi environment to do ...
The Toshiba Satellite X200 (PSPBUA-00N007) is the second of Toshiba's high-end gaming notebooks we've looked at and we like its style. It's Toshiba's answer to the Dell XPS range, such as the Dell XPS M1730, or the ASUS G series, such as the ASUS G2...
In the age where your mobile phone is also your camera, your MP3 player, your portable storage device and hopefully soon an all-in-one breakfast maker, it is refreshing to see that some phone accessories are still keeping it simple. Energizer's Energ...

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.
