Australian domain name system set for sweeping changes

The board has accepted the recommendations in full which include no limit on the number of domain names per entity and the creation of a 'reserved list' for domain names that may not be licensed.

Domain names will continue to be allocated on a 'first come, first served' basis and with continued renewal periods.

The board is also seeking to remove the prohibition on generic domain names in the com.au space and will undertake further work to determine a method of allocating generic names.

The issue of geographic domain names will be considered by the board following a report on the creation of new, second-level domain names. AuDA CEO Chris Disspain said the changes will take effect in the second half of 2001 in conjunction with the introduction of competition in the domain name services market. A full report is available at http://www.auda.org.au/.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

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.
