When a virus IS a threat

Anti-virus software company Sophos has announced a new electronic news service that is intended to assist PC users in deciphering hoaxes from real virus threats.

Called enews, the new service is free and can be subscribed to at the company's Web site, http://www.sophos.com.

Richard Baldy, director of Sophos Australia, says PC users often can't tell whether news of a virus represents an "immediate threat, a low-level background risk, or a hoax".

"enews is designed to provide this information, saving companies money and increasing security be ensuring that they can match their response to the threat," he says in a statement.

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.

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.
