SpikeRadio to target international youth

Spike Networks' newly created division Spike Internet Radio will launch a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week online radio station targeting the international "hard-core urban youth culture", says the company.

August 1 will see the debut of SpikeRadio (http://www.spikeradio.com), stocked to the brim with "aggressive original programming" -- an "attitude-laden mix of music, news and live chat all live from SpikeRadio's headquarters in Los Angeles", according to a company statement. The service will offer streaming audio and video, says the company.

A promotional campaign the size of $2.2 million will launch SpikeRadio whilst Spike Networks forecasts revenues of $5.3 million by June 30 through advertising activity on the station.

In related news, Spike Networks share price has continued to slide since the company's listing on the Australian Stock Exchange last Friday. Today Spike shares fell to a low of $1.23 and closed at $1.26, 19 cents below the IPO price of $1.45.

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.
