Web authoring, design explodes

With all this Internet growth, somebody has to build those Web pages. Market research company IDC says revenues from sales of worldwide Web authoring and design software hit $US243 million in 1998. That figure represents a 144 per cent jump in growth from 1997, the research company says.

IDC expects continued growth during the next few years and projects revenues to surge past $US1 billion by the middle of 2002. And so much for the idea that the Macintosh is a design stronghold -- IDC says the Mac segment of this market is in decline. Revenues on this platform will shrink from $US34 million in 1998 to $US29 million in 2003. During that time, Windows revenues will grow from $US209 million to more than $US1.2 billion.

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.
