NSW to get Y2K disclosure law

Legislation that is intended to encourage the disclosure of year 2000 information has been introduced into the NSW State Parliament this week.

The Year 2000 Information Disclosure Bill 1999, is complementary to similar Commonwealth legislation introduced this year, and will provide NSW businesses with a secure environment in which they can exchange information about Y2K issues, says a joint statement from Attroney General Jeff Shaw and Minister for Information Technology, Kim Yeadon.

The legislation will enable organisations and individuals to make statements about Y2K issues affecting their business (such as the compliance or non-compliance of products), without fear of legal action.

Yeadon also released news of the NSW Government's Year 2000 report today, announcing that the NSW public sector has completed an estimated 85 per cent of work need to address potential Y2K problems.

According to the report, 90 per cent of the 109 Government departments and state-owned corporations are on track for the October deadline set by the NSW Government.

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.

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.
