Free news and finance -- at the touch of a button

The local arm of Internet navigational organisation Yahoo! has launched a new version of its To-Go service, expanding it to include search, news and finance information.

The To-Go service allows Web publishers to add a Yahoo! button to their pages and thereby provide customer access to the Yahoo! site and specialised search engines -- all for free.

The new tools allow Web designers to customise the area of interest on the site. News Search allows for a keyword to be entered into the search form and Yahoo! then provides the pre-programmed button which can be copied and pasted into any HTML page. Then when the button is selected on the Web page, a search is automatically started to locate the latest news surrounding the keyword.

The Finance Search operates in a similar way, with a Web designer entering an Australian Stock Exchange stock ticker. Stock prices, company profile and financial news articles can be retrieved by clicking on the button.

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.
