Austar goes shopping

Communications company Austar and multimedia retailer TVSN have signed a deal to drive the interactive shopping cart.

The $20 million deal gives Austar a 50 per cent stake in TVSN, which will offer its range of products on Austar's interactive Open TV platform for at least ten years.

The companies also plan to increase their ecommerce offering through Markfoys.com, and its counterpart iTVSN, however the latter, as yet, is only a single web page.

TVSN plans to offer a range of products through the Open TV platform which would be featured in programs and advertised. The platform is set to kick off by the end of this year.

In a statement, Austar CEO John Porter said the deal offered the company "a critical piece of the value chain faster and more effectively".

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.
