New version of Visual C++ for August release

Available in late August, Microsoft has announced the next version of its C++ development tool, Visual C++ 6.0.

Microsoft claims improved developer productivity from the new version with the addition of IntelliSense technology enabling users to write code faster and more easily. IntelliSense monitors what developers type and offers assistance with syntax, parameter information and APIs for example.

Improved Web and enterprise development support is also featured in the new version says Microsoft, including support for Dynamic HTML and Composite ActiveX Controls.

Visual C++ 6.0 will come in three editions: Standard, Professional and Enterprise. It will also be available as part of the Visual Studio 6.0 development system to be launched on September 21 at Microsoft's Developer Days '98.

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.
