Pirated copy of Halo 3 hits the Internet

Days before its release, a pirated copy of Halo 3 makes its way to the Internet for illegal download.

Several piracy sites began hosting downloads earlier this week of the full and complete Halo 3 disc.

On Thursday, it was reported that many UK retailers had broken the game's street date given the anticipated demand.

Due to its popularity leading up to a 2004 launch, Halo 2 was also made available online as an illegal download.

It's worth noting that pirated games only work on modified Xbox 360 units. Additionally, daring gamers who meddle in piracy run the risk of being permanently banned from Xbox Live, or worse, facing legal action.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
