QuickTime movies from Cannes Film Festival

The Cannes International Film Festival is an event that most of can't attend, but this year we have a chance to see what's happening behind the scenes.

David Lynch, director of Hollywood cult classics for TV and the big screen, is at Cannes this year and is sending back QuickTime video clips of the event. In fact, David is the Chairman of the Selection Committee charged with picking the winners of this year's festival.

The QuickTime videos are being posted to David's Web site and are available as pay-per-view movies. For US$3.94, users can see approximately 15 videos from the event. Members of David's Web site can also send him questions, which he will answer and post as a video on the Web site.

The video is shot, edited and posted the same day it happens, using Final Cut Pro, Media cleaner Pro and several Macintosh G4s, Eric Bassett, designer of DavidLynch.com told MacCentral.

Held in Cannes, France, the festival is host to some of the world's top celebrities. Attendees this year include Jack Nicholson, Sandra Bullock, Matt Damon, Ralph Fiennes and Sharon Stone among others.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
