New Xtractor extracts files from DVDs

HEURIS, makers of the MPEG Power Professional encoding software, are shipping a shipping a new product: the Xtractor, which can be used to extract or "rip" audio and video files from unencrypted DVDs. Users can demultiplex and extract elementary streams from MPEG 1 system streams, MPEG2 program streams, and MPEG 2 transport streams, including HDTV streams recorded with a DTV decoder card.

The Xtractor can also be used to extract DVD VR formatted MPEG streams recorded with Hitachi DZMV100 DVD camera or Panasonic's DMR-E20 line of DVD recorders. This lets you add new and different audio tracks to encoded video streams or simply to recover elementary streams from a finished DVD project.

The Xtractor is compatible with the traditional Mac operating system (there's no mention of a Mac OS X version). To use it, you select an output folder, drag and drop the MPEG file onto Xtractor, and the MPEG elementary streams are extracted and saved to the output directory.

The Xtractor is currently available directly from HEURIS for US$149. You can purchase it from the company's Web site.

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.
