Court rejects Telstra's appeal against LSS decisions

Telstra's appeal against three recent ACCC decisions in LSS disputes has been largely rejected by the Federal Court, with the judge finding the ACCC erred in just two minor matters.

The Federal Court has mostly dismissed Telstra's (ASX:TLS) appeal against a series of decisions the ACCC had made in recent line sharing services (LSS) disputes.

The presiding judge, Justice Lindgren, found merit in just two of the 11 grounds for appeal Telstra had filed, finding that the ACCC erred in its handling of a minor, one-off disconnection charge.

But the judgement has confirmed the ACCC's overall approach to setting prices for LSS, including fixing a rental charge at $2.50 per month.

The matter will be back before the court on October 22, when the final orders will be heard.

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.
