Emusic, Universal team up for music downloads

EMusic.com Inc. and Universal Music Group (UMG) today announced a new program that makes available tracks from about 1,000 UMG albums through EMusic's downloadable music subscription service.

Part of a consumer trial program, the collection represents a cross-section of UMG's back catalog. The subscription service allows users to download as much music as they want for a monthly fee. The files, in MP3 format, can be played back on the Mac, burned to CD or transferred to MP3 audio players including Apple Computer Inc.'s iPod, according to EMusic.

UMG eLabs president Larry Kenswil explained that the new effort is part of an attempt by his company to "expand the ways" it distributes its arts music "through legitimate online services."

UMG includes record labels like Decca, Deutsche Grammophon, Interscope Geffen A&M, Island Def Jam Music Group, Lost Highway Records, MCA Nashville, MCA Records, Mercury, Motown, and more. A free two week trial to EMusic is available online.

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.
