Willing to promote Windows 7? Earn US$1,004 for a day's work

Microsoft to pay Windows 7 'promoters' US$100 an hour

Microsoft Hong Kong is now recruiting Windows 7 promoters who will be paid HK$7,777 (US$1,004) each for a day's work in late October when the software giant launches its new OS.

The vendor has created a group on Facebook to invite individuals aged 15 or above, speaking fluent Cantonese and English, and possessing basic computer knowledge to post their one-minute self-introduction videos on the Chinese-language page. As of 3:20pm Monday, there are only four videos uploaded.

Microsoft will also accept videos to be taken on spot next Saturday at its recruitment booth in Causeway Bay.

According to information on the group page, the firm will hire seven promoters who will only need to work for Microsoft for a day. Besides promoting the new OS, the promoters will also do media interviews during the 10-hour work day.

In the first round, Microsoft will pick 30 candidates who must attend a Windows 7 workshop and create a video that introduces the latest OS. The seven winning videos will be selected by a judging panel and Facebook users, said Microsoft.

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.
