Relatively Yours II

The interface is twofold - individuals and family. To start, you set up a few individuals with photos and other multimedia attachments. You then enter biographical and other information (fields are included for source citation and repositories). The program is event based, so you can enter much more information than just birth, death and marriage.

Multiple marriages and divorces can be recorded, as well as other events as varied as military service or buying the first house. You can also create your own events. One thing you can't enter is same-sex relationships (although you can have de facto ones): the program will only give the opposite sex as possible partners.

Two good features are the maps and historical information. You can visually relate events in a person's life to the places where they occurred, and see the larger worldview as well. Relatively Yours II also works with the Internet, so you can download detailed district and street level maps for individuals.

The program can produce many types of reports, ranging from tasks to be finished for each person to complete ancestor or descendant family trees. Alternatively, you can create your own reports and send them to family members. With the help of a wizard, family circulars can be created in a few clicks.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
