AuDA takes control of dot-au domain

AuDA is to take over management of the dot-au (.au) space from Robert Elz, who has held administrative responsibility for the domain since 1985, as a result of a decision by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).

In response to the decision, auDA CEO Chris Disspain said: "The IANA's decision recognises that it's now time to move to a different arrangement for the administration of .au, one that reflects the changing role of the Internet in community and business life in Australia."

Once the delegation process is complete, auDA plans to implement a number of initiatives for domain management over the next few weeks. These include the introduction of competition in domain name registration, changes to name policy and the introduction of an Australian domain name dispute-resolution process.

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

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
