S3's Rio division invests in ETC music player

The music player, which ETC Music describes as similar to an ATM (automated teller machine), allows traditional record stores to offer digital music for download to in-store customers, the companies said in a statement. S3 and ETC Music did not disclose the financial terms of the deal.

The MusicTeller, which ETC Music will begin testing November 1, allows users to plug in a portable player, find music to buy or retrieve from archived music files, click on a download button and load the player within a matter of minutes, the companies said.

Prices for digital music downloaded though the MusicTeller will range from free promotional tracks to "more expensive" live music or previously unreleased material that will be released on a limited basis, ETC Music and S3 said.

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.
