Universities refuse to ban Napster

Princeton University, Duke University, the University of California at Berkeley, and others said last week that they would continue to allow their students to use the embattled MP3-sharing service.

King sent a letter to a number of universities in September asking them to ban Napster use on their campuses, charging that it enables music piracy. These universities included Harvard, Columbia, Stanford, and others.

A lawsuit filed in April by King named as defendants Yale University, Indiana University, and the University of Southern California. In refusing the ban, despite the implied lawsuit threat, many universities cited concerns over censorship and academic freedom.

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.
