Windows 9x - Hide future tasks in Outlook

One option: use the Due Date rather than the Start Date. To hide a task with a Due Date more than a week away, select View-Current View-Next Seven Days - but don't enter separate Start and Due dates, or you may be reminded to do something too late.

Another option, and the only one that actually understands the concept of a start date, is View-Current View-Task Timeline. This will give you an entirely different view of your tasks - one where each task marks or blocks out the space between its Start Date and its Due Date.

If you use Outlook 98 or 2000, you may want to alter your Outlook Today view as well. Go to Outlook Today. Then in Outlook 98, click Options; or in Outlook 2000, click Customize Outlook Today. In the Tasks section, for "In my task list, show me", select Today's tasks. Click Save Changes. (But remember, Microsoft assumes "Today's tasks" are those due today, not starting today. Oh, well.)

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.
