Political appetite for online porn

The article, published online in the World Net Daily, reports that according to technicians who worked on the system, material downloaded by people using White House computers allegedly included streaming sex videos, gay pornography, and sexual activities with donkeys, goats and dogs.

The Clinton Administration has been prominent in promoting the use of legal and technical measures to block pornography on the Internet.

Staff at Government departments in Australia have also been found to have an interest in sexually explicit online material.

An Australian-based censorship watchdog site carries extensive listings of the IP addresses of computers located in government departments which have accessed Web pages containing nude and pornographic images maintained by the site's owner, Bernadette Taylor. Taylor's site logs more than 1200 visits to a selection of four pornographic web sites linked to from her site and includes IP addresses of those visitors.

The lists include the names of the Australian government departments whose staff have visited the sites, and includes visitors from the WA Health Department, Australian Defence Organisation, Parliament House, the Department of Workplace Relations and Small Business and the Government Secure Gateway Environment, amongst others.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
