Book Review: Exploiting the Internet

Exploiting the Internet is aimed at the entrepreneur or small business owner who wants to implement an Internet connectivity strategy and an online presence for their business. It starts off by explaining the virtues of the Internet, and the best ways a business can connect to the Internet and use it to its advantage.

Exploiting the internet, by Tim O'Brien

The author puts forward his case with a lot of 'management speak'. Terms such as 'knowledge workers' (key employees) and 'gathering competitive intelligence' (Web searching) are bandied about early in the book to explain why your key workers (and your business overall) will succeed if they have excellent Internet access.

The author goes on to explain how to do business over the Internet and examines issues such as online shopping, the cataloguing of products, security and customer service. The information in this book is presented in the form of frequently asked questions (FAQ), which makes looking for a desired topic quick and easy.

This is a recommended read for anyone who wants to expand a small to medium business by using the global reach of the information superhighway.

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.

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.
