DoubleClick reaffirms privacy position

"Despite recent comments in the media to the contrary, DoubleClick is committed to protecting the privacy of individuals on the internet," said Chantelle Kirkman, managing director, DoubleClick, TechSolutions Australia.

"Kevin O'Connor (CEO of DoubleClick) was recently attributed with saying that personal data such as user names and addresses could be supplied to online advertisers without a user's active consent or payment," she said. "This is simply untrue. DoubleClick does not and cannot capture those kinds of personal details."

Kirkman said DoubleClick's business was dependent upon consumers having the confidence to go online without fear of personal details being used in an unscrupulous manner.

"DoubleClick does use cookie technology as a means for ensuring frequency capping, the number of times an advertisement is presented to an individual. (But) to attempt to profit from the exploitation of individuals' online privacy would be a very short-termed approach and DoubleClick is here for the long haul.

"It just doesn't make good business sense," she said.

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.
