Olympic ticket sales online -- maybe

Details are yet to be finalised, but the organisation is planning to sell tickets via the Internet, telephone and box office, a spokesperson from SOCOG media said.

Last year, members of the public were able to lodge first-round application forms for Olympic tickets over the Internet. "We are moving to a live order system this year. That is the difference," said the spokesperson.

The spokesperson refused to comment on specific details regarding how the online system will work until a final decision on the ticketing procedure is announced.

More than 3.5 million Olympic tickets were sold to the Australian public last year. According to reports, an additional 1.4 million will be available throughout 2000.

SOCOG is expected to resume general tickets sales in March.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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.
