AAP Puts the Whole Lot Online

Targeted at corporate and business customers, NewsCentre comprises three separate information products, NewsCast, NewsClip and eClips, all deliverable electronically via e-mail or intranet.

NewsCast is an online news service providing news and text feeds from AAP and other newspapers including the Australian Financial Review, The Australian, The Sydney Morning Herald, The West Australian, Herald Sun, Courier Mail and Canberra Times. Users can access specialised news throughout the day, receive complementary news alerts and search for archived information.

NewsClip provides users with online access to the full text of stories appearing in the major newspapers. Paul Reid, AAP's business manager for NewsCentre, said users are able to customise the service to provide news relating to their company, competitors and clients. Additionally, users are able to share the information easily via standard Internet browsers or e-mail.eClips is a complementary service to NewsClip, which allows users to actually view an image of the article as it appears in print. Reid said eClips is similar to a traditional clipping service but allows clippings to be delivered electronically in PDF format.

According to Reid, NewsClip and eClips represent AAP's first moves in the media monitoring market. In addition to news, users can also access other information including stocks and company details using an ASIC (Australian Securities and Investments Commission) database, Reid said.

According to AAP, all services are subscription based with the pricing models based on AAP's current packages. NewsCast and NewsClip are charged on a basic monthly fee while eClips charges are based on usage, officials 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.
