US ATTACK: Apple Expo show in Paris cancelled

The European showcase for all things Apple has fallen victim to last week's terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York. Apple Expo, which was to have taken place in Paris Sept. 26-30, is cancelled.

"We're cancelling Apple Expo in the wake of last week's devastating and tragic events," said Steve Jobs, Apple Computer Inc.'s chief executive officer (CEO), according to a message on the show's Web site http://www.apple-expo.com/ on Monday. "We're sorry to disappoint our users and developers, but their safety is our primary concern," the message concluded.

A spokeswoman for the show's Paris-based organizer, Reed-OIP, confirmed that Jobs had cancelled the show, which Reed runs on behalf of Apple.

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.
