Secret Service, Citicorp Team to Fight Fraud

The announcement was made at the two-day National Summit on Identity Theft convened by Treasury Secretary Lawrence H. Summers yesterday. The summit includes more than 150 participants from federal, state and local government agencies; financial institutions; credit-card companies and reporting agencies; as well as identity theft victims and consumer advocacy groups.

"Criminals are exploiting new technologies to make a significant profit from an old crime," Summers said in the statement. "We will continue to work with the private sector to strengthen our efforts to combat this threat."

The program being developed by the Secret Service and Citicorp will devise a strategy to identify suspicious e-commerce activities, including forged identities and other schemes used to commit bank and credit fraud.

At yesterday's summit, Summers also said that the Secret Service is developing a computer-based training program to help law enforcement officials handle financial crimes.

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.
