Nasdaq continues to fall

The drop followed more Microsoft losses. The company fell 5 per cent in the morning after cautious analyst commentary on its growth. Another big loser was Compuware, which dropped 37 per cent amid disappointment over its earnings, losing $US7.50, to $12.56.

Microsoft and Compuware were the two most actively traded stocks on the Nasdaq in morning trading, but they weren't the only tech issues to lose ground. Cisco Systems lost 5 per cent to $66.13. Sun Microsystems added to recent losses with an additional 6 per cent drop to $82.88. IBM was down 4 per cent at midday to $114.31, and Intel lost almost 3 per cent to $127.19.

Yahoo was a rare exception in the tech sector, reversing a recent downslide with a 5 per cent gain to $140 at midday. But internet peers Amazon.com and Inktomi dropped 4 per cent each, to $60.63 and $129.50, respectively. Internet Capital Group also lost 10 per cent to $51.75.

But the Dow retained its confident posture in morning training. Building on recent gains, it was up 121.54 at midday, to 11408.62. Coca-Cola was among its big winners, up nearly 5 per cent to $49.38. Wal-Mart was up 1.5 per cent to $64.31.

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.
