Yahoo money gets within cooee

Seek, which hosts more than 28,000 job advertisements, will be Yahoo's principal supplier of employment listings, although Tony Faure, Yahoo's local MD, maintained the deal would not give the internet company exclusive rights to Seek content.

Faure said Yahoo currently had around 30 arrangements with content providers, including the ABC and Reuters, but he stressed that deals with Australian companies had not previously incurred any investment from Yahoo. "It's a matter of looking at each business arrangement you want to make on a case-by-case basis," he explained.

Faure said Seek would benefit from the cash injection, which would in turn increase Yahoo's market power.

Meanwhile, Paul Bassat, CEO of Australia and New Zealand-based Seek, maintained his company had no immediate plans to expand its operations outside Australia and New Zealand, despite Yahoo's international presence. Instead, he said his company would use the Yahoo cash injection to provide as many Australian and New Zealand site visitors with as many job vacancy advertisements as possible.

Faure said Yahoo would consider making further investments outside the US, but did not specify any imminent deals.

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.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

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.

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.
