EditLive!

The installation process is quick and easy, but you have to install the Netscape plug-in separately - the main setup program creates an icon for Netscape installation, but the instructions don't mention that it won't install itself.

When you point your browser at a Web page that contains the appropriate codes, EditLive! is launched automatically and loads a specified page (not necessarily the one you're viewing). You can then use it to edit online materials with an interface much like that of a popular word processor. Saving your modified page will automatically update the original page on the server.

So far, so good, but there are lots of WYSIWYG Web editors already, so why do we need this one? The answer is of more interest to commercial service providers than individual users: the software enables clients to modify their own Web documents, while allowing administrators to control their degree of access. Almost any ability of this editor can be configured or restricted in the commercial version, from which files or parts of files the client is allowed to change, through to the fonts that can be used. This means that a company with a large Web site can, for example, easily allow employees to modify their own sections to update product information, without needing to worry about deviations from the official company style or accidental damage to important files.

EditLive! is hoping to find a market niche among companies with a lot of data to present on the Web, and its ability to specify the degree of freedom of clients makes it especially attractive in this role.

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.
