Oracle denies age discrimination charge

"We categorically deny all the allegations and we intend to make a vigorous defense," Jennifer Glass, an Oracle spokeswoman said in a phone interview.

Randy Baker, 55, a former Oracle executive vice president and management committee member, filed a lawsuit in San Francisco County Superior Court in February alleging age discrimination for his firing from the US database and tools vendor, Glass confirmed.

Baker is seeking $US18.5 million in damages, according to media reports.

Glass said Oracle will dispute a claim in the lawsuit that Oracle chief executive officer Larry Ellison, who is the same age as Baker, made derogatory comments to Baker about his age. "We deny all the allegations," Glass said.

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.

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.
