CES - No light? Take the photo anyway

Sometimes, you just don't have adequate light for your photo, even if you carry around thousands of dollars' worth of lighting equipment (which most of us don't).

Sleek Sony desktop makes its mark

Fashion mavens and other demanding aesthetes should find little fault with Sony's latest all-in-one PC: The US$2100 VAIO VGC-LS1 is gorgeous. I looked at a shipping model, and its design was superb--trumping even the Apple iMac--but our tests indicat...

SMBs should consider personal workstations

Anybody looking for a computer that will help get critical work done, and needs superior graphics power, may want to forgo a standard desktop in favour of a different class of system, such as HP's xw4400 Personal Workstation.

Sony Cyber-shot DSCW7

The Sony Cyber-shot DSCW7 has a 7.2 megapixel CCD, which is plenty for a point-and-shoot camera. It sports a 3X optical zoom and a big, 2.5" LCD, and forgoes extensive scene modes in favour of some manual controls.

AMD dual-core chip delivers power boost

AMD fans need wait no longer for dual-core desktop processors -- they're ready now. And in our exclusive tests of an AMD reference system, we found that it beat Intel's dual-core Pentium Extreme Edition across the board.

Pentium Extreme Edition 840

Our tests show Intel's new dual-core desktop processors should deliver some real benefits when used with software designed to take advantage of the two cores, or when you're performing multiple tasks simultaneously--virus scanning while surfing the W...

Supreme court standards for peer-to-peer

Although some people may not like it, copyright laws and regulations exist. Those who engage in mass copying and distribution of copyrighted works typically must pay licensing fees, or at least enter into an agreement with the owner of the content. T...

Nikon Coolpix 8400

The 3.5X optical lens on Nikon's new $900 Coolpix 8400 starts at 24mm--the widest angle in its class, and excellent for shooting massive monuments and vast landscapes.

Consumer Electronics Show blowout in Vegas: CES 2005 kicks off

Blue laser products emerge

High-capacity DVDs based on blue laser technology are still a way off for consumers, but video professionals may soon get their hands on the new storage technology.

TVs of the Future: Flat and Huge

Bigger, brighter, and unwired--that's what the new crop of flat-panel TVs from LG Electronics, Samsung, and Sharp promises for consumers in 2004. But don't rush out to the store just yet: Many of the most exciting models are at least a few months awa...

DVD recorders do double duty

The latest DVD recorders do a lot more than just burn to DVDs. New models let you play and record VHS video, while others add hard drives and programming guides to give you TiVo-like functionality.

Multimedia devices debut

A pair of new Sony multiformat recordable DVD drives and an NEC projector that uses mirrors instead of lenses to get the picture across are among the noteworthy product announcements at the National Association of Broadcasters convention, NAB 2003, i...

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
