In Pictures: Gearhead. Weird Websites

Here are some fine examples of the madness of the Internet.

The World's First Jet Powered Beer Cooler - Keeping your beer really cold is a challenge. But Simon Jansen found a solution that relied on the fact that when liquid rapidly expands into a gas it extracts heat from its surroundings. Simon used a gas turbine to drain the propane tank as fast as possible. This created a serious cooling effect in the water bath surrounding the tank in which he placed his beer.

Simon noted: "The final result after running the engine for about 5 minutes … The engine itself will run at up to 100,000 rpm with exhaust temperatures of around 500 C and noise levels in excess of 125 dBA. The beer is successfully chilled to a nice cool 2 C."

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.
