A look back at the most memorable tech-related happenings of 1989

Video game champ dies in fall As a New Jersey teenager in 1982, Scott Safran had set a world record playing the video arcade game Asteroids. “He quit when his score reached a stratospheric 41,336,440 - with several ships in reserve,” according to this story. Two decades later, with the record still standing, Safran received a posthumous award for his achievement after an exhaustive search for him revealed that he had died in 1989 in a fall from an apartment balcony.

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.

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.
