Software review: PC: IronStorm

So World War I never ended, right? No, of course not. It carried on going right up to 1964, when the game is set. Axis and Allied armies still exist, but under different names. Waging war is an expensive business, so in order to raise cash both armie...

Software review: PC: Butt-Ugly Martians: Martian Boot Camp

Based on the TV show (screening on Network 10 and Fox Kids), this space game is set in 2053 and features the three Butt-Ugly Martians: B.Bop-A-Luna, 2-T-Fru-T and Do-Wah-Diddy. They are sent on a mission to invade Earth by their evil leader Emperor B...

A small company named e.Digital hopes to challenge Apple’s iPod MP3 player with its new voice-activated, hard-drive-based $US349 Odyssey 1000. Among its many features are 20GB of storage, USB 2.0 connectivity and voice-recognition technology that let...

Software review: PS2: Pro Evolution Soccer 2

Electronic Arts’ FIFA soccer series displayed the same in-depth knowledge of the game as the average American when the US hosted the World Cup. Its arcade action had defenders running past 10 men to score a goal, while an overhead kick from midfield ...

Software review: Links 2003

Links 2003 has an incredible amount of depth, yet it doesn’t stop the casual gamer from playing. If, like me, you are new to this golf series, you’ll find it perfectly easy to pick up and play. You can be off on the fairways in a matter of moments, h...

Adaptec VideOh DVD

Life is tough for analog cam­corder owners. There are very few decent hardware devices that allow us to capture top-quality footage directly from Hi8, Video8, S-VHS and VHS sources to our hard disks.

Iomega HDD 120GB

Iomega’s hard disk drive range uses existing hard drive technology bundled into an easy-to-use, port­able external case.

O2 Xda PDA / mobile phone

Touted as the ultimate all-in-one device for mobile professionalism, O2’s Xda can handle e-mail, voice calls, browse the Web and manage your diary. It measures a svelte 129x73x18mm, and weighs just 201g — much smaller than a jacketed iPaq. Its hard...

PartitionMagic 8.0

PowerQuest’s PartitionMagic soft­ware — long recognised as the best program for creating, resiz­ing and generally working with hard-drive partitions — has always come with a warning that it might destroy data

Norton Personal Firewall 2003

Like its competition at the top of this page, this software protects against unauthorised PC access, which means that even when your computer is connected to the Internet, no one can get in and browse your files.

McAfee Firewall 4.0 (2003)

Traversing the Internet’s highways and byways unguarded is a fool­hardy endeavour. On installation, Firewall 4.0 scans various aspects of the host computer, looking for security holes. It also treats users to a visual trace of given domains, includin...

Creative MegaWorks THX 5.1 550 speakers

Virtual PC for Windows 5.0

Virtual PC for Windows seems like a bit of a strange idea at first. After all, you already have a fully functional PC, why bother emulating another?

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.
