Further bridging the gap between MP3 technology and the mainstream consumer base is Philips's new MC-M250 Micro Hi-Fi System. It's a funky looking unit (whose yellow speaker grills were not too popular with people who saw it in our lab), but its size...
One of the main complaints lodged against NBA Live 2002 was its slow pace. Fans wanted a faster experience that was reminiscent of earlier titles on the Genesis, and they’re in luck — NBA Live 2003’s pulse has quickened dramatically. The preview vers...
Olympus has successfully taken the dictaphone and turned it into a computer peripheral. This small, light device has 16MB of built-in storage. That may not sound like much, but Olympus’s advanced DSP (digital signal processor) technology allows very ...
There’s a lot of innovative, nifty ideas floating around in Blinx: The Time Sweeper… but wonky controls, an unforgiving level of challenge, and a bizarre case of feline schizophrenia keep this cat from changing platform gaming history.

Poor little Linus has had to hide his security blanket from his horrible auntie who wants the grubby cloth relegated to the dustbin. The only problem is he hid it at Charlie Brown’s house and Charlie has managed to lose it. It is your job, as either ...
BlackIce, although often lumped together with personal firewalls such as ZoneAlarm and Kerio Personal Firewall, is an IDS (intrusion detection system), making it more like a nightclub bouncer than a swipecard entry system.
When Firaxis released the immensely popular game Civilization III last year, there was talk amongst developers of the game for a multiplayer update in the future. The rumour mill has finally stopped circulating and an expansion pack, Play the World,...
Both these tuner boxes are designed to be connected to a CRT or LCD monitor to watch TV with any signal, without having to power on your PC. Alternatively, you can hook up just about any external device including DVD players, VCRs, games consoles, a...
Anyone looking to up-grade a monitor would surely want to consider the latest Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) monitors available on the market. LCD monitors still use less power, weigh less, don’t flicker and give off less radiation than a Cathode Ray ...
In December 2002's print issue of PC World (on page 94) we talked about Intel's new 3.06GHz Pentium 4 CPU and three new chipsets -- the Intel 845PE, the enhanced version of the 850E, and the 845GE -- which will cater for it and its new feature, Hyper...

Windows .NET Server 2003 is almost here and many IT departments will be debating whether or not to upgrade their systems. There will be four main editions (Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter, and Web), and although the naming scheme is a little confus...
There are many laptops and convertibles on the market but few represent a full realisation of what a Windows-based convertible can be – a total marriage of Windows’ features with the hardware to make the most of it.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
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.
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.
