Lights, camera, action: the Facebook movie

Director David Fincher is reportedly in advanced talks with Columbia Pictures to direct the The Social Network

You know you've made it big-time when a movie is made about you. Remember last year when we heard news of the story behind Facebook coming soon to cineplex near you? Today we are hearing that the movie, called The Social Network, is approaching production schedule, set for sometime at the end of this year.

Director David Fincher is reportedly in advanced talks with Columbia Pictures to direct the The Social Network, according to a story from Variety. The script is written by Aaron Sorkin and is based on an adaptation of the upcoming book Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal, written by Ben Mezrich.

Fincher has already directed many successful movies such as Seven, Fight Club, Zodiac and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Scott Rudin, Michael De Luca, Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti are reportedly all set to produce The Social Network.

Ben Mezrich's book on Facebook will be on shelves on July 14, but already has a review on Amazon from Kevin Spacey. His review (keep in mind he is producing the movie based on this book) however puts an interesting angle on how the movie might turn out to be: "a captivating story of betrayal, vast amounts of cash, and two friends who revolutionized the way humans connect to one another-only to have an enormous falling out and never speak again."

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

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.
