Cataclysm sells 4.7 million

World of Warcraft is still big

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

Blizzard sent out a press release announcing 4.7 million sales of World of Warcraft expansion Cataclysm in just one month. Guess how much it sold in just one day?

According to Blizzard, day-one worldwide sales totaled 3.3 million, meaning 70 percent of Cataclysm's impressive sales happened in just 24 hours. If World of Warcraft is really as big as Blizzard says it is at 12 million players, that means that only 40 percent of WoW players own Cataclysm.

The only reason these numbers mean anything to you is that Blizzard now needs more employees to meet World of Warcraft demand. Included in the press release is a link to Blizzard's jobs page -- with a hefty number of internships alongside WoW jobs.

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.
