If you're looking for a good movie to watch tonight while curled up in the sofa with your significant other, Arduino: The Documentary may...not be the right film for you. But if you're as crazy over hacks and DIY projects as we here at GeekTech are, you owe it to yourself to take some time and watch it.

Arduino, of course, is a popular hardware toolkit/platform that's often used for prototyping, or more creatively, for various hacks and DIY tech projects (many of which we've featured on this very blog).

The documentary has been released under a Creative Commons Non-Commercial/Share-Alike license, and you can watch a stream of it on the Arduino Documentary site. English- and Spanish-language versions are available, and a torrent and direct-download should be available soon. Check it out!

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.
