Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be ridiculous, hit November 8

See if you can spot how many things don't go boom in Activision's apocalyptic debut trailer for the game

To paraphrase, it doesn't take the most powerful nations on earth to create the next global conflict — nope, just some skyscrapers-go-boom-now developers, channeling contemporary doomsayers.

Seriously though, the trailer for Call of Duty: MW3 looks less like a series of modern conflicts than an epic disaster flick just shy of something involving planet-devouring asteroids, Bruce Willis, and a Moonraker-style outer-space jaunt.

New York, London, Paris, Berlin — they're all here and thoroughly savaged by the development team's art and FX departments.

Things of interest in the trailer: Clip-tossing — just dramatic license, or will you be able to beg ammo from others? Subs? Speedboats? Underwater missions? Gatling-gunning in an AC-130 gunship? Some new "roll and toss a car just by pushing it" who-cares-about-physics feature?

Look for it November 8th, developed jointly by Activision rookie Sledgehammer and series doyen Infinity Ward. Or just wait a few weeks for a bazillion E3 2011 hands-on previews.

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.
