The future office: Yesterday, today, and tomorrow

The future never arrives as planned, but these wild innovations will certainly keep things interesting.

Technicolor Tomorrowland



Nostalgic for the days of future past? Highlights of this bold and bright retro-future office from the 1964 World's Fair include a genuine Ma Bell landline phone and a panel of video screens with TV static--not to mention garish colors, groovy plastic, and a secretary with matching white cap and gloves who looks like she just stepped off a Braniff Airways flight circa 1970. If the workplace of the future had turned out to be this colorful, we'd all be suffering from flash blindness, not carpal tunnel syndrome.

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.
