Hurricane Sandy hits

Lessons from 9/11 helped New York and New Jersey’s financial industry prepare well for the brunt of Hurricane Sandy, as distributed data centers, generators and hardened networks enabled businesses – including major Internet hubs -- to carry on for the most part. Not to say that there also weren’t plenty of flooded data centers and ruined equipment. Cell phone networks stood up better than they did during last year’s storms, and carriers supplemented coverage with charging stations for those without power. Fuel availability proved to be one issue, as Verizon and others were challenged to find the gas needed to power generators and fuel up service vehicles. Scammers naturally jumped into the Hurricane fray, too, looking to plunder those vulnerable to their online tricks.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
