In Pictures: The 31 weirdest, wackiest and coolest sci/tech stories of 2012

From Google Android development to crazy iPhone stunts, it’s been a busy year

The CIA in July published a very interesting piece of its history, the once classified "Simple Sabotage Field Manual," which defines how the ordinary person could disrupt an ordinary environment, say an office "in such a way as to involve a minimum danger of injury, detection, and reprisal." The booklet was at the time of its distribution, aimed at defining ways to "sabotage the US' World War II enemies," the CIA said. Rather than dated, the "Five particularly timeless tips from the Simple Sabotage Field Manual" seem like they might be a screenwriters guide to penning a script for The Office TV show.

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.
