In Pictures: The high-tech world of Jeff Bezos

From rockets to newspapers to, Bezos is one busy guy

Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos has once again taken a dive onto the risky end of the pool by buying the Washington Post for $250 million. Bezos, who according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index was in 2012 listed as one of the wealthiest people in the world with an estimated net worth of $22.1 billion is no stranger to risky endeavors. One of his other passions is space. He owns Blue Origins, a company that is developing low-cost space habitats. And earlier this year his expedition firm trolled the Atlantic to find spent NASA Apollo-era rockets. But that’s just the beginning. Here’s a quick look at some of Bezos’ more interesting activities over the years.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
