In pictures: 10 tech titans and their temper tantrums

Just because you're an innovative tech industry heavyweight doesn't mean you can't throw a good fit when you don't get your way

Michael Arrington The TechCrunch founder has never shied away from fights and controversy, but he met his biggest challenge in May of 2011 when he announced that he planned to help manage a fund that would invest in companies TechCrunch would cover, with a promise of "transparency" that would trump old-fashioned journalistic ethics.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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.
