In Pictures: Worst data breaches of 2013 (part 3!)

The Identity Theft Resource Center has recorded 450 data breaches so far this year, and here are the worst that become known between July and September

Healthcare provider Cogent Healthcare disclosed in August that information related to about 32,000 patients seen by its doctor groups had been compromised after a security lapse by vendor M2ComSy related to its firewall allowed this patient data be exposed to the Internet and even indexed by Google. Cogent Healthcare ended its relationship with M2ComSys, took possession of hardware in use there, and also worked with Google to take down any sensitive patient information.

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.
