Ida Rhodes: Language designer

In the early 1950s Ida Rhodes, who came to the U.S. from Ukraine in 1913, designed the computer language C-10 for the UNIVAC I computer system, which was used to calculate the census. She also designed and programmed the original computer used by the Social Security Administration. Rhodes was widely recognized as a pioneer in designing modern computers; one source cites that at a 1952 conference, Rhodes presented a paper describing a future with desktop computers, multiple programming languages and video displays.

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.
