In pictures: 10 trends in IT spending for 2014

After years of maintenance-only spending, IT leaders are ready to invest. Find out which technologies - and which IT professionals - are pulling down the dough.

Calling all contractors While companies are hiring and expanding in-house IT skills, it is next to impossible to cover the range of skills required to support today's modern infrastructure.

That finding is consistent with Computerworld reporting that sees the tech industry shifting toward a more independent, contingent IT workforce.

TEKsystems survey respondents said temporary headcount at their organizations is typically deployed for emerging needs like a new security initiative or mobile app development.

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.
