In pictures: Revenge is a dish best served electronically - 12 cautionary tales

These scorned IT staffers had their vengeance on their former employers -- but most got their comeuppance in the end

Chris Mohney: The subtle knife We'll end this slideshow with an example that's from the tech world, but reminds you that culture-hacking can be as painful as the technical kind. When Tumblr decided to shut down its Storyboard effort and lay off the paid editors it had hired to run it, it did so with a post on company founder David Karp's Tumblr that lavished smarmy praise on the team before casually mentioning they'd been canned.

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.

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

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.
