In Pictures: Facebook turns 10 - A look back at the milestones

A lot has happened since Mark Zuckerberg and his friends launched a website from their dorm room.

The Yahoo! acquisition that never happened In the summer of 2006, Zuckerberg reportedly agreed to a $1 billion acquisition from Yahoo. Shortly afterward, Yahoo reported disappointing quarterly sales and earnings, and delayed the launch of a new digital advertising project. The result was a 22% overnight drop in stock price. Part of the fallout included reducing the offer for Facebook to $800 million. Zuckerberg rejected the offer and called off the deal in September 2006, even holding steady when Yahoo CEO Terry Semel came back with another $1 billion offer two months later.

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.

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.
