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.

Facebook reaches 1 billion users Facebook reached 1 billion users in September 2012, but, for reasons that went unexplained, it didn't announce the milestone until October. That announcement consisted of a brief blog post written by Zuckerberg that thanked Facebook users for the company’s success.

The announcement, however, was the only humble thing about Facebook at the time. It took the site six and a half years to record its first 500 million users, and just 26 months to do it again. By then, users had uploaded more than 219 billion photos to the site and clicked "Like" more than 1.13 trillion times.

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.
