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.

Sean Parker named president The famous scene in The Social Network depicting Sean Parker discovering Thefacebook.com on a girl's laptop has some truth to it. According to a Vanity Fair profile, Parker came across the site on the laptop of his roommate’s girlfriend, who was a Stanford student at the time.

Parker was named Facebook’s president in the summer of 2004, and although his tenure ended after an arrest for cocaine possession in 2005, his impact on the company is considered pivotal to its success. The aforementioned 2010 Vanity Fair profile says, "Had he not joined founder Mark Zuckerberg in Palo Alto in the summer of 2004, when the fledgling Facebook was just five months old, the service almost certainly would not be the colossus it is today."

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.
