In Pictures: 10 critical security habits you should be doing (but aren't)

Staying safe these digital days takes more than antivirus. Here are 10 fundamental things you do to protect your PC and other devices.

Back up your data... twice Backing up your data may not seem like a security matter, but guarding your data against faulty hardware or a devastating virus that wipes out your hard drive is extremely important. For best results, don’t just back up to an external hard drive at home. You should also back up to an offsite location to protect against fire, burglary, or children carrying water.

Online backup is the easiest way to get offsite protection. The numerous services available include Backblaze, Carbonite, CrashPlan, iDrive, and Mozy. A disaster-proof backup scheme doesn't have to cost you a dime, though, if you're willing to do a wee bit more legwork.

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.

Andrew Mitsi


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.
