Cisco CEO Chambers’ pay climbs 33% to $18.9 million

Cisco CEO John Chambers received compensation valued at $18.9 million in fiscal 2010, according to documents filed Friday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. His total package is up 33% from 2009, when he received compensation valued at $14.2 million.

The company, meanwhile, grew revenue and profits by 11% and 27%, respectively, in its 2010 fiscal year, which ended July 31. Revenue came in at $40 billion, up from $36.1 billion in 2009. Net income hit $7.8 billion, up from $6.1 billion in the prior year.

The bulk of Chambers’ 2010 pay package came in the form of stock and option awards, which were valued at $13.9 million at the time they were granted (up 18% from $11.8 million in 2009).

Chambers received a cash bonus of $4.6 million, which is more than double the $2 million bonus he received a year earlier. His pay package also includes a $382,212 salary, which is nearly equivalent to the salary he received in 2009.

His other compensation and perquisites totaled $11,025, which is attributed to matching contributions that Cisco made under its 401(k) plan on behalf of Chambers.

Chambers’ total pay is calculated using data supplied in a preliminary proxy statement filed with the SEC on Sept. 10. The following figures are taken from the summary compensation table: salary, stock awards, option awards, non-equity incentive place compensation (bonus), and all other compensation. The estimated value of stock options represents the aggregate grant date fair value of option awards granted during the fiscal year.

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.

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.
