Spammers in the slammer

A compilation of the most notorious convicted spammers

Virginia spammer gets nine year prison term overturned: Convicted spammer Jeremy Jaynes, 34, nabbed a "Get Out of Jail Free Card" in September, when a US high court ruled that the anti-spam law violated the First Amendment right to free speech. Jaynes was one of the first spammers to wind up behind bars. He was sentenced to nine years in prison in 2005 for sending unsolicited e-mail to tens of thousands of AOL subscribers. Jaynes made US$24 million from his spamming operation, according to prosecutors who have vowed to appeal the latest ruling to the US Supreme Court.

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.
