Spammers in the slammer

A compilation of the most notorious convicted spammers

Spammer and family dead in apparent murder-suicide: Edward Davidson, 35, is the poster child for why spammers need to be prosecuted. In April 2008, Davidson pleaded guilty to tax evasion and falsifying e-mail headers on messages advertising penny stocks. He was sentenced to 21 months in a minimum security US prison camp in Colorado. A few days after his July 2008 escape from prison, Davidson was found shot dead in an SUV along with his wife and 3-year-old daughter. Spared were his 7-month-old son and a teenage daughter, who survived a gunshot wound to the neck.

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.
