Tech tattoos: The good, the bad, and the R U SRS?!

Would you tattoo the Apple Safari logo on your forearm? What about a USB symbol? Get ready to see some of the worst (and best) tech tattoos around.

The Blue Screen of Death. Really.

The infamous Blue Screen of Death tattoo has been making the rounds of the Internet for quite some time now, and it's either the best geeky tattoo ever or the worst geeky tattoo ever.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm always trying to avoid the BSoD. Having it permanently etched on my arm might, well, make that a little more difficult. But I'll give the owner of this arm credit: It's comprehensive, it's well done, and it must've taken a lot of Windows 98 crashes for him to grab all the text.

What's that? This slide show of tech-tattoo fiascos hasn't properly terrified you, and you're going to get the Twitter bird tattooed on your forehead if it's the last thing you do, gosh darn it?

Hey, I’m not going to stop you, but I will suggest that you follow these steps to ensure tattoo bliss:

1. Think.

2. Bring a picture, so your artist knows what they're working with.

3. Don't get a tattoo of your iPhone 3GS, because you know Apple will come out with a new version in, like, three days.

And, in the meantime, may I suggest that you try on something less permanent, such as a T-shirt?

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.

Simon Harriott


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.
