Vancouver 2010: A Tour of the Technology Operations Center

More than 100,000 hours of testing has been completed to ensure the technology that makes the Olympics tick will run without a bobble. Here's an inside look at this gold metal setup

Games-time will require 15 different systems all working together to provide a seamless experience for 3,000 athletes, 25,000 volunteers and 10,000 accredited media. During the test event, Atos Origin, the Worldwide Information Technology Partner for the Olympic Games, tested all the components of the Core Games Management System, which is designed to manage the day-to-day operations; and the Information Diffusion System, which pushes out games results to users around the world.

LIFEBOOK UH574

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
