In Pictures: Hard time, 10 Tech CEOs sent to the slammer

A sampling of famous and not-so-famous tech execs who ran afoul of the law

Jeff Hawn, Attachmate

When 32 bison, some of them pregnant, wandered onto Jeff Hawn’s Colorado ranch in 2008, he took action by hiring hunters to kill the intruders. Actually, the then-CEO of Attachmate gave the hunters the option to remove them live if they wanted to, but they chose to hunt, and apparently weren’t very good shots. Some of the carcasses had eight bullets in them when they were left to rot on the range. "What I find really disturbing is that these animals definitely suffered," the judge said at Hawn’s sentencing, according to a report in the Denver Post. The judge sentenced him to 10 days in Colorado’s Park County Jail.

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.

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.
