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

Joe Nacchio, Qwest

Insider trading was what tripped up Qwest CEO Joe Nacchio who was found guilty of using information he gleaned from his position in order to sell $52 million in stocks at an advantageous price. He told Wall Street that the telecom provider would meet its revenue goals, based in part on his belief the company was in line to land some hefty federal contracts. In 2007, he started serving a 70-month federal jail term in Pennsylvania. He fought for and won a retrial, was reconvicted and once he was in jail, sued his lawyer for allegedly over charging him for his defense. He says the bill was more than $25 million.

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.
