How many Twitter users are there?

Since its launch in 2006, Twitter has altered the way millions of Internet users communicate with each other by introducing 140-character microblogs called tweets. Twitter has become a favored channel for celebrities to communicate directly with their followers, sports fans to gloat over the latest scores, and disaffected citizens to coordinate protests. When Beyonce announced her pregnancy at the Video Music Awards in 2011, she prompted a record-breaking 8,868 tweets per second! The number of online adults who use Twitter on a typical day has quadrupled over the past 18 months, from 2% to 8%, according to a Pew Study released in May 2012.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

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.
