In Pictures: Gobble, gobble: Top IT Turkeys of 2012

Find out which companies and people earned the uncoveted 'Turkey' prize

What's in a name?

It's too early to call Windows 8 a turkey; perhaps we can make that determination next year based on how well the first significant revamp of the Windows OS in more than a decade goes. But Windows 8 did come with somewhat of a blunder for Microsoft. When first announcing Windows 8 the company called apps running on the platform "Metro" apps. Then, for some reason, Microsoft changed its mind. "Metro" was no longer the term of choice, but instead "Modern app" and "Windows 8-style" app were considered until Microsoft decided "Windows Store Apps" would be the official name. Is it that hard to make up your mind about the apps on your new platform?

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

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.
