In Pictures: Golden Gobblers 2012 - Angry birdbrains of tech

Who are the top turkeys in tech? Cringely serves up a few deserving candidates. Please pass the gravy.

Charles Carreon

When this attorney accused The Oatmeal's Matt Inman of libeling alleged humor site Funny Junk after Funny Junk helped itself to thousands of Inman's cartoons, he had no idea he was about to take on the entire Internet. But not only did Carreon refuse to back down, he accused Inman of siccing Web vigilantes on him, filed suit against more mockers, and tried to block Inman's efforts to donate $210,000 to charity.

Inman eventually won, the charities got the money, and Carreon backed off, but only after he'd posted a video about Inman called Psycho Santa on his website. Hey, Chuck: Just because you're named Carreon doesn't mean you have to act like a vulture.

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.

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.
