The e-lection

Technology issues got short shrift compared to budget, taxes and other hot button topics during the Presidential election, but that’s not to say tech didn’t play a big role in the results. Citizens of New Jersey, affected by Hurricane Sandy, were allowed to vote by email or fax, but technical issues stymied many of them. The process also renewed security concerns about email voting. Meanwhile, the Obama campaign blew away Mitt Romney’s camp on the social media front, measured by Facebook and Twitter followers, and the President’s campaign was also said to have tapped into social media analytics to gauge voter sentiment. Romney’s “Orca” project ran into serious glitches at key times and might have done the campaign more harm than good.

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.
