In Pictures: Tech 2013, 10 headlines from the future

Behold your high-tech future

Privacy goes public

The age of increased online monitoring will reach a tipping point in 2013. People will care dramatically less about the personal data they post online, and will stop worrying who reads it. Meanwhile, the U.S. National Security Agency's online data collection center in Utah will go live, harvesting data about Americans’ online activities on a massive scale.

Delighting in the Zuckerbergian era of oversharing, users will collectively shrug their shoulders and continue to publicly post every facet of their lives. Data harvesters will lick their chops, and use the info to create ever-more-accurate digital dossiers on everyone—and share them with advertisers and nosy NSA agents. Privacy groups will cry foul and try to warn us.

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.

Simon Harriott


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.
