In Pictures: Lotus pioneers. Where are they now?

IBM kills Lotus name, but software, key players, live on

KAPOR

Kapor is a partner at Kapor Capital, "an investment fund based in Oakland, Calif., that invests in seed stage IT companies that aspire to generate economic value and positive social impact." He's a board member at Level Playing Field Institute, which promotes innovative approaches to fairness in higher education and workplaces by removing barriers to full participation. He's also the founder and trustee of the Mitchell Kapor Foundation, an organization that works to ensure fairness and equity, particularly for low-income communities of color.

His response to the demise of the Lotus name: "I think 30 years was a really excellent run, and all things must pass.”

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.
