In Pictures: 11 fun facts about Apple

To celebrate Wednesday’s shareholder meeting, we’ve ventured deep into the jungle primeval of Apple’s proxy statements to bring you eleven bits of trivia about the company’s operations. Read on to discover just how gigantic Apple is, whose notable name is missing from the roster of the company’s officers, and the surprising truth about executive compensation.

Apple directors make a cool $300,000 …

That includes $50,000 in cash, and $250,000 worth of restricted stock (up from $200,000 in 2011).

As the chairman, Arthur Levinson makes an extra $200,000, while several other directors get additional compensation for their membership on the board’s several committees.

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.
