In Pictures: 15 high-impact Apache projects

From Harmony to Hadoop, Apache has been a powerful contributor to the open source ecosystem


Donated by Adobe, Flex is an application framework that has leveraged Adobe’s Flash rich Internet plug-in technology. Developers can build applications for iOS, Android, and BlackBerry Tablet OS, as well as desktop and browser applications. Apache is working on extending Flex to support HTML5, says Alex Harui, vice president of Apache Flex. But any HTML5-related improvements might carry a different name.

“We want to run in as many places as we can,” Harui says, in explaining Apache’s HTML5 ambitions for Flex. The upcoming version 4.10 of Flex, however, is expected to offer just incremental improvements. Having Flex at Apache “allows the people in the community who have a real stake in the Flex technology to actually contribute to its development,” Harui notes.

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.

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.
