In Pictures: The worst Cloud outages of 2013 (so far)

From Amazon to Dropbox and Microsoft to Google, we've seen some nasty Cloud outages in the first half of the year. Which company failed the worst?

Google Drive Date: March 18-19, 2013

Duration: About 17 hours total

Failure: It all started on Monday, March 18, when many Google users faced slow load times or full-on timeouts while trying to access their Drive documents and files. That lasted for about three hours.

If only the troubles had stopped there. A day later, a second Google Drive outage kept some users from accessing the service for about two hours. Two days after that, the Schmidt really hit the fan when Drive went down for a whopping 12 hours.

Yikes. Where's Sergey's skydiving team when you need 'em?

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

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.
