In Pictures: Microsoft. Purges, personalities, ‘pursuing other opportunities’

At Microsoft periodic reshufflings of the players and the executive hierarchy are a way of life.

Charlie Kindel The opportunity to run a mysterious startup within Amazon.com lured Charlie Kindel away from Microsoft after 21 years during which he rose to become general manager of the Windows Phone Ecosystem. After he left in the fall of 2011 he created BizLogr, a software company that makes MileLogr, a service that turns calendar appointments into mileage reports suitable for submission to the IRS. The software gleans location data from the calendar entries, figures out how far individuals travel to get from appointment to appointment and totals them. These individuals can claim deductions on their tax returns for the business-related travel. Now he’s working as director of a secret customer-experience software project at Amazon.com.

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.
