In Pictures: The earliest days of your favourite social networks

Wondering who sent the first Tweet or posted the first pet photo to Instagram? The answers may surprise you (and are definitely cute, when it comes to pets)

First Flickr image: "Test Image," December 2003 The very first photo uploaded to Flickr was a test image that was appropriately just the words "Test Image," put up on the site by Cal Henderson, then the company's chief software architect. (Henderson is color blind and has worked on making the Web more accessible to color blind folk, which may explain the odd green-on-grey color scheme.) The first "real" photo, uploaded later the same day, was this adorable picture of Flickr founder Caterina Fake's dog.

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.
