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 Google+ account: Raj Pudota, June 2011 Google+ had only been live for a few weeks when Brian White decided he wanted to know who owned the earliest Google+ profile. White was a Google employee on the Search side of the operation, but instead of just going to his colleagues on the Google+ team and asking, he did some mucking around in Google's sitemaps and robots.txt files and declared that the earliest profile (probably) belonged to one Raj Pudota. Pudota is mysterious: that profile is basically empty, containing only a link to a nonexistent Picasa account. There's also a Twitter account in that name that only has three tweets.

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.
