In pictures: 10 dumbest things tech CEOs have said and done

As a rule, CEOs in the technology industry tend to be a pretty bright group. Their vision, passion and leadership have changed the world. BUT they also have moments that leave the rest of us wondering, "Are they really that dumb?"

Big Three Auto CEOs: I Told You We Should Have Flown Coach Okay, so these guys aren't really "tech" CEOs, although their companies' cars are pretty technical. But if we're talking about dumb, out-of-touch CEOs, we just have to put them on the list. In 2008, General Motors CEO Rick Wagoner, Chrysler CEO Bob Nardelli and Ford CEO Alan Mulally came to Washington D.C. with hat in hand. They had fallen on tough times and needed a $25 billion bailout from taxpayers. They promised to streamline their businesses. There was just one problem with their message. Clueless, each of them had flown private luxury jets to the meeting to ask the commoner for a handout.

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.

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.
