These scorned IT staffers had their vengeance on their former employers -- but most got their comeuppance in the end

Omar Ramos-Lopez: Immobilizing customers, for real Most of the miscreants on this list would be what we'd call B2B hackers -- the havoc they wreaked mainly affected their former bosses and co-workers. But when Omar Ramos-Lopez was laid off by Texas Auto Center, he decided to go after the company's customers instead. Using a former co-worker's password, he was able to gain access to a system that could remotely immobilize cars and cause their horns to beep incessantly.

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.
