In pictures: Revenge is a dish best served electronically - 12 cautionary tales

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

Jason Cornish: Single point of attack Where did pharma company Shionogi go the most wrong in their dealings with former IT staffer Jason Cornish? Was it when they kept him on as a consultant even after he quit the company due to a dispute with management? Was it when they terminated his contracting gig but neglected to revoke his password? Was it when they failed to notice that he had installed a vSphere VMware management console that would allow him to conveniently control all of the company's virtual servers from one place? Working on free Wi-Fi provided at McDonald's, Cornish erased 88 servers and caused $800,000 worth of damage. He was also caught and pled guilty, serving 41 months in prison.

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.
