In Pictures: Facebook turns 10 - A look back at the milestones

A lot has happened since Mark Zuckerberg and his friends launched a website from their dorm room.

Facemash The history of Facebook can’t be told without a mention of Facemash.com, the controversial website Zuckerberg created in October 2003. After hacking the online repositories containing headshots of his Harvard undergrads who lived on campus, Zuckerberg uploaded the stolen images to Facemash, where users chose which of two randomly generated students paired with each other was more attractive. Zuckerberg also infamously blogged while building the site, admitting to being "a little intoxicated" at the time. Harvard shut the site down a few days later and charged Zuckerberg with breaching security, violating copyright, and violating privacy, with the potential for expulsion from the school. The charges were later dropped, however.

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.
