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.

The famous Winklevoss accusation Thefacebook.com wasn’t live for six days before Zuckerberg’s classmates Divya Narendra and Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss argued that Zuckerberg had stolen the idea from them after initially agreeing to build a Harvard-focused social site called HarvardConnection.com with them. Here is a September 2004 Crimson article about the charges.

The Winklevoss twins brought the accusations to the office of Larry Summers, Harvard’s president at the time, and were infamously dismissed. When asked at a 2011 event whether the scene portraying the meeting in the film The Social Network was accurate, Summers confirmed both his arrogant dismissal of the issue and his dislike (to say it nicely) of the Winklevoss twins.

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.
