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.

Accel Partners’ $13 million investment In May 2005, the New York Times ran an article in its "small business" section about a young social site called Thefacebook.com that had gained 2.8 million registered users across 800 college campuses in about 16 months.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
