In Pictures: 15 things we hate about Java

Slow startup times, null pointers, security flaws -- Java's ongoing success leaves plenty to complain about

Unfathomable vastness The huge collection of official Java APIs and not-as-official open source packages from groups like Apache make Java a fertile environment for standing on the shoulders of giants.

It can take days to work through the various APIs to figure out which is really the best for what you're trying to do. And then the guy in the other cubicle always seems to know something better, a fact that will always be delivered with just the slightest amount of snark at the code review meeting.

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.
