In Pictures: 15 things we hate about Java

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

Open source confusion Is Java open source or not? Just which libraries are open source? Darned if I can be sure even after Google's long skirmish with Oracle. For the most part, Java programmers don't need to worry because the JREs and JDKs are freely available. But in the backs of our minds, there's always the scary feeling that some lawyer will jump out of nowhere and say, “Stop!” Somehow it feels like the legal status makes us all pawns in the battles between IBM, Oracle, and Google.

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.
