In Pictures: 25 years of the World Wide Web

Tech leaders reflect on the the Web and all the good and bad changes it's brought.

Jeffrey Jaffe, CEO of the World Wide Web Consortium Jeff Jaffe is chief executive officer of the World Wide Web Consortium, the Web’s main international standards organization.

The MIT-trained computer scientist, who works with W3C director and Web inventor Berners-Lee, said the Web has far exceeded anything he could have imagined.

“There are very few innovations that changed everything about people’s behavior,” Jaffe said. “But I also think it’s just a start.”

In a future that will continue to struggle with the benefits of a Web that knows about you and the concerns about the Web that might know too much about you, Jaffe also said the Web will continue to alter industries like publishing.

The publishing industry will be the Web and books will be interactive with links to online dictionaries and references.

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.
