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.

Curtis Brown, AOL chief technology officer When many people first began using the Web, they were using AOL.com.

The online pioneer was there when we were all just sticking our toes in the waters of the Web.

Curtis Brown, AOL's chief technology officer, said the Web was a critical advance that gave life to the company.

"In the early days, AOL helped people get online, which was a challenge given the technology's infancy,” he said. “Bandwidth constraints, too, didn't allow for rich experiences with content or applications. Fast forward to today where… navigating and leveraging the power of the Web is what's valuable for people and for advertisers. The Web's evolution has allowed AOL to build platforms that have transformed us into a successful digital media company.”

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

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.
