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.

Dona Crawford, associate director for computation, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory The Web has played a critical role in climate change research, according to Dona Crawford, associate director for the Computation Directorate at Lawrence Livermore National Lab.

“Of course it’s always better to collaborate,” she said. “We were all on airplanes all the time trying to work together. Then usher in the Web. Now you can get the top experts in chemistry and physics to all be on one team.”

Lawrence Livermore has a program that brings together all the climate models from around the world and makes them available globally.

“It’s all the microclimates from around the world,” Crawford said. “How else will we understand what’s going on with the climate if we can’t look at it from a global scale? We couldn’t do that without the Web.”

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.
