In Pictures: The 12 biggest gaffes by high-tech execs

Tim Cook admires Macs running Windows. Mark Zuckerberg flop-sweats. Marissa Mayer fancies herself a graphic designer. The bigger the names, the bigger the embarrassment when things go awry.

Zuckerberg can’t stand the heat Mark Zuckerberg isn’t known for his stage presence. Or rather, he is known for it, but for all the wrong reasons. Case in point: His appearance at the 2010 D:All Things Digital conference. While onstage fielding questions about Facebook’s privacy practice, Zuck was seriously sweating it—figuratively and literally. He fumbled over questions and was sweating so profusely that Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg actually stopped the interview to ask him if he’d like to take off his hoodie.

“I never take off the hoodie,” Mark replied.

Moments later, he succumbed to the heat and took off the hoodie. Good call, Mark.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


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

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
