A decade of Internet superstars: where are they now?

Whatever happened to the Evolution of Dance guy or that kid who loved Britney Spears so much he cried for her under his sheet? We'll fill you in on what happened to them and other Web celebrities when their 15 minutes of fame ended.

Jay Maynard: "The Tron Guy"
Jay Maynard's costume made him a household name for a short time in 2004. Maynard, who proudly dressed up in a lit-up likeness of the character from Disney's 1982 movie "Tron," parlayed his inspired duds into talk-show appearances and even a "South Park" parody.
Today, the Tron Guy is holding tight to his memories. Maynard — who by day works as a computer consultant and project manager for the Hercules Project, a Windows-based emulator for IBM mainframes — still makes regular appearances in the Tron suit.
"It's really on its last legs and showing its age," he says. "The unitard is about worn out."
Not to worry, though: Maynard has several more waiting in the wings, ready to be painted and prepped for wear. And speaking of wings, Maynard also bought his own plane this summer and had it painted as — take a guess — the Tron costume. "I'm not going to try to drop it," he says. "It's part of who I am by now, and I enjoy doing it. I doubt it'll ever go away entirely."

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.
