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.

Tay Zonday: "Chocolate Rain"
Make no mistake, our next crooner hits all his own notes. Tay Zonday first made a splash with his 2007 smash, "Chocolate Rain."
Zonday's surprisingly deep vocals and seemingly cryptic lyrics resonated with the world, transforming him from student into superstar.
For Zonday — born Adam Nyerere Bahner — "Chocolate Rain" opened plenty of doors. The baritone belter popped up on everything from CNN to "USA Today" and even found himself being imitated by real-world rock stars. Now 26, Zonday is working hard to show that he's no one-hit wonder. He has released more than a dozen Net-driven singles and has expanded his vocal prowess into the world of commercial voice-over work.
"The hardest thing about being an Internet celebrity is you don't get any vacation," he says. "There is no off-season."

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.
