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.

Internet Sensations: Ah, Fleeting Fame
The Internet has transformed the world — connecting cultures, streamlining commerce, and revolutionizing communication. Oh yeah, and turning dudes bawling about Britney into international celebrities. Not unlike a mosquito-infested swamp, the Web has been a rich breeding ground of viral phenomena. But no sooner do they become worldwide stars than these cicada-lived celebs cease to exist. Or so it might seem.
I tracked down some of the Internet's biggest overnight/one-night sensations to see what they've been up to since their 15 minutes on the Warhol clock expired. Some have settled into lives of quiet anonymity; others are now making grand livings off their Net-based notoriety.
But enough talk — ninjas, dancers, and a Turkish guy who just wants a kiss await. Start clicking and get caught up.

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.
