In Pictures: Greatest comebacks in tech history

Knocked flat and left for dead -- these 10 technologies and companies turned around their fate with historic flair

Greatest tech comeback No. 9: MySpace MySpace went from social networking kingpin to punchline seemingly overnight. When News Corp. dumped it for $35 million in June 2011 -- less than six years after acquiring it for $580 million -- many of us assumed the trailer-trash teen/garage band ghetto would fade into oblivion. But the new Justin Timberlake-infused music-industry-oriented MySpace is actually kind of cool. The jury is still out whether New MySpace will survive the Facebook juggernaut any better than Old MySpace, but the fact the words “MySpace” and “cool” can co-exist in the same sentence is already kind of a miracle.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.
