Top 10 funniest Internet memes

Without such memes as Double Rainbow, Crasher Squirrel, and Star Wars Kid, the Internet just wouldn't be as much fun.

Rickrolling



Who'd have imagined that one of the biggest Internet memes would feature an '80s music video from a long-retired British pop singer? In 2007, Rick Astley's 1987 sugary hit single "Never Gonna Give You Up" became a Web phenom of the bait-and-switch variety. If you've been "rickrolled"--and who hasn't?--you know the drill: Click a seemingly relevant link on a particular subject and—wham!—you're treated to Astley's perky dance video instead. The prank peaked in late 2008 when Astley himself participated in a live rickroll during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. While rickrolling still happens today, it's less likely to tell a lie and hurt you.

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.
