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. 5: Polaroid snaps Remember those grainy, over-saturated, sepia-toned snapshots you had to shake for a minute as they slowly developed before your eyes? If not, you're probably a fan of Instagram -- which is essentially the Polaroid snap reborn, only without the paper or the shaking. Now of course, every digital camera has some kind of Instagrammy filter built in. Even Polaroid itself recently introduced the z2300, a new instant camera/photo printer that -- yes -- mimics Instagram. Someone call a paramedic, we just overdosed on irony.

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
