Reporters' Roundtable: Debating the CNET 100

Fanboy fist-fight! CNET Reviews editors Lindsey Turrentine and John Falcone join Rafe in a debate over the best, worst, and most important tech products of 2011.

Ok, kids, it's the last Roundtable of the year, so let's wrap things up by talking about CNET Reviews' big year-end extravaganza, the CNET 100.

It's a great feature with 10 great lists, like "10 disappointments," and "10 forgettables," among the usual stuff like, "The winners," and "The beautiful ones."

The big question: Why, oh why, is Apple represented so heavily in all the lists, including the bad ones?

Our roundtablers today are CNET Reviews' new editor-in-chief Lindsey Turrentine, and CNET Reviews executive editor John Falcone.
