CNET Top 5: Worst Downloads of the spring (2010)

2:44 /

We're back with another round of the worst downloadable software available on the Net.

Welcome to CNET Top 5, home for wayward lists. I'm Tom Merritt. Spring is a time of renewal. For everyone that is except Seth Rosenblatt. The intrepid CNET reviewer is charged with digging into Download.com's vault every three months and dragging the worst examples of software into the light of day. And y'all seem to love it. So...let's count down the Top 5 worst downloads At No. 5, Who is on My Wifi. Also known as, "what my Wi-Fi router already does." Granted ,this one is free, so I guess for those of you too lazy to pull up your router in a browser Window, this could be good? Coming in at No. 4, U.R. Celeb. Yes. U.R. You know what makes you a Celeb? Having money to burn on a program to make fake magazine covers! Yep, high roller who can just waste $15 on a program that does what you can easily do in Microsoft Paint. Up to No. 3, MB Fashion Astrology. OK maybe you don't have the same problems Seth does with Astrology...or fashion. No matter what, you have to admit this is a pretty ugly program for something that's supposed to use sun signs to tell you how to look chic. Sliding in at No. 2, Internet Explorer toolbars. Seth has lumped a whole category together here, noting that Microsoft itself has put out a white paper confirming that toolbars have got to go. If you want browser stability. If not, have at 'em! Before we get to No. 1, let's cleanse the worst download palate with a look at some good downloads. These are the Top 5 most popular downloads on CNET's download.com right now. Awe, how restful for the eyes. All right. Let's get to our No. 1. The worst download of the spring according to the man who knows, CNET's Seth Rosenblatt. At No. 1, it's... ManJuice. Yes. I just said Man Juice. A seduction and dating simulation game with a textual RPG interface. Features include approaching girls, training pickup skills and travelign to different cities. Man Juice. Makes iPad sound positively prosaic. Well That's it for this edition of CNET Top 5. Don't forget to visit CNET's download.com for many many good downloads. There's more good than bad out there. but now you know what to avoid. I'm Tom Merritt. See you next time.
