CNET Top 5: Biggest tech fanboys

Culture
^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Welcome to CNET Top Five where each time we meet we count down another hot CNET list. I'm Tom Merritt. You know Tech debates can get pretty passionate. Seems like the Apple Microsoft debate has been going on forever. Lots of Tech companies have developed legions of loyal fans who love their chosen Tech Company right or wrong. We call them Fanboys; now there are Fangirls but they're much more reasonable. We're talking about the stinky, yelling, flame baiting Fanboys here and who are they? We'll find out as we count down the top five biggest tech Fanboys. At Number 5, dig.com Fanboys; tread carefully into the comment wars of dig.com my friends lest you break a digger's taboo and feel the wrath of the dig horde. Let's stick to a simple thumbs down if you're faint at heart. Coming in at Number 4, Xbox 360 fans and we're splitting them away from Microsoft, that's knocking Windows just out of the top spot; Xbox fans may not leave the house much but when they do make sure not to mention red rings around them; they kind of loose it when you do that. Up to Number 3, Lenox Fanboys. This free and open source operating system is ultimately the best solution for servers, desktops, embedded objects, cell phones, music players, household repair, cooking, day care and running absolute as monarchies. You think otherwise? Sliding into Number 2, Nintendo Fanboys. Breath brings the Nintendo fans up near the top; it's not just kids with their game boys anymore. The Wi has broadened the Nintendo fandom to the soccer moms and beyond. Be careful about criticizing Nintendo; their legions lurk in the senior homes and the nurseries and the rec centers; they are everywhere. Before we get to Number 1, let's look back on the top Fanboys of the 1980's. Aah those Vacs [assumed spelling] VMS'ers [assumed spelling] knew how to party, statistically speaking if you run a regression analysis. All right; let's get to our Number 1. The most dedicated, the most loyal, the most likely to deliver an inflamed defense at the nearest hint of any kind of derision towards their beloved company, at Number 1, it's Apple, and just making them Number 1 has filled my inbox with e-mail but it's not a bad thing okay? Apple lovers have raised the occupation of fandom to an art form. They love and cherish their group and defy all those who plot against them. They have the faith that cannot be disturbed. They're lucky to have Apple and Apple is lucky to have them. Go in peace my Apple friends; you set the standard. That's it for this edition of CNET Top Five. You can contribute your own thoughts on the matter at our blog. I hesitate to give you the address--blog.cnettv.com. I'm Tom Merritt; see you next time. ^M00:02:59 [ Music ] ^M00:03:03

Our custom-built air purifier test chamber sits in the dark, the interior illuminated behind plexi-glass by white string lights. It's a sealed, closet-sized room that we fill with smoke to test each unit.
