CNET Top 5: Worst downloads of 2008 so far

Culture
[ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Welcome to CNET Top five, where each time we meet, we count down another hot CNET list, I'm Tom Merritt. >> 2008 has been a great year for downloads so for, with hits like digsby [assumed spelling] and Photoshop Express. But why concentrate on the good? WWW.download.com senior content manager Peter Butler [phonetic] has don [assumed spelling] his HAZMAT [assumed spelling] suit, and weighted in amongst the dregs of downloadable content. Let's count down the worst downloads of 2008, so far. At number fiver, Masher, say it like it a 1940's [inaudible] Masher. This carpal tunnel [inaudible] wonder counts the number of times you click your mouse in twenty seconds, and gives you an average click per second rate. Oh, I'm sorry were you waiting for what else it does? Cause there isn't anything. Coming in at number four, Scat, a fun card game for fans of German and human sized mice. It's a niche [assumed spelling] market. How do you play this game? The rules are in German, [inaudible]. Up to number three, date doctor for men. >> And I like it too. >> And women. It promises targeted dating strategies. It delivers a lot text and databases, and some advice you could pretty much get from any bartender. At least the retro interface gave us a laugh, ha, ha, ha. Sliding in at number two, Brit View, sadly, not a spy cam of England. No, no, it's photos of the apparently underexposed Britney Spears. 480K of them. That's 33 pictures. Couldn't exceeded that with a flicker search could I? Thirty-three, that's a Masonic number; I've said too much. Before we get to number one, let's check in on the back half of the worst downloads list. I don't know, Peter Butler, curser hider sounds pretty compelling. All right, let's get to our number one. The worst download of 2008, so far as determined by www.download.com, at number one it's MB Free psychic color test. Use your psychic abilities to select the color secretly chosen by the computer, start with five, work up to ten, and become an expert with twenty. Can you read the mind of? Wait, what mind? My laptop has a mind? You know, the best part is, when you exit the app, you get a lovely nag [assumed spelling] screen asking you to donate to the publisher. But if they're psychic, why do that ask, wouldn't they know? Well, that's it for this edition of CNET top five. You can find plenty of good downloads at CNET's download.com. But you can also find the ones I just talked about too. I'm Tom Merritt. >> See you next time. ^M00:02:38 [ Music ]
