Favorite Top 5 videos

Culture
[MUSIC] In the three years I've been hosting CNet Top Five some of the most popular episodes have been the most boring to write. There's really not much you can do to jazz up a list of Android phones. Likewise my favorite episodes personally rarely got the love they deserved so. As I say goodbye to my time here at CNet, I'm leaving with my personal list of my top five top five. Starting off at number five, top five signs tech has made you dumb. How ironic that the widespread use of smart phones has seemingly lowered our collective intelligence. Take the thing away, and I spell. I can't find my way around, and I can't remember anyone's phone number. And you just wait until we have smarthomes and real smartcars. Our children will be idiots, which is probably what our parents said about us. At number four, the top five sci-fi inventions you really don't want. [MUSIC] clumsy title's sunk this one but I still stand by the concept. Can you imagine what the world would be like if any moron could just buy a working light sabre at Wal Mart. A blood bath. I also liked this video cause I got to call the Star Trek holodeck in interactive [UNKNOWN]. So someone let my parents know that english degree wasn't for nothing. At number three, the top five worst things about Facebook. The irony of Smartphones making us stupid wasn't bad enough. Consider how much this one social network turned us into a bunch of voyeuristic self absorbed shut ins. My video felt less like a top five and more like a public service announcement, but it was cathartic and it did well on Facebook. Number two on my list of favorite top fives, top five phones with the highest radiation. Now this one sounds like it would be a PSA, but it was really just a solid platform for jokes about phones irradiating your junk. I'm not sure what the tolerable limit is for gonad jokes, but I'm pretty sure this video sets the bar. Let that be my legacy. Better yet, if I can leave you with just one top 5 video that really came from the deepest depths of the my nerd heart. At number 1, top 5 ways to watch Star Wars. Especially relevent this year now that we're building up to episode 7. I've got 5 different movie viewing order strategies for the original, trilogy and the prequels. So if you were starting your movie marathon with the god for saken episode 1, please take a minute to view this video. Quite possibly the pinnacle achievement of my 8 years here at CNET. And that's it. So there you go, my five most beloved top five. It's been a fun ride and I want to give a huge thanks to my producer Sarah Harvan, without whom this show just wouldn't have been funny at all. And a tip of the hat to Bryan Cooley and Tom Merritt, the master craftsman of shows about lists of five things. My friend Iyaz Akhtar will be taking over the show, so I leave you in good hands, and you can keep up with me on Twitter. I'm @donald, and, as always, thanks for watching.
