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

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.
