hmmmmm.....

Does anybody else find it odd that the same site would list the Iomega Zip Drive as #23 in their 50 all time best list...and at the same time list it as #15 in their 25 all time worst list?

No site is more guilty of abusing and misusing "top N" lists than PC World.. And they've done so with some success.  I suspect soon PC World will change it's name to "ILL-INFORMED TOP 10 LIST" Magazine.
