Welcome to CNET top 5, the perfect show for fans of counting things, I’m Tom Merritt. The history of technologies is riddled with bad attempts at naming things, Microsoft Bob, prophylactic, Chevy Nova, doesn’t go in Spanish, but which ones are the worst. I pulled friend, family and the internet to get ideas and have assembled what I think are the worst tech product names so far. Let’s cut them down. At number 5, playsforsure the name for Microsoft’s certification system. So you knew your music would play on that device carrying this label unless it was iTunes music or Ogg Vorbis or freaking Microsoft own zoon tracks. Know what it always plays for sure MP3. Coming in at number 4, Sony Vega, I mean Wega. Which is it? oh apparently its Vega. Because Sony says they named it after the star but the star is spelled v-e-g-a not w-e-g-a. Sony did buy a German firm that made Vega’s spelled with a “w” so why not just admit it or spell it with the “v” or just name it something else. Up to number 3, Flooz a famous dotcom era failure, it was meant to replace money. It is surprising it didn’t work out. I’ll find it dandy as far as it goes but why would I want my new virtual currency to be named after a nickname for prostitutes. Sliding it at number 2 the Nintendo Wii, remember when it was called the revolution, it was pretty awesome then but no Nintendo got smart and named it after a slang term for urine. But it’s not urine because it’s spelled with 2 I’s. still sounds like urine, something that makes urine. Before we get to number 1 time for another lame price, here’s the deal, be one of the first to answer the question correctly at the post for this top 5 at blog.cnettv.com and you can be chosen to win these pack of iapeel, portable skins for the second generation iPod touch. Here’s the question, “what was the name of the Linux computers sold at Wallmart that was sued by Microsoft for brand confusion with windows” Alright let’s get to our number 1. The worst tech product name by popular demand. At number 1, it’s the Apple iPod. If you paid any attention to Molly would add all since the announcement, you know that and many women think of this name and it was overwhelming like the name that came to mind when I ask folks for the stupidest product name they could think of and Apple should have known better than the riffed off IBM. That I mean, that’s the problem right? Thinkpad, that’s disgusting. Well that’s all for this edition of CNET top 5. Don’t forget to answer our trivia question at blog.cnettv.com for a chance to win iapeel. I’m Tom Merritt, see you next time.
