Comment It is just bought ad space (Score 1) 28

Usually places in these "Top ten", "Best in show" etc. are bought with ads (sometimes with real money), just like in score of 95% in Computer Games Magazines, and the page of "Cool expensive tech stuff you need right now" in the in flight magazine. Until there is a way to verify the legitimacy of these lists, I will treat them as ads (i.e ignore them)
