Tie: Boston, Mass., and San Francisco, Calif.
You read that right: These havens for IT geeks and tech companies both offer insanely high real estate prices, suicide-inducing traffic and too many cocky and annoying IT people fighting over precious jobs. San Francisco claims the No. 1 spot for worst cities for identify theft, or "iJacking." For professional sports, the Bay Area has the longest current streak without a major sports championship. And Boston is too full of itself (what with the recent titles by the Red Sox, Patriots and Celtics).
