So Tychonoff theorem states products of compact sets are compact in the product topology.
is this true for the box topology? counterexample?

A counterexample is [itex]\prod_{n\in \mathbb{N}}{[0,1]}[/itex]. Can you show why?

if S_n is the set with empty sets in each index except n where for index n you have [0,1], then {S_n} is an open cover with no finite subcover...i think
