Final call for Reg Hardware Reader Awards 2010
Vote now - and see if you'll win an Xbox
Back in November we asked you to make your suggestions for the products most worthy of a Reg Hardware Readers Award. We got hundreds of nominations from which we drew up shortlists of the most popular - and least popular in the case of the Rusty Dodo Award - gadgets released in 2010.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, it's your last chance to vote on which of these should win the gongs. Voting closes on Friday on 14 January and we will publish the results and the name of our prize draw winner on 21 January.
At the same time, we'll announce our Reg Hardware Editor's Choice Awards for the best Computer, Lifestyle, Photo, Mobile and Games products of 2010.
So head on over to the Reg Hardware Reader Awards 2010 site and make your voice heard.
We'll automatically enter you into our prize draw. Up for grabs: an Xbox 360 supplied by Xbox Live - and we'll chuck in a stack of the most recent top-name titles of 2010 too.
Voting is easy: just put a tick by the product you want to pick in a given category. Doddle.
To refresh your memory, the categories are:
- Home Product of the Year
- Work Product of the Year
- Commuter Product of the Year
- App of the Year
- PC Game of the Year
- Console Game of the Year
- Best Tech Retailer
- Best Service Provider
- Rusty Dodo Duff Product of the Year

Since when has the iPlayer been a hardware product?
Yeah, really stupid
I voted for the 'skip this vote' link below the vote button in protest at being forced to vote in categories where I didn't care or didn't like any of the options.
hate with some hate on the side
Wow dude, you really got up on the wrong side of the bed, they're two different approaches to two different markets, you just want to be angry at something/one.
let it go some like the PS3 some like the xbox, some like kinect some like move, depends on the game. the kinect isnt 'laggy' their are a lot less games for the kinect but that will come in time becaue it is a completely different style of controller. The move is like an advanced controller so backward compatibility is easy.
Shome mishtake, shurely?
*Best* service provider? Surely "worst", or even "least worst"?
For example I am relatively happy with Virgin, but there's no way I would vote for them as the best.
You lost the plot by lumping PS3 Move and Xbox Kinect into the same vote.
Kinect is a useless pile of junk thats laggy as hell, not very accurate and very limited in the games it can play, and therefore very deserving of the rusty dodo.
PS3 Move is the total opposite, very repsonsive, very accurate and works with a broad range of games, it's also much cheaper, and therefore worthy of a vulture award.
