Apple and the Engadget Awards

This time last year, I wrote about the Engadget awards and said:

There are some interesting differences between the readers’ choice awards and Engadget’s own picks, which suggests the power of the online Mac community – typically if Apple makes something in any of the categories, the readers overwhelmingly voted for it while Engadget tended to go for non-Apple kit

A year on, and Engadget’s giving out gongs again. I’m getting deja vu:
