Very interesting to watch the votes stream in.
@Scrtwlvl: There definitely seems to be some big name brand affinity with Apple and Sony currently leading 6 of the 10 categories. In the case of Apple at least, I think that's fair. It's really amazing how they've built up such dominant leads in the media player, laptop, and now mobile phone markets.
As for the popularity thing, it's kind of the nature of the democratic process. Look at what happens in politics.
Any products that you think we missed in the nomination?
