Bill thanx. Products can win if shipping or set to ship soon, a common approach in tech awards. Our judges seek products with innovative ideas/features; if gear isn’t shipping they weigh a vendor’s history. In this case, Ron Paley has a long industry record. Having said that, we’ve seen a few over the years go to products that ended up being seriously delayed so it’s not a perfect science.

how can Digital JukeBox Radio Spider-II be a cool stuff award this year when it doesnt even exist yet. Was Radio world duped into thinking that its a real product. It's vaporware. Coming Soon! May 30th 2013 (or sooner check with Sales)
