While I appreciate the sentiment, I don't think this is a good way to be judging this competition. It's probably the fault of the organisers, expecting you to look at every single one. They should have split the list between judges or at least had a shortlist. The reason I take issue with what you've said is that you risk missing the point. Someone might have conceived something ingenious but lacked the design skills to make them pop. This way, you seem to have been biased in favour of more attention-grabbing candidates, which is a shame.

Jeff, I urge you to read "The Checklist Manifesto" ( and see if that changes your stance. It's arguably the most important book I've read on the subject.

Does anyone have any experience of the Hawking Broadband Booster ( ) instead of using a custom firmware? I'm currently using an Airport Extreme and have no desire to replace it (although I would like to get the QOS benefits mentioned).
I'm genuinely amazed there's not a single comment here about how it isn't possible/practical to write code on a "post-pc" device. Bar a few specialised industries, how many people can really do all their work on an iPad?

I think as a gamer, surround sound is more important than fidelity. With that in mind, most built-in sound cards do not support dolby digital live. Hence I very recently invested in a Creative X-Fi 5.1 to use in conjunction with an Astro MixAmp and Turtle Beach HPX1 cans. Granted it's a bit convoluted, but it's awesome.
