editor’s letter

If you’ve been reading for a long time, you might notice that we have many more categories this year than before. That’s because the world of tech is changing – now sensors and wireless components are so small and cheap, pretty much everything is becoming smart and connected. And if the tech industry’s horizons are widening, then its most prestigious awards need to follow suit. The expanded category list is made to reflect the new world of smarter living in everything we do, and I hope you enjoy reading about all these fantastic award-winning (and strong runner-up) products.
