The Telewest Shinys: Tech Digest Gadget of the Year Award


Oscars Smoschars, Baftas Waftas, yep it is that time of the year when we host the one award ceremony that truly counts – the Telewest Shinys. Due to be held on December 1st in a glittering venue in London’s fabulous West End – well that’s what the club owner told us to say anyway – the Shinys salute all that’s cool in gadgets, design, games and much more.

This year for the first time we are giving you dear reader the chance to vote for an award. As from tomorrow you tell us which you think is the coolest gadget of 2005 and we’ll pop your name down on a bit of paper and plonk it in a rather large hat. Come the day of the awards, December 1st, we’ll pull a couple of names out of the hat and they will be receiving some rather groovy prizes. Don’t vote until we say, but here are the runners and riders
