It's easy to award vaporware! No one can dispute it!

Yeah, award a product that has not even rolled out yet and may not even come out this year.

If I see the 921 displayed by E* at CES next month and it has not yet shipped I will launch a formal complaint to CES CEO requesting that rules change, making it a requirement that there be a separate category-
Best of show for only shipping new products. and best innovation for best working prototype (921 wouldn't even qualify here). No awards for best idea, non-working prototype, or concept or mock up model as I could win by showing a consumer time machine or a consumer device to turn water into gasoline... imagination gone wild!

The 921 has made a mockery of the CES awards process and I think they should demand a public apology from E* and request E* return the award!

Moxi is now in use by some Charter systems.

BTW did you know that the origional 721 code was the base code for MOXI?

Yes, I remember you saying back before the 721 came out that it was "probably" a MOXI because E* made some sort of deal with them at about that time.
