It's that time of year again; time for About: Macs readers to vote for their favorite Mac apps, peripherals, and resellers. Each year, we ask you to nominate your favorite Mac products, apps, and services, and then vote for a winner in each category.
Once the nomination phase of the Readers' Choice Awards 2013 closed, our team of crack editors ensured that each nominee was in the appropriate category. Next, we selected the top nominees in each category. We prefer to have three to five nominees in each category for the voting round. If there are more than five eligible nominees in a category, our editors make the decision on who gets cut.
Now that all the finalists have been selected, it's time to move on to the voting round, which will open on February 19, 2013 (2/19/2013), and remain open until March 19, 2013 (3/19/2013).
You can vote once every 24 hours in each category. For example, if you voted at 1 PM on February 19th, you would be able to vote again after 1 PM on February 20th.
Remember, it's winner-take-all in each category. There are no runner-up prizes, so vote early and vote often for your favorite nominees.
