Each of the winners received gift packages and the grand prize winner received an all expenses paid trip for two. Meanwhile, RouteBuddy has announced that it will be adding several new maps to its store that expand its coverage of South America and Asia.
Electronista has recently reviewed the Corsair Flash Voyage Mini and found that its small enclosure makes it easy to carry around, but also makes it easier to lose. Business people and frequent travelers will likely find the devices small enclosure convenient and the 4 GB of storage more than enough. Although 4 GB isn't enough room to transport entire music collections it should be more than enough for moving image heavy slide show presentations and other documents. In general file transfers were fluent and quick but on occasion would stall when transferring multiple large files.
