- Crucial's new USB flash drive

A press release in from Crucial just a few hrs ago lets us know of their new and improved Gizmo! USB Flash Drive. What was already a popular and convenient little device has just gotten better, transferring files up to 6 times faster than the original (utilizing USB 2.0 connectivity), and is also smaller in physical size. Full details within the attached PR here.


"The Crucial Gizmo! Hi-Speed USB flash drive is a powerful, portable, and versatile storage option perfect for today's mobile lifestyle," said Crucial Technology General Manager Fred Waddel. "Whether you need a Gizmo! drive to shuttle data between multiple computers, or to act as a mini hard drive to store important documents or images, it beats using small-capacity floppy disks or a one-time use CD."


- Unveils Website Enhancements

The folks at the highly popular consumer electronics shopping site "NewEgg" have given us the heads up today on their first move towards completing a new web improvement campaign involving more streamlined navigation, overall improved layout, and better implementation of search functions. Head on over to see how the site's coming along thus far.


"This is a very exciting time for Newegg," says Howard Tong, Vice President of Marketing and Business Operations. "The feeling in our offices right now is electric." The revamped more accurately reflects the company's approach to doing business. Customized modifications to make information more clear and products even easier to find were developed from keen industry insight and Newegg customer feedback.


Newegg's integrity and customer-centric attitude, along with its commitment to offering the hottest products and competitive prices, are even more striking when browsing through the redesigned online superstore. An enriched search engine, my account page and convenient centralized navigation allow visitors the opportunity to find exactly what they are looking for with just a few simple clicks of the mouse, making window shopping or finding answers a breeze. "This is just a small part and initial implementation of our overall website improvement strategy," said Stuart Wallock, Director of Marketing. "We hope to extend our reach to a new audience without compromising our core customer base, which is why we are creating a website that has something to offer every visitor."


Newegg's pledge to maintain low prices on every item in its vast product catalogue - more than 7,500 different IT and CE SKUs (and counting) - with secure buying and a new, more user-friendly interface is something customers can look forward to.
