I guess it was a matter of time before one of our Sponsors hit us up with a contest idea! After having reviewed over a dozen USB Keychain Drives, and with over a dozen more in the works, we present you with a ‘no-strings-attached’ give-away contest for fifteen of them – yes, that 15, and not dinky ones like 8 and 16 Meggers either. Ten of them are 32MB and five are 64MB – nearly $1000 in USB Flash Drives to give-away. All you have to do is fill out a form and answer one skill-testing question. The contest is open to all residents of planet Earth.
