Edit: I’ve edited this post because I don’t want to send out the wrong message. It’s a cool gift from AMD and I appreciate their efforts and concern. I am keeping the bag because you can never have enough bags.
AMD really likes sending gifts this holiday season. Bloggers would agree. 😉 This is the box that I couldn’t get before I left for CES, I was only able to pick it up today. I had no idea what was coming. A processor-in-a-(very big) box?
Someone at the post office decided to use my box as the whiteboard.
A pool of white fluff, then this. Genetically modified foam peanuts?
*drums roll* A Vertical Computer Bag 2.0 by Oakley! The 2.0 phenomena has hit the hand-luggage world. It’s worth $90 actually, so the name is nothing to complain about. Apparently it is also shielded with tin-foil to prevent the Intel from stealing trade-secrets over Bluetooth.
I’ll see you there too! Oh wait, I already saw you there.
I looked everywhere for a free AMD Athlon 64 FX chip. But I was out of luck. Nothing. 🙁
Then there was this cool little gadget. A portable 4-port USB hub with a CAT5 ethernet extender, as well as someone’s business card. Maybe Loki is actually Chris in disguise?
Thanks AMD. 🙂 The journey continues. 😀

Thats Chris’s (no really) was sat at our table during the dinner and a show MS took us to and was also at the labs.
Should pay more attention!
Anyway, funky bag – have yet to receive one and in anticipation of not actually recieving one couldn’t find one retail in the UK either.
Damn sweet looking bag though.
Chris. Of course. I have a photographic memory. Was he handing out FX chips at dinner?
Nice bag lucky for some!
You showed the guys phone number to everyone???
It doesn’t come across too well when you complain about getting free stuff Long.
A free $5000 PC that “sucks” because it wasn’t a free top flight laptop.
A free $90 bag and mobile USB hub sent by ‘someone’ – ‘would have been more useful if they’d bothered to send it to me in time’ – is that all? where’s my free CPU upgrade?
Complaining that ‘nobody likes you’ because you exposed some of your fellow bloggers just to get a few more readers.
I’ve had enough of spoilt bloggers who think the world owns them a favor.
I don’t read this blog anymore.
@mrmckeb: I’ve edited the photo already 🙂
@Vince: Complain about getting free stuff?
I exposed bloggers to get more readers? Where did you pull that from?
The world owns me a few favors, but this isn’t one of them 😉
Thanks for reading a whole post on my blog since you’ve never read this blog before, but I already told you not to read this blog, remember? 🙂
Nice-looking bag, congrats!
if people dont like you getting free stuff why are they reading your blog? Probably because they are just jealous because you get free stuff
USB -> Ethernet scares me.
That bag looks nice! Yesterday I purchased a JAG bag… now I wish I had that.
how do u get one. did u simply have to attend ces? if so where do i apply? that oakly touch is nice.
@Statix: I don’t know. I guess Microsoft forwarded AMD a list of attendees to their Windows Vista RTM Labs, because I know not everyone who attended CES got one.
Do you plan to review this bag? If so, you better disclose that it was a gift! I don’t want to see another biased bag review.
Did you disclose said bag Steve?
Don’t make me chase you down and beat you with your own shoes.
I am going to give my bag away to children that will be getting the $100 laptop. If only they can pay the $87 to ship it to them…
Shame the bag isn’t worth $101, that would be amusing.
But only to me most likely.
Anyway, mine arrived.
Already broken the USB dongle.
