The 2007 AMD Tech Tour Train Stops in Vancouver

 The AMD Tech Tour Train Stops in Vancouver

This past Tuesday, The 2007 AMD Tech Tour made a stop in Vancouver. Last year when I was at COMPUTEX, the train rolled in at the wrong time of the year so I couldn’t make it to last years event so I was eager to attend again.  The year before, I made out with two Western Digital Raptor Hard Drives so I was hoping to repeat my past performance.

This year’s event was quite a bit smaller than the last year I went.  The session for retailers earlier in the day only attracted 40 people. This had our friend Andy, above, host of the AMD Tech Tour for god who knows how long asking, “What’s the Deal?” Even though the size of the venue was nearly a third the size of previous years events, there was still quite a bit of room left. Normally, the event would be packed, but the weak AMD Hardware bundle that everyone always looks forward to really took the incentive out of being there and staying for the long haul.

The Trade Show portion of the show was manned by about a dozen or so manufacturers and suppliers.  Some didn’t even show up, like Visiontek.

John Chow was up to his evil ways again, commandeering the empty Visiontek Booth and stealing their T-Shirts.  He gave a few out to hungry schwag mongers too, but kept the rest for himself. Not to be outdone, Paul got into a fight for free T-shirts with a deaf guy. Evil spreads. Michael Kwan seemed unaffected by this behaviour, but we found out that he lacked the ability to perform the Asian Squat when dinner seating was at a premium.  What’s wrong with you Michael? 😆

Although I didn’t win any Western Digital Hard Drives this year, I did get a whole bunch of T-Shirts a cool Gigabyte mousepad, and a KingMax 512MB ReadyBoost Flash Drive. I even won an MSI Motherboard. Not too shabby.

Since I get free stuff all the time, it’s time to give some out.  Instead of starting with the cheap ass T-Shirts, I’m going to give away something useful.  How about I start with the Kingmax 512MB ReadyBoost Flash Drive? The Kingmax Flash Drive is one of the smallest drives I’ve ever seen and plugs into a regular USB slot, leaving a very small footprint. If you want the drive, just comment with a creative reason why I should give it to you. Make me laugh.  Simple enough? Now go win it!
