AMD Sends Out Oakley Computer Bags for Microsoft Ferrari Laptops

Recently received a surprise shipment from AMD - it contained an Oakley Vertical Computer Bag and two USB hubs (4 ports each) with an ethernet cable.

There's a card inside this bag from AMD promoting Windows Vista and says "Happy Holidays, We'll see you at CES 2007". [so the shipment was meant to reach us even before CES but it possibly got delayed enroute]

We never gave our address to AMD but the shipping label had the same address style / number as the one with Microsoft - hence the obvious connection between the Ferrari laptops shipped by Microsoft and the Oakley bag from AMD. And there's even mention of Windows Vista inside the bag.

Unlike the standard briefcase-style laptop bags, the one from Oakley is pretty light and the laptop slides vertically inside the bag. There are just too many compartments for storing the laptop accessories but here's the most interesting part about the bag:
Travel documents fit in the convenient mesh pocket, and the shielded accessory pocket blocks Radio Frequency (RF) waves to help protect your Bluetooth enabled PDA or cellphone from unwanted access.
Hoping this bag doesn't reignite the controversy surrounding Microsoft Ferrari Laptops.

Another disclosure - Betsy Weber from TechSmith, developers of Camtasia Studio, sent us a copy of Flash 8 Video by Tom Green. Will soon share some essential techniques about Flash Video, On2 and FLV codecs here.
