Computex 2007 – Thanks For The Memory

Today is our last day at Computex Taipei. We will be flying home on Sunday night at 11:50PM and landing in Vancouver on Sunday night at 7:30PM. Yes, we will be landing at a time earlier than when we took off. Who said time travel was impossible?

Today, we will be doing some site seeing before heading to the airport later tonight. We had a great week at Computex Taipei and came away with a lot of fine memory. If you don’t believe me, check out these photos to see just how fine the memory were. It’s going to be fun getting all this free stuff through customs.




Unfortunately, all 474 USB drives in that bottle were empty shells. There was no memory in it.

      Wasn’t that the purpose of the trip? To get free stuff for us? John is such a kind person!

        and may I suggest that the competition for a free usb flash drive should go something like this. First person to make a comment on this thread gets a free flash usb drive. (non hollow one)

  25. John: sell them on and just give one or two to your readers. Don’t give all of them. give one is enough. Be evil 😈

  26. Santosh P says:

    john… everyone needs ram man.. why not pull a contest and give away 2000$ worth ram..

    and guy John is too evil.. he churns out money more than he would actually get from ebay..
    Smart thinker..

  27. John, you home yet? Hope you had a smooth trip back (no problems at the airport this time).

  28. Marc says:

    That middle picture reminds me of the last thing the lobster saw… John’s got that “I’m about to eat you” look in his eye here too.

  29. Hey John, so when are you going to start giving them free to your readers ?

    When is you next competitition

  30. I would like to know how did you bring them through Canadian customs? Did you have to pay? They were freaking out when i got only 25 DVD.
