Earlier this week Intel threw some great events aside from the Intel Developer Forum itself. On Tuesday night was the PCI Express 2.0 launch party, which was a phenomenal event. The PCI Express 2.0 party took place at Jillians across the street from the Moscone Center and featured a few gifts, casino gaming, raffles, and excellent food accompanied by great drinks all for free. It is certainly a great way to celebrate PCI Express 2.0! On both Tuesday and Wednesday evening, Intel had also hosted a reception during their IDF Technology Showcase, which consisted of free food, beer, and wine while browsing the different vendor booths.
Thursday marked the end of the Intel Developer Forum with
a drop in attendance for IDF on the last day, but we ended it with a
bang thanks to a mini Phoronix bash. During that, innovative ways for
opening beer bottles were demonstrated. Interested in finding out how
you can open a beer bottle (or most any glass bottle for that matter)
using a range of computer parts from a motherboard to RAM and even a USB
mouse? We documented these steps with plenty of pictures as well as
sharing which hardware doesn't convert into a bottle opener so easily.
Check it out at Phoronix.
