- ClearPC Secret Agent Acrylic Briefcase

Around 2 months back now, ClearPC had a press release doing the rounds on the newest addition to their snazzy acrylic PC case line, the Secret Agent Briefcase. With a very unique physical appearance, this case is well and truely one of a kind. Explosive Labs got their hands on it recently and have a lot of good things to say.


The case we're reviewing here today may grab your attention because it is very unique. Not only is this a clear case it is also essentially a briefcase. Really it is a little larger than your average briefcase but nevertheless this case is apparently the smallest Full-ATX case available on the market right now. We are excited about checking out this one of a kind case so without further ado let's get to it.


- AMD Free WiFi Hotspots

AMDZone sent word to us earlier today of their discovery with "AMD Hot Spots". Effectively a free-zone area for wireless net access, apparently there are thousands of them all over the world. More details here including a directory listing of hotspots.


An AMD Hotspot is a location that provides you FREE wireless access. From airport lounges, restaurants, sports bars to coffee shops, AMD knows you're looking for internet access, but we also know you want that access for FREE.


There are thousands of Hotspots all over the world and more are being added every day. How will you know when a location is FREE or when it will cost you money to access the internet - just look for the AMD Hotspot sign! In addition, AMD is sponsoring a sign-up and directory service to help you in your city.
