News for June 9th 2010


It’s time for the news once again from our friends all over the world. Inside we’ve got the end of the Computex coverage I think, along with of course tons of other news. Tomorrow is the last day of the school year for my kids, so I’m in for along summer with them here with me, but for the most part they’ll just hang out and play video games most of the time so it shouldn’t be too bad.

IN-WIN AMMO USB Hard Drive Enclosure @ TechwareLabs

Quote: There are a lot of hard drive enclosures out there. No, really! Go punch "USB HDD enclosure" into Google or NewEgg some time, you’ll be buried in them.
