While browsing around a bit on Intel’s blogs to find out if there were any new juicy bits of information I found an funny post by Daniel Snyder, Intel’s press sample guy. He provides a very brief peek into his press sample cabinet and shows a couple of interesting things. First up is a photo of the new fast Intel X-25M SSDs but there’s also a photo of an ancient relic: a 10MB PCMCIA¬†flash card next to some Intel bunny suit dolls. Snyder says that many years ago,¬†the 10MB solid state disk was one of the most popular items in his sample cabinet. I’m not exactly sure how old this card is but I estimate it’s around 15 years old.

Snyder also recalls that HardOCP reviewer Steve once told him his iguana ate his Pentium 4 Northwood 2.40B review sample, and he even had the X-rays to prove it!
