Given the truly insane legal issues and bad blood that surround Amiga and Hyperion etc, if the worst dig the mainstream tech press have is at the projected cost of the X1000, you're having a good day.

What a numptie this Drew Cullen guy must be, describing the Amiga platform as moribund... :madashell:

He's obviously one of those losers who scours the net looking for any little snippets of information that he can comment on without even bothering to check all the facts... :rolleyes:

While Amiga Inc and all the rest of those companies still spend most of their time lurking about in the grey shadows of the Amiga IP & copyright issues and never actually doing anything productive, don't both they and this guy realise that, whether it be in classic hardware form, emulation, or a hybrid system the Amiga community lives on and is far from being moribund...

At the end of the day no matter who owns the Amiga brand name, all that matters is the Amiga community knows something genuinely Amiga when they see it. :)

I've sent an email to the company carrying out the transaction, asking for a quote and some more details, watch this space for a reply ... :roflmao:

I've already purchased AmigaUK.com, but because I decided to change servers the name is tied up for 60 days before I can access it... :(

But to own the actual AMIGA name, now that would be something, reckon I could have a great laugh with that... :)

(oops... made a boo boo it's AmigaUK.com I purchased not AmigaScotland.com, wondered why I couldn't find it !!!)

Time for a "Free the Amiga" telethon to get Amiga Inc out of the picture, methinks.

Or perhaps not. Given the questionable status of Amiga Inc's ownership of the trademarks, taking possession of the name could amount to receiving stolen property.

Pouring good money down a rat hole to get a domain name is a really bad idea.  The Amiga community is small, a few thousand, most of whom read one of three or four websites.  Hyperion could use the domain name kfjslfdjdkfjldfogd.asia and people would still find it.
