Although Barry seems to make it sound like it's Disney's idea the fact remains that even if Barry offered to kiss every part of Mickey Mouse's body to get this link it's still a good one.  Nobody will remember that it was a tie in with the movie, it will play in people's heads, Disney endorses Commodore.  It is a well played tactical move.  

Linking Commodore with Disney in anyway makes Commodore look legit.  Face it, Moochie has come a long way from slap C= logo on the site and see who hollers.  There's a reason they signed with a professional marketing company.  Now we begin to see it.

My guess is the next shoe to drop will be a deal with Walmart in the USA.  Remember it's not so much how good your product is as how well you sell it.

I guess this should be enough of a proof for those still thinking it's April 1st? :)

Ya know... I really am not one to be negative, I usually just let this stuff go, but I really am finding it hard to care about an announcement that doesn't affect me or my interests in any way. Good for C=USA and Disney, but for me it means nothing. Meh...

OK, so Sylvania are making the lights for the power button, ESET have promised to help Barry hack websites to steal images, Spin Master are going to help make up more C-USA lies, Crest and Oral B are going to help cover up the smell of BS whenever there is a C-USA announcement of an actual product, MDG Computers are taking the opportunity to look like pros next to the amatures and Cola Zero are the boys from da hood who supply the cocaine being snorted by C-USA employees.  :D

Nah, Coca-Cola is advising them on how to take a beloved product and ruin it trying to cater to an impossibly broad market. I wonder if they'll cover the subsequent "hasty backtracking and ass-covering" part?

One more question, and a serious one:

Who the hell are "Spin Master", "MDG" (I had to look them up to make my previous comment and I first thought they were the UN's Millennium Development Goals) and "ESET"?

It's proof that Disney will partner with anyone.

MDG is the worst computer company in Canada.

Looking at the menu, am I correct in assuming that you only get to see this ad if you're one of the 0.000001% of people who accidently click on the obscure "Partners" tab because you've mistaken it for something that might hold some "extras" of interest, say nude pictures of Oliva Wilde?

Yes, you are correct...

However, if you buy a Tron Legacy disc you will receive, in the box



this printed add.


This is just the beginning. There are more marketing and technology deals to come :)

I still don't get the direction of the company, or the reasoning behind the product line, but I hope that someone doesn't lose a small fortune here because there could have been other projects such has bringing the FPGA to market in mass for Xmas that could really generate some cash.

This is my feeling as well. Disregarding my other feelings for CUSA and their product, wasn't there any better use for their much-touted "$30 million advertising budget" than this? Printed inserts in the DVD case of a nerd movie doesn't say "massive awareness builder," it says "huh, that's interesting, into the trash it goes."

FPGA? Maybe one day, but for now it will remain a hobbyist market when it comes to C= and Amiga related products.
As to loosing a small fortune, if you wanna make it, you got to take risks.
