Barry Altman and Commodore USA
« on: September 02, 2010, 05:04:10 AM »
After a few vitriolic message from me and couple sent back, I've agreed to call Mr. Altman tomorrow to discuss his company at its business plans.
Many of you know me and opinions about this company and its plans from postings I've made in response to the messages posted about Commodore USA.

So, to say the least, this may be a somewhat contentious conversation. However, Barry's of the opinion that if I give him a fair hearing I'll be swayed by what he has to say.

So, now is your chance, folks. If there's anything you think I ought to ask, post it now.
I'll try to have a concise outline of what I want to cover when I talk to him.

I'll post a summary of our conversation tomorrow.

Sure, ask him how being a douche and threatening legal action on an opinion piece is good for his new startup?

Why did he feel it was acceptable to take a well known piece of art (the fantasy amiga rendering) remove the name of the artist as well as alter the actual work?

Further, does he realise that copy pasting inapplicable law makes him look like a 'tard?

I, for one, am curious to know if he has any direct dealings with anyone involved with AROS, or if it is just a, "hey, we're Amiga, see?!" stunt.  In reality, this COULD be a good thing, but it really has gotten off to a bad start.

:furious::madashell::bitch::confused::(:hammer::rtfm::flame::uzi::destroy::shocked::eek::crazy::anger::evil:

the two most worst firms of all time (commodore usa and amiga inc) are here to destroy the amiga even more. this is a joke, who can take firms with webpages like commodore usa serious? this is such a nightmare, im searching for words but hardly can find some... terrible. i want to wake up, 1 2 freddy comes for you - damnit!!

hyperion, aeon and acube should merge to one firm and kick amiga incs a*s :hammer:

i would also like to see the morphos team in this firm. all that together would be much more amiga than these moneyhungry beasts from commomiga usa (and dont forget, this way we would have ready products and not only stolen pictures and token down webpages!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

aaarrgghh

a) I think you are mistaken about the sizes of these companies
b) Amiga inc can't be killed. Amiga Inc's like the worst kind of cancer.. it will resurface, always

Clever idea though, instead of a Recycle Bin/Trash Can, the desktop can have a toilet icon deleted files go into.  Right click, "Flush Commode!"

I like the idea presented here.  But there should also be animated flies which circle the toilet if you let things sit a few days -- I have seen peoples' Recycle Bins with files from literally YEARS ago.  But that is a convo for another thread, I think.
