Ok guys, I will be doing a report on Commodore USA this week
« on: February 01, 2011, 10:47:48 PM »
I am local to Barry Altman and Commodore USA. I just got off the phone with Barry and he invited me over to see the progress that is being made with the company and on the products. Considering my initial reaction when I heard of this company and it's products was knee-jerk and sharply skeptical, it would only be fair to Barry to take his invitation to see the products, documentation and anything else he would like to show.

I plan on taking pictures where possible and asking questions. I will probably do a full report here on Amiga.org before the end of the week.

Stay tuned...

Make sure to press him to see prototypes, parts, or anything else that might show all he has is a website and one hastily assembled pc in a c64 shell.
 
If they don't even have prototypes of these amiga pc's already assembled, then its for sure a sham.
 
Ask to see workbench 5 also. If he can't show you anything then they haven't even started on it yet.
 
I just think they keep announcing and then cancelling products. There is a reason for that (they don't have any)

Huh, I'm still pretty sure this is a load of crap, but if he's confident enough to show what he's got to other people, color me intrigued...

Looking forward to another cusa thread.
Maybe the three cusa threads currently on the homepage will still be there and then everyone can post the same crap in each one! That will be 4X the fun!

Forget that. We need an office pool to guess the number of page views the report will receive.

Why are people paying this asshat any attention? Commodore & Amiga died in 1994 and anybody else claiming the name since then (with the exception of Escom) needs to be ignored into nonexistence.

Good luck, Red. I'll definitely be interested in what you learn.

I see a lot of "dreaming" with these guys, but what you learn could tells us how much of what they're saying is just salesmanship and how much is money-where-their-mouth-is.

Excellent. Thanks redrumloa!
I'm really excited to see what will come out ... in fact, I'm waiting since 1994, so a few more years does not kill me (the childrens of my childrens can also expect to have good news about COMMODORE/AMIGA/etc...).
But there must be good and really strong arguments to convince me.
