When trolling, it's generally considered more effective to troll things people will actually defend.

My thoughts exactly.  It is like looking at my list of contacts on my smartphone and assuming they all work in the Petroleum Industry.  :)

It's showing a guy that is associated with Amiga with the name Bill McEwen at a recent Blackberry conference. Hey, maybe it *is* another Bill McEwen who just happens to like Amiga stuff, and maybe AInc. suddenly started selling Blackberry apps coincidentally. I mean, the real McBill would never misrepresent himself, right? Like claim to have the money to name a hockey stadium or something like that? It's a different picture so it MUST be a completely different guy!

Things were already pretty bad at RIM, I've a feeling they just took another turn for the worse...

When we see a new product called the "Commodore USA Amiga Blackberry 1000X" available for $5,999 (please allow 90 days shipping from Florida) then we'll know for sure.

You know, I am *EXTREMELY* disappointed in this thread. The title implies something *COMPLETELY* different. ;)
