Hi L8Knight,
> Amiga site says: you manage your systems with our powerful hardware/software M2M communications solution...
I have the impression the device has nothing to do with Amiga OS, yes?

Grand Blanc, imagen that! Detroit and Mt. Clemens area here...
You, me, Paul Zager and Ken Lester Jr. are the only Amigans existing in the whole state, I'm aware of. Not sure about Ken anymore?

Agreed, Amiga Inc. is only a name and has nothing to do with Amiga computers.

But it isn't an Amiga to 100% is a tablet with the boingball and Amiga logo, we think that these hardwares aren't Amiga as we think about the Sams, X1000, NatAmi and Minimig, are products that use the name because Amiga has a good name but for us, the Amiga users.

This site will not lower itself to advertising/announcing products by Amiga inc/CUSA.

Amigans.net stands 100% behind Hyperion Entertainment.

EDIT. Oh, what the heck, moving to too hot to handle, will, leave it unlocked for a while longer.

I don't support A.. inc since they don't seem to be really interested in Amiga except for putting the name on random hardware but..

..what else is the announced netbook if not a rebranded, existing product (running linux probably in this case).

So yeah, I believe there are enough reasons for us not to be interested in their products but don't force yourself to think up arguments that fire back at us =p

Well, you can't have it both ways.

If we go for custom hardware like the SAM or X1000 people complain that its too expensive. If we go for off the shelf ready made computing, it reduces the cost to a point where most people can afford it - but it upsets the purists.

To me the distinction is clear. Hyperion Entertainment are the legal owners to the AmigaOS. (Hopefully one day the Amiga name too - not saying they aren't already, but its all in the US courts again)

Therefore as the legitamate owners of AmigaOS - Hyperion can port it to what ever they want. Its their OS.

Lets face it, despite their low resources, they have tried to do right by us, the Amiga Community and the Amiga platform. For that alone, they get my 100% support.

I'm not even trying to want to have it both ways. The fact about custom hardware being too expensive (it's not that people complain it's too expensive - it simply is) is something I've brought up myself, both here and on the polish site (PPA). I'm happy that there will be AOS4 hardware for reasonable price - even though it could and should've been done long ago - I'm simply saying that we can't use that argument(rebranded hardware) against A inc when we're going in the same direction now.

Show must go on! :D

Okay - How about "Rebranded Hardware - that doesn't have anything in common with the Amiga Heritage - other than the name?"

Cool, I like cheap Chinese hardware, but I want it with AmigaOS4.x not Android. It probably has better specs than the upcoming Netbook, which I suspect is also just a rebranded Limebook.

It's such a shame that PPC is hardly ever used in "our" kind of consumer electronics. Consider the possibilities if we were using ARM today instead, just dreaming.

Sorry to say,

I think personally the tablet is simply only stickered since its using Android as its OS, however, thankfully, it is atleast using Android and not something #OOPS#.

Wonder if there Amiga Anywhere will ever turn out to be a customised OS, or if it will never happen.

And lastly, nothing to do with tablet now, but, IF I were to buy something from them, it'd only be a risk, and that risk would be an LCD TV amiga named, to match my REAL New Gen hardware from Acube / A-eon.

Cheers

And I wonder why you ask. There is more chance to see a PPC Zx81 than Aanywhere in this millenium

Amiga users would want Hyperion to own Amiga name.

that would be fine with me. of course i don't really care who owns the 'amiga' trademark and (if any still is remaining) associated IP, so long as they were a benevolent actor -- as opposed to mcewen who seems to think licensing the marks to television makers and arrogant floridians is an appropriate path to take.

Let's just wait a while. The value of Amiga trademark will keep falling due to Amiga Inc. licencing the name to tablet pcs, refrigerators, tvs, pressure cookers, dogie bags, toilet papers and eventually T-Shirts.

Then Hyperion can take it. And CUSA won't be able to take it because we don't want it. Isn't there a law for this? A law which prevents someone from buying some competing value and destroying it? (I mean buying a competing operating system (even if 10000 people use it, it's still a competing value) and destroying it and using Windows or some other OS)
