IContain announces Amiga branded TVs, cell phones and computers When a certain Todd Kleperis contacted the Aminet team two days ago to "discuss your library of Amiga titles" and ask for "guidance as to how to work with the existing fan base", the initial reaction over over at Aminet was confusion.

What prevented Hyperion, Acube, A-eon to fully use the Amiga name or brand till now? I really can't get this point.

Because a price quoted to Hyperion would likely be somewhat higher than a price quoted to either C=USA or icontain?

It's about the word, not the trademark. In today's society when social skills have vanished into the wind, we have a need for a product we can call "friend".


Now there's a depressing thought...

Still, could be worse. And yes, I would imagine Amiga Inc would quote Hyperion license fees somewhere on the order of what they offered to sell out to DiscreetFX for.

This doesn't have any sense. Are real, accurate and, most important, precise LEGAL information about to who is the "REAL" proprietary of the Amiga brand and all of it's assets? Who retain all Amiga patents and logo etc???? Was the previous trial a fake or what?

Yes, but can you see why a company looking to monitor your current payment status with GPS might want to take the sting out of that Orwellian connotation, by making a pre-emptive strike attaching the word "friend" to the product?

@Zylesea @opi

No need to tell me so. I've been using MorphOS since the Mac mini release.

The Amiga name still gives me warm fuzzies but, at the end of the day, I just want a computer that looks and works like an Amiga. I'm certainly not religious about it.

I'd use AROS too if I could get it working for more than a few minutes without it crashing hard.

EDIT: I should clarify that I have nothing against AOS4. I'd like to pick up a SAM, but the price has been prohibitive to me so far.

From the design work I've seen on the A500x's case, the name "Amiga" is apart of the plastic case. This is of course subject to change until C=USA initiates "cutting steal" on the mold (or mould for the British spelling).

Oh, I know it's possible. I think I'm just having bad luck with hardware.

Not agents any the Amiga name being using in none combative way,

for example on TV's, Stories, DVD player and monitors.

But when the brand using on standard Intel and AMD PC's that does not run AmigaOS.

When there AmigaOS name in use by Hyperion and there are computers called AmigaOne being sold, this will just make confusion.

Be nice work together and we be all happy.

By the way Everyone, check this out:

http://www.hokmaph.net/apotheosis/

Notice some similarities? A fellow member from Amiganews.it posted it (his site), let's be frank here, what we have its just a template, and a few photoshopped stock pictures.

Usual BS IMO.

Name following is never smart.

Lucky that I'm a "source code follower", in addition to an "experience follower", "design follower", and "fun follower"

I actually doubt many follow Amiga purely for the name (the very idea may even be an invention of some trolls). Rather the name is a convenient label for those things they like about it & associate with it. Although some people would rather use a different label for similar things (partly for legal reasons & partly not).

It's this theme.

Wonder if they even paid for it, or just ripped the code from someone else who did pay for it. Wouldn't surprise me.

So, who's the business partner then?

I noticed that cgutjahr had updated the original article.
But the link goes to a removed post.
was this moved elsewhere

Anyone know what an Amiga – Sermo I costs. It's looks like a nice phone, pretty much as powerful as an iPad. I don't really want to do a trans-pacific rent to own, but I might buy one at the right price.

Forget the sermo, get an HTC evo 4g instead. It uses the same processor, has a lot of similarities with the sermo, but is better and isn't rent-to-own.
