@AmigaHeretic

The companion energy drink is just TOO FUNNY!

http://www.evomc2.com/index.html

Quote:
The Umbrella Beverage Company is an extension of the Envizions Computer Entertainment Corp. Umbrella was created in early 2008. The first beverage to be released from this division will be EVO Smart Formula2. ESF2 is a energy beverage developed to increase energy and an indicator of the social status and intellect of our customers. In the future we plan to launch several other drinks ranging from energy drinks to bottled water. The Umbrella Beverage Company guarantees the best quality of products and services.

OK, It is late and I am tired and you have completely confused me.
Is this genuine? Are Amiga Inc flogging systems with energy drinks?

No. Amiga Inc aren't flogging anything. Some people here are so intent on being part of the Amiga Inc Haters' Club that they are totally ignoring that someone else entirely (aka Envizions) are flogging Linux-based subscription gaming systems with energy drinks.

It's like blaming Roxio for E-Machines computers (and I'd recommend an E-Machines over this thing)

In all honesty, I think it looks pretty damn cool actually, as unfashionable it is to praise anything Amiga Inc does these days!


uhhh, what part of developing this did Ainc do?

the only connection it seems is Ainc have done a deal to allow evo buyers to download Aincs crappy games...

And who says that this isn't another shell like compagny of Pentti Kouri? Maybe it's even McEwens family at work.

At least we've got some first names of the management and IT department (LOL!)

You can actually buy the EVO (although it's somewhat hidden on their site). I don't know what those price options are...

I don't think anyone is saying Amiga is releasing the machine. The thread clearly shows its a business partner (at least as of 2006) doing so. And its a specific platform at the time that Amiga was excited to be releasing software for.

The coupon redemptions available for the Evo do add to the funny factor, as well as odd choice of other business ventures (Evo with their energy drink and Amiga with the Kent Arena). Makes them seem like quite the fitting pair, which is humorous.

EDIT:
BTW Amiga has added an EVO logo to their shopping website:

Time to update your tagline. You can buy a Sam440ep with AmigaOS 4.1 right now.

Take a break from picking on Amiga Inc. and enjoy the AmigaOS 4.1 experience.

Why don't you take a break from posting off-topic?

I hate to pick on a guy I don't even know, but I think him and Bill McEwen will be perfect for each other.

interviewer: "What are the specs of the machine."

CEO: "Well, lets see there's a harddrive in there, what else, ah, oh yeah, we have a video card, and ah yeah a sound card too."

WOW!! A video card AND a sound card. OK thanks for not getting TOO technical on us there.
