A few days ago, i had the pleasure to visit the Commodore Industries headquarters.
Needless to say, the visit was exciting, bringing back old memories of Commodore and Amiga.
The main headquarters are in Rome, and it's very nice. The headquarters consist of several buildings and offices, including laboratories for development.
There is also a canteen for employees and an 'old school' recreational space." There is an hotel too adjacent to the headquarters for visitors who wish to stay, but it is not part of the facility. Anyway, the headquarters is expanding.
The company consists of three main divisions: Commodore Engineering, Commodore Sinapsy and Commodore academy. I was warmly welcomed by everyone, from the receptionist and secretary to the CEO and the HR manager.
The atmosphere was exciting. The enthusiasm was palpable in the air. The Commodore logo was everywhere in the offices and labs, really nice. There is also an artist available to the company, who has created remarkable works.
The company has over a hundred employees and is continuously growing. Moreover the company holds numerous contracts with various important companies Along with some important partnerships.
The company produces, among other things, significant hardware. Commodore-branded laptops are, in my opinion, beautiful and cutting-edge, equipped with the latest technologies. The screens of the Orion and OmniaBook laptops are stunning. I've heard that independent benchmark tests have shown these laptops to be the fastest on the market for at least 4 months. But as you know, new models in this field emerge every day, and benchmarks are only valid for a short time. I know for sure that new models are already in development and will soon be launched on the market. "They also print a magazine titled 'Commodoriani' in Italian (Commodorians). The various issues of the magazine can be downloaded for free from the website.
Unfortunately, due to industrial secrecy, I couldn't enter the secret labs where some interesting hardware/software developments are taking place. There's a book that tells the whole story, and I've been told that thousands of copies have been sold: I received one as a gift! Many passionate visitors come almost every day to visit the headquarters. Again, there's a great enthusiasm here.

P.S.
A console is in development. Don't know the datails, but i will tell you soon...

@AmigaBlitter

Correct me if I’m wrong but your post seems light on Amiga specific news.

@AmigaBlitter

They legally have rights to the Commodore trademark? I’m curious what they’re doing that ties into the legacy of Commodore and not just trying to cash in on the brand with just another PC product.

@AmigaMac
From https://hackaday.com/2022/06/16/will-the-real-commodore-please-stand-up/

Commodore International B.V.: Owner of the original Commodore trademark and lazy IP squatter. http://www.commodorecorp.com/

Commodore Business Machines: Renegade trademark caper and brander of cheap tat.

Commodore Engineering: ditto

Cloanto / Amiga Corporation: Owner of Amiga trademark and all classic Commodore copyrights, including the classic ROMs

—–

Commodore International B.V. licensed the Commodore name to Commodore USA which produced the Commodore 64x in 2011, a x86 machine in a replica C64 shell. This new Kickstarter seemed to have acquired the assets from that Commodore USA, which I assume includes the Commodore trademark license form Commodore International B.V.

Commodore Engineering, the completely unrelated Italian company that hoodwinked the trademark office, is now acting as an IP Troll.

Friend AmigaBitter!

An idea comes to mind! Free of charge, here is a press release for your friends!

Introducing Commodore Insdustries, where we've mastered the art of profiting off the accomplishments of others because why work hard when you can piggyback on someone else's success?

At Commodore Insdustries, we've turned exploitation into an art form! From iconic ash trays to pioneering coffee mugs, we shamelessly milk their legacies for all they're worth. Whether it's slapping our logos on Linux based emulation boxes or cashing in on Unca Irving's legacy for corporate events, we leave no opportunity unexploited!

Forget about making your mark on the world; with Commodore Insdustries, you can just ride the coattails of those who already have. After all, why bother with originality when you can buy your way into relevance?!


BOOK A ROOM, I'LL APPLY FOR INTERNSHIP RIGHT THIS INSTANCE!!!!!!!!!!!! 111111111111111! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!! RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRRR

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


!!!!



Enroute to Rome on the Commodore Business Jet,

@DiscreetFX

The old Amiga connection, in case everyone either forgot or failed to read my postings from 2022:

Subject: A new Amiga&c64 game jam is coming (yes, them)

Quote:
The jam will focus mostly on Amiga because one additional goal is to find one IP worth to be developed further in a modern platform release


and

Quote:
We discussed the Amiga brand status, and for now we need to wait the (long) legal process between amiga and hyperion.


Later they inquired how to go about attending AmiWest, which I explained to them. In the end they had decided not to attend but to send a presentation and/or company information. This did not occur for numerous reasons.

Next they became embroiled with objecting to valid C= licensee "MyRetroComputer", which required an army of volunteers to untangle. etc.

Old Commodore also made PCs - this is a PC.
Old Commodore's plan for Amiga was PA-RISC and Windows NT - this is Windows NT.

If old Commodore had not folded, this is exactly what they would have been pushing out today.

I'm sure you mean the hardware is "assembled" in Germany.

Yeah, why not release yet another Android (or Windows) based console? The world needs it!
