I'd say they(Tulip) hit a homerun on that, except that new company has some
groundbraking ideas up their sleeves...

IIReadC Tulip bought the brand name for ~10 Million but now they sold not only
the name but also the hardware which is/was developed by them since then,

Wasn't an MP3 player CBM-branded supposed to be released ?

Yeahronimo seems to have a lot to do with music/media...

But still: 24M Euros ! :)

They did release an MP3 player but it was just some relatively cheap crap sold under diffrent names.

I really cant see how the Commodore brand can be worth 24 mill. Euroes.

@Nicholas

I doubt Jeri could design that, guess most documentation on the chipsets are lost and they would also need to license the Amiga name (which Should cost them $millions:)

The only result google comes up with when searching for KMOS and yeahronimo points back to a thread here at amigaworld in 2003!!!

Conspiracy theorists, put your tin foil hats on, and click on this link here.

IMO the Commodore brandname is the greatest asset here. I also believe that "Amiga" is a valuable and most excellent brandname. IMO don't listen to what competitors may claim otherwise.

Also the IBM brandname was the most important aspect why a Chinese company bought IBM's PC unit in a 1.75 *billion* USD deal. (China has a much cheaper yet competent workforce and everyone can build PC clones)
