@all

The contents of this and "link" were reported coming from an audio file from
Bill McEwen played at Pianeta Amiga.
It is genuine by all accounts.

They need to fix the old site so it redirects to the new one.

And... no news in two years?!

I seem to remember they were to do a IMAP email client for AmigaDE stuff. Which I see they did eventually release for Pocket PC in 2003, dunno whether it eventually used any AmigaDE/Anywhere technology tho.

I sometimes wonder: am i the only one who doesn't care what Amiga Inc does? Why should this be any more interesting than all previous announcements they made (which, as a matter of fact, have all led to nothing).

How long does Amiga Inc exist? In that time, the only thing they ever managed was to rip 1000 people off for $50 each. They haven't produced one single line of code since they have existed (their Amiganowhere was just rebadged Tao stuff and the games in their "huge online shop of games that only run on one platform" are coded by 3rd party).

The only thing Amiga Inc has succeeded this far is being complete $%£'s for obtaining a OS4 licence. In their position, the only decent thing they could and should do, is give anybody a free licence.

Please, Amiga Inc, can't you just dissapear? You are, at best, a disgrace for the name Amiga, which once stood for the best home computer on earth.

... me is sick of the whole Amiga thing. I'm out of here...

Simple communications error. It's taking hours sometimes to get a response from
people between Italy and here. Some people are travelling. Some are just plain
busy. It took a loooong time just to discover and confirm this "news" piece
and its mode of intended delivery.
Hope you can see to forgive any confusion that arose from this.
