Ohh boy, I'm impressed that Elbox keeps getting headlines for this same 'trick' again and again. If you want to buy anything from them and there is no free shipping you must be the most unlucky man on earth.

And I whould really like to know what USB Stack they supose the user should use for there overpriced USB card they call Spider.

I guess the free shipping must help though else why do it.

copy/psate this from AmigaOrg

"I would suggest to refrain from buying a Spider card as you cannot register Poseidon for it anymore and hence, the card is completely useless."

That word is from Posedion autor!

not good for spider user :(

A high-abridged answer:

(look at the bottom of the page, under the horizontal line)

An answer from several years ago:
http://web.archive.org/web/20030203054053/http://www.platon42.de/poseidon.html

Elbox's side of it:
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/Amiga-Mediator/message/14464

A long & convoluted thread, which may or may not spread some light on the matter:

With all of the insults they receive from the "Boo-Birds" on this site it is a wonder that they even try.

@Moxee, yours are the wisest words amongst these comments. This has been happening for a long time, Elbox place an announcement for some special offer, and automatically the thread following the announcement refers to the Shark. It has become very tiresome.

I believe something was missing from the upbringing of these sorts. Their ridicule of others speaks volumes.
