Also, it is of great interest to DiscreetFX to help get to market retro Amiga 500's in a joystick or maybe even a sub $100 AGA+ mini Amiga that uses flash drives to build the brand once again. Another idea is to have Amiga OS 4.0 running on cell phones, that market becomes more computer like every day and it is much larger than the PC market even when Apple, Linux and everyone else is thrown in. An Amiga Tivo type device is also something DiscreetFX would love to do.

Finally - a bit of sense.

Plan A (hire old hands) is sound.

Plan B (A500 in a stick, mini AGA, etc) is great - if you can get the licneses for sufficient games to make it attractive, and churn them out REAL cheap. They'll sell by the bucketload, and give you a cash cow to fund development of whatever it is you're planning to develop.

But mobile phones? Nokia, HP, etc, will crucify you.
