[VIDEO] Why Commodore Failed w/David Pleasance & Trevor Dickinson

I posted this video yesterday and it got a good response, so I figured some folks here would be interested. I recorded this at AmiParty 21 back in August for Tomasz “ALT” Marcinkowski from the Polish Amiga Portal and Museum of Computer History in Poland. He speaks with former Commodore UK Managing Director David John Pleasance and Trevor Dickinson of A-EON Technology about the fall of Commodore and David’s upcoming book “Commodore: The Inside Story” There is no holding back in this interview. Enjoy!

Probably easier for Commodore's golden boys to meet girls if they had a factory there even though they didn't sell anything in Asia.

Saw this yesterday, do you think it's safe to say Trevor had had a few before they started filming? lol... or is he normally that jolly!?

Ha ha! Well, we did this interview right after lunch. Needles to say we all had a couple with our meal, but believe it or not Trevor is pretty much always that jolly. He is a really amazing dude. After the interview the Polish guys gave us something called "Stalin's Tears" That is another story!
