Their deal was : Developer gets 12% and Amiga.com receives 78%!!

12% eh from the old Amiga app store? Goodness gracious, how generous! (That really is so far out of touch it's not funny)

It's no wonder Apple's App Store has taken off and is inviting imitators left, right and centre.

Level playing field? Again, please see the Apple model. They give away the xcode dev suite, and charge $99 if you want to deploy to real iphones and distribute through the app store. Fields don't really come much more level than that.

@AlexH: why do you think this isn't real. It's even got the processor (Intel/AMD) defined!

I can't believe that this thread is still open. Seen spam bots with more senseful threads, and they were closed after a few minutes. Very odd.

Well, I guess he couldn't spell 'aardvark', so he went for the other end of the phone book......

It was only a ballpark figure, probably 222 would be more realistic.

Remember that the developer receives 80% from every sale in Amiga's App/Game/Hardware/Software Store, the 20% to amiga.com would offset the cost of creating the Amiga Set Top Box.

Just think how big Apple's IPhone is, and times it by billions.

All of the technology needed for this set top box, is already available.

I've probably got my rose-tinted spectacles on(ala John Lennon, Harry Potter, Hermoine Granger).

It looks like amiga.com is trying to destroy the amiga(Blue Meanies).

I think you should contact Retrogeek Computers for a joint operation to build the ULTIMATE MILITARY SPEC SET TOP AMIGA 2000 BOX.

I agree, the set top box idea sucks.

Maybe an Amiga Laptop/Netbook would be more realistic.

Indeed. I think it's worth locking for general daftness. Or moving to OT-Stupidity (although no doubt the denizens of OTS would be offended at such a suggestion)
