Amiga Documents - What's your opinion?

Hi there,

interesting and very detailed pieces of information on the weird nature of Amiga Inc.

Amiga Documents - So the world may know

Is this a hoax? The truth is out there.

I think that all histories or comments about the amiga companies or something like that is a pure waste of time cause Amiga INC and all related Amiga names and companies are frauds
If you go to www.amiga.com you can see that there's no company,no products,no money to cover the host site..... there's no nothing

Here is the short version:

10. Commodore went bankrupt
20. A bunch of people threw Amiga back and forth like a Volleyball game where you score extra points for announcing vaporware
30 GOTO 20

That's another story. The document is rather covering the bizarre detail that a company with no product and approximately $100 on its bank accounts should worth about $67millions. (Not to mention sponsoring of a hockey arena for $10millions.) There are quite some titbits. All this leaves you even more puzzled than A INC already did.

That's an amazing read. I heard bits and pieces before but never put it all together. I thought AmigaInc (various) were just massively incompetent but in fact they were actually being very clever (running a money laundering pyramid scheme for 10 years).

Question is…..how did they get away with it for so long?

If it wasn’t for the GCC, they’d probably still be getting away with it now!
