New super secret Amiga hardware??

Is this B-S or could it really be something interesting??

"Mystery Hardware for Classic Amiga - New super secret Amiga hardware is coming to the DiscreetFX iStore. DiscreetFX's CEO stated, "We have never sold this type of brand new hardware before but retro Amiga fans will be very pleased. Look for something exciting from us soon that will help you get more enjoyment out of your Amiga.
Coming June 30th, 2010!"

Maybe a coffin.
That's what the Amiga needs. A good old coffin.

The date doesn't ties up to the launch of MikeJ's RetroReplay FPGA board which is probably August.

NatAMI is years away from production if ever.

X1000 again is a long time away and is hardly for classics.

I wonder what it could be... possibly something from the PC world which to Amiga users is overpriced erm I mean priceless

Super secret: a joystick, available elsewhere, and SSD solutions available elsewhere?
