No DVI? That's a bit of an oversight.

Well, I haven't seen Japan either, but somehow I know that one exists :-)

It's just the whole package that I'm not buying. Unprofessional website, domain registered March 17th this year and expires next year, anonymous registration, cut-and-paste text from other websites, poorly photoshopped images, stolen images from other websites... I could go on, but in short this just smells like a troll/prank.

Of course. I'm a beaten dog as everyone else here, but I the only one I don't trust is Amiga Inc, obviously. I have faith in Hyperion, A-Eon, and others that at least pretend to be professional.

The Commodore USA owner is Barry Altman. For some reason his bio has been removed from the menu, probably due to clutter, but here is the page anyway. http://www.commodoreusa.net/profile.html
You see, since I think this is fake (or at least something very unserious) I don't take anything on the website for granted. Everything could be made up.

He told me the kind of ad campaign he had planned. If it is a 30 second ad that I think it will be, the first 5 seconds, you'll think you've seen it before, the next 10 seconds you'll get a slight surprise but still think you'll know where it is headed because you'll have seen something like it before. The last 15 seconds you'll be WTF....how did they do that? If it is what he told me, they'll be talking about this in advertising circles for years. It's either going to be cringe-worthy or shocking depending on how it is done, but definitely will get people's attention that Commodore is back.
He-he, well, it's my thoughts against yours, so I'll keep my pessimism to myself and believe it when I see it.

They're not stuck with some ugly PC company's name or badge on them either, just that Intel Atom sticker which you can peel off.

Cammy, is that Hal Jordan on your wall?


@ Skurk,

Actually, as of 2008, Japan has become entirely virtual. It exists, but only in the virtual world. The real Japan is actually the 52nd state of America, right after the 51st State, the United Kingdom.

Where does Puerto Rico fit in all of this? I thought it was the 51st state?

And we all know the Estados Unidos is really just a colony of England anyway lol

@Hell Labs: Most of us Americans don't get the concept of a U.K.: Wales, Scotland, England, Ireland - et al. They're just a couple of islands "over there". lol

It's like when I moved to WI from IL. I'd tell people where I was from (Libertyville) and they couldn't perceive where I was talking about. But if you tell them Chicago... OH, OKAY! lol

Oh, I've noticed.
"Player has joined from country United Kingdom" *eye twitch*

".co.uk" *throbbing vain in forehead*

Union Flag with the word "England" on it *Angry German kid like moment*

I seriously want Complete and total de-unification, just so people don't mix it up - No other reason at all. On the other hand, watching an American tourist giggle and go "oh your funny english accents" in a pub in Glasgow was probably the biggest amount of schadenfreude I've ever had.

P.S Don't say "Colony of England".

Blake's poem
And did those feet in ancient time.
Walk upon Englands mountains green:
And was the holy Lamb of God,
On Englands pleasant pastures seen!

And did the Countenance Divine,
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among these dark Satanic Mills?

Bring me my Bow of burning gold;
Bring me my Arrows of desire:
Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of fire!

I will not cease from Mental Fight,
Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand:
Till we have built Jerusalem,
In Englands green & pleasant Land

- William Blake

Most people just put the computer behind the monitor or under it or whatever. The problem with a wedge is that it needs to physically connected to something whilst most keyboards today don't need to be physically connected to anything. You can use your big arse TV as a monitor have no wires between it and the keyboard.

Who wants to clutter up their lounge room with stupid wires?

Yeah, it's Hal with himself posessed by Parallax behind him, drawn by my friend Ethan Van Sciver. Beside that are posters of Hellboy, Batman & Robin by Jim Lee, and Supergirl by Adam Hughes.

People who love wedgeboards, are also used to wires, unless you have a wireless A1200 or C64 in your lounge!
