"There will be an exciting promotion/contest that we will be announcing later in the week with regards to AACE and the Entertainment Packs. We assure you, this will be a great deal of fun, and we look forward to introducing Amiga to several new customers who are currently using PocketPC and PocketPC Phone Edition devices." Bill McEwen wrote that a little while ago.
Can anyone tell us just how exciting the promotion/contest was ? Did any ANN readers take part ? It sounds as though it must have been fun, maybe someone has photos ?
