"Jack Me" writes: Amiga have added a small update to their site.: Jan 4, 2003 - Amiga Inc. would like to apologise unreservedly for the delay in getting the T-shirts out. We have received all the orders from the dealers and no blame should be attached to the dealers for the delay. There are several reasons for the delay and we are working on trying to get these remedied as quickly as possible. We hope to have everything sorted out in the next few weeks.

Amiga Inc. apologise for T-shirt delays : Comment 37 of 60ANN.lu

In reply to Comment 36 (Anonymous):
I tend to agree.


A VC-funded company with loads of failed promises in their baggage takes preorders for products that are not theirs and not under their control.

It was not specified (at least not initially, the usual subsequent and incremental "clarifications" were necessary) WHICH products that were offered in the coupon deal. A Teron mobo? A computer system built with a Teron mobo? A copy of AmigaOS for Amigas (CS/BlizzPPC)?

It was not specified what the PRICE of the products is/will be. My guess it's gonna be exactly $50 more expensive than it would've been without this scam... ;-) Great savings, and nobody will ever know...

It was not specified WHEN the products will be available.

The "raffle" was outright fraudulent and totally incredible. If we sell a million coupons we'll raffle a trip to Mars and an "Amiga cellphone", or something...

Then it all morphed into a company fanclub membership or something. Nothing was said about what t-shirt the suckers would get would look like, nobody even bothered to ask for sizes. Again, there was no word on when these would be shipped. Then the suckers were to design the t-shirts themselves... Then it morphed into "market research" for how many Teron boards Eyetech would order. Then Bouma stepped in and advertised it to the outside world as "helping the platform" and general charity.

No, I can't say I'm feeling sorry for those who bought this.

Congrats, ainc, to a successful fundraising. Too bad you suffered losses in Goodwill Capital, but that has never seemed to bother you.
