Is this actually an official 'Sharp' page? Is this the first time that Sharp has officially linked to an Amiga Inc. site? Fantastic news if it's true.

looks like there is no difference between intent and DE atm.
but that is not a bad thing. it looks like tao is letting amiga handle looking after grassroots developers for intent platform, and hopefully any improvements made while developing DE further will be incorporated back into intent..
btw congrats to the amiga inc webmaster ray, he seems to be doing a real good job...

Wow with "Warning" notice like this http://sl.yunimo.com/SL/SL-5000D/notice.html, I'm not sure a lot of people will try it...

That's more "Tao and its Intent" than "Amiga" : we don't read le "Amiga" name on this (first) page...

www.yunimo.com is registered by Sharp Corporation. The intent page is not very professional looking, admittedly.

Yowsers! Although without the warning, it could have lead to unsuspecting customers complaining about "intent ate my (boing) balls!" :)
I agree, it's pretty off-putting. And people don't want hassle with these PDA things, they just want to use them.

Hi,
Yes, this is officially linked to from the developer section of sharp's website (developer.sharpsec.com). Snippet from the main page of the Sharp Developer Site:
December 10, 2001
Our R&D Lab started intent Download for those who willing to evaluate the intent.
I ordered my Zaurus today! ;-)
Soon I'll be running DE software on a cool new device! :-)
All the best..
Conor

Except he is fond of those ugly gif animations. I can take a boing ball, but not one that is spinning. :)
I do hope this intent thing makes it.

There was an Amiga logo in the original version, I suggested to Gary to have it removed because it was conflicting with the look of the page and its simmetry. They did a nice job. Simple and readable.

re: Webiste animations
ho-hum.. more bitching and moaning about website graphics. Do you ever do anything else but bitch and moan?? Wait, don't answer, I know the reply.
Anyways..
"he" (which is me) did not pick the graphics nor the animations used in this site. All the graphics were chosen by higher ups in Amiga Inc.

I may be totally out of line here, and in a minority... but don't think the Amiga Inc website is THAT bad.
I mean it has a BOING BALL, the links work and tehre's no sodding "flash media" hat takes 5 minutes to load every time you visit the home page. I've certainly seen a LOT worse.
Mind you, I still think lava lamps are cool so what do I know.

hello ray
agreed, why are people bitching about design, when functionality is most important, and execution of all the site seems to be pretty good..
good job

Could you check from the rest of the AI boys when they are going to update this:

(Or perhaps just remove it...)
