New Amiga dealer - handle with care
An member pointed out that there's a new presumably British Amiga dealer called But just a few hours later, there are lots of indications suggesting that one should be very cautious when dealing with this entity:

The only means of contacting the dealer (apart from a HTML form) listed on the website is a mobile phone number, there's no postal address or proper imprint available.

There are AmigaOne motherboards available from the webshop, yet the manufacturer Eyetech states that they never heard about that particular vendor. The domain is owned by, a company that has allegedly cheated PC customers in the past and falsely claimed to be a subsidiary of a reputable hardware manufacturer.

More information and links to further evidence can be found at (cg) (Translation: cg)

07.Jul.2004 (Website) Magazine: Spare issues of the pilot still available
There are still some spare issues of the pilot of the ' Magazine', a currently frozen international print magazine in English language, available as Ron van Herk ('Palpatine') just reports at

The reasons for the frozen status of that magazine are said to be not enough time by the editors and the overall situation of the Amiga market which is not the best condition for a needed and secured market demand.

Financing and material for articles as well as advertisers were not the critical problem, thus giving hope the status might change for future releases again when more Amigas, independent which manufacturer or brand they will be, within the market.

Further information and how to obtain one of the last issues is to get at the title link. (snx) (Translation: ub)
