Say, toy stores everywhere are going to be carrying a new spiffy neato
toy computer from atari. Its called the 520 ST or something. Can't wait
till my local K-Mart gets them (for about three hundred dollars). Maybe
I'll get a few of them and give them away to small children I know. Hope
there aren't any toxic easily swallowable parts! Wasn't atari supposedly
getting into the *real* computer market or was that some other company?
Too bad about all the poor folks who payed full price (and defended their
action so eloquently on the net). 

Gee I guess it was management that was responsible for Commodore getting
the reputation of building toys. After all, now that the former management
of commodore has moved to atari, behold, the reputation moved with them.
And looky! Commodore is now building the machine of the 80's. Boo Hoo.
