RiscStation withdraws mailing listBy Chris Williams. Published: 15th Apr 2003, 20:28:08 | Permalink | Printable
And the portable?It was no shock to us yesterday when we were told that the RiscStation laptop mailing list had closed totally without any warning to the people on it who are, by the way, RiscStation customers awaiting a portable having paid in a deposit of some sort. Earth calling RiscStation?
Set up in February this year, we always wondered what was being discussed on the list seeing as RiscStation had no deliverable product to speak of until it was leaked to us that RiscStation were unbelievably still considering which processor to put in their portable RISC OS device.
Despite RiscStation's chief spin doctor Paul Johnson accusing us of damaging RiscStation's business (something we take very seriously) with our article and asked for it to be removed, the RiscStation representative we spoke to on the phone on Monday didn't seem at all alarmed by our coverage, adding they didn't know what Paul had been saying over the weekend and that they'd call us back.
Except they haven't. When laptop?
Paul Johnson (who is currently throwing a tantrum on usenet, getting all jealous over Castle's Iyonix) replied to our inquiries this evening with, "I have no comment to make to you on any of these matters".
Not in the dog house, are we Paul?
