STD announces expansion, new nameBy Chris Williams. Published: 27th Sep 2003, 20:47:21 | Permalink | Printable
Promising good new thingsFrom the first of October, 'Stuart Tyrrell Developments' will become the trading name of 'Advantage Six' in a bid to differentiate the RISC OS side of their business from STD's general electronic design business. STD's move, announced this weekend, is hoped to illustrate that while they are comfortably expanding and taking on new staff, STD will still remaining committed to RISC OS end users. STD sell various hardware products for RISC OS users, from PS2 mouse converters to Simtec powered USB solutions.
Although 'Advantage Six' sounds like an upmarket, pastel wallpapered south London design agency, the name is definitely a world apart from 'STD', which we imagine wouldn't go down well in the business to business relationships that STD would like to foster. RISC OS end users will still find STD at the usual addresses and telephone numbers.
"Our ethos is to design, commission and implement 'ground up' solutions - for example, development of NET100 included a full, clean stack", Stuart Tyrrell confidently explained in his company's press release. "As the design and associated code is not taken from public source or owned by others outside the project, this work may be sublicenced elsewhere with a corresponding reduction in development costs for RISC OS implementations.
"We have a number of mass-market devices in development which may benefit the RISC OS marketplace in a similar manner."
We, of course, look forward to closely following any new developments Advantage Six bring to our platform.
Could this be the future online home of Advantage6?
