If this seemingly unrelated company really is using Acorn's good name intentionally in this way, I hope Paul's contact with Companies House throws up some dirt, as Acorn is very much a part of RISC OS' history whether we like it or not. People still fondly remember RISC OS as "that quirky system that ran on Acorns", but if the 'new' Acorn becomes a dubious (in the way it was set up) PC box-shifter, all credibility will be lost. It'd be like Watford Electronics all over again...

ajb: It's a simple typo. There is no resulting dodgy website displayed, just a broken link from the exhibitor's page. Perhaps your web browser defaults to searching the web for near matches in the case of a page-not-found error and this is what you saw.
