New Atari Console that Ataribox?

Recommended Posts

I was tempted to transcribe it, but I would lose the local color and emotion that way.

I just turned on YT close captioning ... totally worthy.

Wow... what a festering stinkpile of stolen images and bad templates. I'm not even going to bother trying to read any of it.

Just by glancing at it gave me a headache.

Did I miss it, or has no one found the aptly named Fred and Friends taco truck taco holders yet?

 

I wonder if I could use something like that for a Raspberry Pi case...

A day in the life of John

 

 

I really really wonder if he's autistic. This is not a slight towards John at all. I have two children on the spectrum, and the in the way he defends the ataribox, I see hints of that.

 

Yes, I'm being sympathetic.

 

Must be my own psychiatric drugs kicking in.

He's the guy for whom the phrase, "cool story, bro," was coined.

It'd need to be way more then 10,000.

 

Walmart has over 4000 stores in the US

Target around 1800

Best Buy around 1000

GameStop over 4000

 

Add in Amazon, and the websites for those 4 brick and mortar retail chains, and 10000 isnt even close to enough for those 5 stores alone.

Yeah, but given Atari's financial issues, 10,000 units would be pushing it. How much did they make from IGG? $3million? At least half of that would be needed up front to build'n'ship 10,000 retail units.

 

I am pleased that they made the design changes. But, again, I cannot for the life of me figure out what it brings to the table.

I hope the price of tacos doesn't go up. Hopefully if they do they settle back down when my refund is done so I can buy some to celebrate. Getting closer to not having to worry about it.

For better or for worse, USA has the technology to make tacos without relying on Mexico. Just like Atari fans can make their own little TV-connected computer to "game, stream, and connect like never before."

 

Tomatoes and avocados, though? They'd be affected, so your guacamole is either going to suck ass or cost $40/pound.

 

I have an enormous schadenboner over the Feargal vs. AtariBox legal case, which should either settle or get a court date real soon now.

Everyone should have all stocked up on a few dozen cases of #6 Military M.R.E, Beef Taco.

Who will survive the Tacopalypse?

 

I knew this would happen one day! no one believed me, they called me names, crazy, lunatic, smelly, a Taco Fanatic... We ALL saw the sign 2 days ago on page 666, Taco MRE 6 = Beef Taco.

I almost forgot about that legal case. That is up real soon isn't it.

Back in the 1850's, we absorbed half of Mexico just for this purpose. We knew the day would come when out Taco supply would be threatened by trade deals. ;)

Since this forum often veers into reviews of chain restaurants, I'll share this story I found interesting. What reminded me of AtariBox? Hmmm

 

That company, Ovation Brands. filed for bankruptcy twice more by 2016, at which point USA Today noted that it had “the dubious and relatively rare distinction” of entering what finance guys like to “jokingly refer to as Chapter 33 — that is, Chapter 11 bankruptcy for a third time.”

 

:ponder:

Wasn't ChestyNutz supposed to be speaking yesterday in New York? I think I saw powerdubs post about in another thread.
