VIScorp Purchased By BLAZEMONGER INCORPORATED
Yes, Amiga fans, the rumors are true! As of six hours ago,
VIScorp has been purchased in a surprise takeover by BLAZEMONGER
INCORPORATED. VIScorp chief honcho and generally cool guy Carl
Saskatchewan is reportedly "delighted" with the acquisition and looks
forward to an "er... unusual product line" to be introduced at next
month's WORLD OF BLAZEMONGER conference in Chickenmilk, Wisconsin.
Among the products to be introduced at the W.O.B. are:
- The Amiga ST: a set-top computer that, when attached to
any television set, automatically converts all incoming
programs into reruns of "Gilligan's Island."
- Sidecar II, an IBM PC emulator roughly the size of
the Queen Elizabeth II luxury liner. Comes complete with
- BLAZESCAPE, the ONLY World Wide Web browser capable of
connecting to ALTERNATE DIMENSIONS. Features multithreading,
HTML 6.0, and new Virtual Java (TM) which beams cool
animations DIRECTLY into your CEREBRAL CORTEX with a
- The AmigaBICEP 5000, their new top-of-the-line computer. In
direct contrast to the original Amiga 1000, which used an
off-the-shelf CPU and a custom graphics chipset, BLAZEMONGER
INCORPORATED has decided to use an off-the-shelf graphics
chipset and a custom CPU. Known as the BLAZEIUM chip, this
little speed demon runs at a blazing 2,000,000 tychohertz (10
to the power 8275, base 19) and features over EIGHT BILLION
REGISTERS for the ULTIMATE in hardware banging!!!
- And of course, BLAZEMONGER MCXLVII: "FATAL DEATH KILLERS OF
ARMAGEDDON." [Availability is pending the overturn of the
Communications Decency Act, and possibly the Geneva Convention.]
See you in Chickenmilk!!
