That Amiga section is wrong as well. The ST was not rushed on to the market and was never planned around Amiga technology. It was in fact started *before* Jack purchased the Consumer Division. Likewise Atari Inc. was certainly not contracting manufacturing to Amiga, they were simply licensing Amiga''s custom chips. And even then it was for a game console, not a computer. The pending licensing agreement was for an Amiga based game console to be released for the Winter of ''84, which would be allowed to expand with a keyboard expansion in ''85. Then finally in ''86 Atari Inc. would be allowed to release a regular Amiga based computer. Amiga wanted the time to release their own computer on the market - which the pending agreement stipulated. We cover the entire situation in Atari Inc. - Business Is fun (on Amazon) including showing some of the original agreement.

That intro is completely wrong. He did not by Atari Inc., he bought a division of Atari Inc. - the Consumer Division. He in turn folded that in to his own company (TTL) and renamed that to Atari Corporation.
