Legal A little over two months ago, OSNews had a bit of a run-in with Commodore USA's CEO, about how I felt about the company and its rather dubious business practices. This led to a legal threat we laughed away here at OSNews, but laughable or not, a legal threat is a legal threat, and it never sat well with me that it was never retracted or apologised for. Well, that changed today.

I can respect that. He’s probably too much of an ’80s power business man to fully understand the best way to interact with potential customers here on the interwebs, and I don’t blame him for that.

Some advice, Barry:

* Demonstrate a good, working product and if exciting enough, the readers will practically do the advertising for you

* Let customers be creative and let go of control of where that goes. The viral stuff happens when people are supported in doing their own thing

* Focus on the details

* Don’t talk business-talk, buzz words and product strategising synergies on the Internets. It simply does not work. Talk technical and honest to us

* Learn to laugh at yourself, as well as others ;)
