Amiga & AROS Always wanted to own the IP and trademarks of one of the most innovative computer brands in history? A brand carried by a computer which was easily ten years ahead of its time, capable of multitasking (in colour) with multiple resolutions displayed at the same time, while Windows were still windows and the Mac couldn't hold more than 8 pages in its word processor on its single-tasking monochrome operating system? Yes, Bill McEwen's Amiga, Inc. is selling the Amiga trademark and all associated IP. It's not like the guy was doing anything with it anyway.

Just because something is in the shops, it does not mean that it either sells or it is a successful product. That is why companies go under many times... because they have too much stock in retail channels that no one is buying.

I don't think the issue with you not being rich is of the "quantitative" persuasion, but most likely it is due to qualitative issues.

But by all means, go ahead an try to charge 30% extra for an off the shelf machine with the Spanish word for "lady friend" and see your bizness take off... LOL.
