"In what must have been a new year's resolution because that's the simplest way to explain the transaction, Gateway sold all of the assets of Amiga computer to Amino Corp., whose president, Bill McEwan, worked for Amiga when it was a Gateway subsidiary."

"McEwan was unceremoniously dumped along with Amiga president Jim Collas at the end of August. Shortly after their departure, Gateway said plans for new hardware had been scrapped. That had been the last word out of Gateway until the sale."
