Rescanned the first issue of Digital

scanned the issues, so I will have to rescan them at a later date.
Christoph Gutjahr has submitted reviews of four German magazines
- Amiga Fever, Amiga Magazin, Amiga Future and Amiga Plus. Also updated the Magazine & scene mag lists
with several new entries. My thanks go to Pamir Talazan, Christoph

Wednesday June 26th, 2002
Hello and welcome to another AiG site update. Over 20MB has been
added since the last update in March. A great deal of this has involved
rewriting existing pages to add more information and better quality
images. Several new pages have also been created for products that
have been announced recently.
Amiga: The Next Generation
As usual I have updated several pages with the latest information
from Amiga Inc, Eyetech, and several other developers.
Classic Amiga developments:
Several new Amiga units have been documented:
- The Scala Workstation 500
and Scala Infochannel Player
were mid-1990s systems that were used for point-of-sale and multimedia
- The Amiga Virtual Reality page has been retooled as a generic
Amiga in the Arcade page, hosting several
interesting Amiga arcade projects.
- Several Amiga-based arcade machines have been documented. Relive
the glory days at the arcade with the Riverboat Queen and the Up Scope machines. I also discovered more information on the
VR POD that indicates it was more
than an Amiga descendant, it was a 68040 Amiga itself.
- The Amiga bundles page has been given
an overhaul and the A500 'New
Art' edition has been added.
- The Draco page has been updated.
Other Important Items:
- The Amiga magazine list has been
updated with several new magazines.
- Due to the closure of Digital Magazine I have written brief
descriptions of the four issues that were available. These can
be found in the Amiga Active section.
- Many new items have been added to the Amiga Gallery
- More adverts have been uploaded,
including the latest Tao Group ads.
- An updated copy of the Amiga Related
Books FAQ has been uploaded.
- I have combined my list of Famous Amiga Uses with Pär Boberg's
list. The all-new Famous Amiga Uses v2.0 can be found here.
- Added several new photos and revamped existing images in the
Amiga photos section.
- Rewrote several sections of the Amiga
- Several new Amiga press releases added to the historical archives
In addition there are many other changes. I've removed some of
the old FAQ's in the Techies Workbench section that were outdated
and messing up my dead link counter.
