IMAGE MAKERS
How does a company market itself?
Take Commodore and Atari a t the
PC Show. Commodore's stand, they
said, was bigger than any other at
the show, and was part of a much-
heralded E 6 M p r o m o t i o n a l
campaign t o persuade u s o f the
company's size and importance. I t
coincides with the launch of... Er...
Well, the... new Amiga TV modulator.
No one in the computer industry
doubts the value of marketing if you
want t o s h i f t micros i n l a r g e
numbers (Commodore are aiming at
40,000 new sales b y Christmas).
Surely, though, you need something
new to sell if you're going to invest
heavily in advertising. Where were
the 6 8 0 2 0 machine, t h e n e w
KickStart chips, t h e 1 megabyte
Amiga 500, the Commodore hard
drive and the new high-res monitor?
Atari again turned their stand
into an 'Atari Village', so there was
no shortage of new products, but not
much room for Atari_ When you did
find - Atari's b i t , t h e r e w e r e
conspicuous absences. This year the
company has announced more new
products than most, a l l o f which
have been covered by Format, but
few have seen the light of day. The
laptop ST was originally scheduled
for launch at the PC Show, but there
wasn't even a model of it. The Abaci
made a showing at last, but only as
developers' kit in old Atari PC cases.
There was no preview of the pocket
PC, due for launch in January. No
news of the Super ST.
Were as keen as anyone to see
new products (probably keener as
we're trying t o pass the message
on). We are also sure that Atari and
Commodore a r e among the most
innovative c o m p u t e r companies
around_ Surely, though, a show the
size o f the PC Show is the ideal
place to demonstrate new ideas and
keep us coming back for more.
