The Vic all-in-one keyboard unit is an interesting idea but you would still need a monitor, so you might as well have a laptop. Would be a bitch if the keyboard was damaged.
I give it another year before the guy's accountants tell him to pull the plug.

Nope, the world's moved on. I use a Logitech K800 myself.

Or a decent modern desktop with a K800.

Yep, thats why the K800 route leaves it for dead.

I doubt it will even last that long now that the clowns have been allowed to completely implode the entire world financial system, again.

Well, Commodore is 'dying' since 1994, but isn't dead and, as I said, revived in 2010, so what the chances are of it surviving, is anyone's guess.
But in any case, the *brand name* is still worth quite a bit, so even if the instance dies, the brand might very well survive/revive, as it already did a half dozen or so times before.

No, they licensed it fair and square. And improved it, and made a successful product out of it.

Have fun explaining why Xerox sued Apple over stealing the GUI. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Computer,_Inc._v._Microsoft_Corporation

Only very minimally, like how windows were resized and moved.

Commercially successful, anyway.

Checking, it wasn't a license per se -- it was a stake in Apple.

It's only usable for relatively simple tasks, for which Apple happens to have the needed software or/and hardware. And it's only usable if your correspondents also have Apples or only need the simplests of file formats.

Jesus... I can't believe the coverage his death has received. When Mother Teresa died, it barely made the news (relatively speaking). Some 'corporate demigod' dies and it's like Jesus himself has carked it. What a wonderful society we have made for ourselves.
