How very apt
I've got one in my retro collection. Classic computer, and great for running CP/M stuff.
"There was also support for other printers, using the optional and rare RS232 serial interface."
I've got two of these. They also have Centronics. I've used the serial interface to send software from a PC using Kermit. Lot's of CP/M stuff is archived on the 'net. You need to set the terminal/console as VT52, and the printer emulates the Epson FX-80.
To me this seems a very cool bit of kit.
Cue the fanboys queuing up already
I think it's superb that people are still supporting film photography like this.
Superb computers, and yes, very much ahead of their time. It's just a shame what happened to Commodore, and any attempts to bring it back.
I actually find Google+ to be very useful. And autobackup is fantastic. (under Android)
And Tim Cook is a dick.
What a load of pretentious crap
Those look superb! I'd seen the grey +2 on eBay via Spectrum 4 Ever on Facebook.
28? Awesome! That's a lot of Beebs.
As soon as I found out about this, I knew I wanted one. I'm a big Spectrum fan, and this will go nicely with my original ones, and the emulators.
What an utterly crap idea
Give them at least two years.
Years ago, I bought a sealed boxed Release 2.1 (2.something, anyway), that was only to be sold with an Amstrad PC2086, from a charity shop. I also have a boxed 3.x. I must dig out one of my retro PCs for a Lotus 1-2-3 session.
The good old days of DOS. From the time when people largely knew what they were doing.
Can we see you do better then, oh great one?
But you couldn't get a BBC Micro until 1982, and the ZX Spectrum was way cheaper.
I developed great skill in aligning the heads of car boot sale cassette recorders for use on a ZX Spectrum. I bet I could still do it now.
I have a PCW8256 dated 1985, so it's one of the first. I must use it as a terminal to a Linux box.
True, but if you're geeky enough...
I believe she likes it up the register.
Yesterday's technology tomorrow. You can buy better, but you can't pay more.
Apple love to be seen as a 'premium' brand, when in fact they sell over-priced, restricted crap.
I've heard lots of bad stuff about EE. I'm so glad I'm with Three. That works really well most of the time, and in most locations.
"Sorry but total fail to any IT professional recommending Chrome."
And why's that then, oh obvious pro?
I actually really like the look of it.
If Apple do this, you will be locked into your car, rather than locked out of it.
Bloody awful looking thing. Typical Apple pretension. The old design was way better.
Looking forward to somebody hacking this crap
Another quality Apple product
The surprising alternative to photography.
No constant stream of game requests, and utter bollocks about 'Like and share if you agree', etc. Google+ attracts the more tech savvy/less twatty people.
CTRL+ESC does Windows Key
It was a Windows 3.1 product.
Yeah, because we all need even smaller SIMs, and they take up so much space.
About time Apple were taken down a peg or two.
I must dig out one of my old computers.
Makes a nice change to see somebody not oozing over Apple's latest bit of over-priced kit.
I bought one recently from WH Smith for £59.99. My reasons for buying were low cost, and ePub support. Well worth the money.
Got it on Atari collections for my DS and PSP.
Huge respect to the RPI guys. Will be ordering come pay day.
As title really. I wonder if they will do a 10th anniversary model?
I first saw this on YouTube. Check out the Samsung promo vid.
A great idea. Sometimes you really do need a stylus.
Yes, I too am waiting for the +1 button on here, and that article would have been a great use of the feature.
Sticking with GNOME 2 here, and Xfce if I ever have to change.
they fixed it when it was pointed out to them.
Seems about right really.
Great article. Very interesting.
