I bumped into that Alan Sugar on memory lane...

You're quite right.

Can't think what made me forget that. I even have a Trash-80 clone in the "museum" here!

MS-DOS paternity suit settled

Ah, nostalgia!

Quite right. I was there; I remember asking Gary about that - especially the bit about flying!

:-)

See my memory of the occasion in a recent blog entry at NewsWireless - http://www.newswireless.net/index.cfm/article/3539 is the link.

The piece is a bit of a cheek on my part. I have lost an awful lot of back numbers of various pieces I wrote, back to Electronics Weekly in 1974, and including PCW NewsPrint starting 1977, right through to PC Mag and ZDNet. Precious little of that is archived on the Web.

If any readers have bits of nostalgia stored on their shelves, it would be VERY MUCH appreciated if they could mail me (go to NewsWireless.net and hit "contact") with the date and a scanned page from the magazine? I'll try to acknowledge anybody who submits a memory which makes it into publication...

SanDisk and Microsoft BFFs around software-stuffed memory

See "Redmond hijacks U3 flash memory stick standard for Windows control"

"Despite what many have assumed, the new Sandisk-Microsoft flash platform isn't about data storage for mobile users. It's more about making digital rights management and security for Vista computer users more completely under Redmond's control..."
