Retrogeek

This is just so *super awesome* (albeit for a very select number of people out there), some guy has found (stuffed in his parent's garage) a huge pile of magazines that were published back in the 80's, all computer/gaming related and starting with the ones put out just after the release of the ZX81 he is very kindly sticking the most interesting bits under a scanner and uploading them to his new blog "Retrogeek"...

Excellent stuff...enjoy... ;)

It's a total trip back in time...really spooky seeing the prices (like £595) for machines which are such staggeringly low spec...and people paid!

In ten years from now kick-ass Alienware comps that retail for £4,000 will look crappy - so, the people that paid then will just upgrade today - thankfull they did otherwise we'd all playing games on consoles lol.

Well, there is something to be said for static architecture (from the development side if nothing else)...
