Sorry if this has been mentioned already.

The article is about the Amstrad PCW. And guess who was quoted in the article? :D

Digital Retro author and technology writer Gordon Laing

Well, in a few years Gordon could write a book about the beginnings of digital cameras and the mega-pixel race: "Digital Retro in Photography"

I would actually love to write a book about the history of cameras, digital or analogue, in the style of Digital Retro, but with the last book taking years of research and several solid months of writing, I suspect it may be a project I won't be undertaking for a while!

I'll now use this as an opportunity to shamelessly promote my one and only book, here: www.digitalretro.co.uk

Cheers!

Gordon

Shameless!!! ;)

P.S. I had very very fond memories of the Amiga 1200. Frontier Elite II - Those were the days!

I remember the some of the computers in my old secondary school consisted of a few Mac Classics and Mac LC 475s. Ah the memories... :lol:

And I had the Sinclair 80, 81, Spectrum and Atari ST...
That were the times, when each computer came loaded with a programming language (normally BASIC) and we could all become great programmers. There's no such thing today...
What a pity!
