Those wonderful Sinclair computers of bygone days were the hit...right?

Well, don't look now, but their back!

Don't know how good nor how long they'll last but they are coming back!

In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

I agree. Video games and things that were well done (for the day!) and long lasting are just worse, my mom's like 15 year old fridge still works (and Art's washer), they make enterprises out of it now like its natural breathing. It worries me to see technology having problems like this. This is just one thing I've noticed. There's lots of national pit-holes everywhere I see. For example, AIs would never work on multiple separate products/series of the same thing - different styled clocks for walls, rather only the 1 best needed thing. And the Oculus Rift, wasn't that started in like around ex. 2008?, how to make it isn't a discovery, its a invention - a craft - which the "governing" civilization should have immediately noticed, had workers engineer it, and produce it, instead of having some guy do it and finally sell it...ew. Not smart.

Wow!  That looks interesting, to me.   

Under "Quickstart" on the website,

it says it connects to a Television.

Looks cool, I had a speccy too.  I'm at loss as too why there bringing  it out though.

There are loads of good spectrum emulators for PC's and android phones/ pads.

I still have two of the originals with various peripherals - they were still working the last time I tried them.
