'Last man standing in the floppy disk business' reckons his company has 4 years left


Re: Speaking Of Ancient Storage Methods .....

my VHS tapes didn't - thankfully digitised them before but the tapes are now growing lots of mould over them.

Not kept anywhere particularly moist or humid.

Fire up that Macintosh II: Retro techhead gives the web a Netscape 1.1 makeover


Re: Excellent

WebOne is good too - have it on my raspberry pi for my 486 to connect to. Works with ie 6 and old versions of Firefox in win 98.


Well, erm...

Miss my psion too

Had a series 3, 3c and then a 5mx.

Agree that have still not found a keyboard as good as those - HTC touch pro been the next best.

Also, used have have a parellel printer cable for the series 3 for direct printing - brilliant - no PC required!

Wii price cut coming


Do people with Wiis actually use them?

I'd be interested to know average games bought/average spend per user on software for wii vs xbox/ps3.

Everyone I know with a wii seems to buy Wii Sports, Mario Kart and maybe wii fit and then it all just gathers dust under the telly.

The same fate doesnt seem to befall the xbox/ps3 crowd (though obviosuly these people are more likelyto be 'hardcore' gamers)

Motorola Milestone 2 Android smartphone


Thought about buying one until I saw moto's update record

Was on the verge of buying one of these after I saw the poor keyboard hinge of HTC Desire Z. Having researched moto's update record on the original milestone will sadly be avoiding.

HTC do take a while to get round to their updates but at least you can custom rom.

For the moment, will be holding on to my old touch pro until a decent android keyboard phone appears :(
