This is really cool. It was posted to an Apple II retro Facebook group I'm a member of. It was taken this year. All the kids are using Apple IIe's (Platinum edition) with pretty modern iMac's sitting there in the middle of the room. The Apple II's are used daily. Their Apple IIe platinums came out in 1987, 31 years ago, but the heart of the machine hadn't changed much since it's introduction in 1977, 41 years ago. That's nearly my lifetime of computing being used simultaneously everyday in the real world. Astonishing! #retro #retrocomputing #apple #apple2 #history

Facebook reminds me that today five years ago I took ownership of my Lisa :) I never did get the keyboard working though, hence my ham handed homage to the "Hello" on the original Macintosh marketing materials :). #retrocomputing #retro #computing #apple
 
I just got back from a trip and my NeXTBook was waiting for me. My god is that book incredible. Seriously. I was drawn into buying it because it looked like it had a decently comprehensive history with some good photography and a prototype shot here or there. All of that was true but the level of details on the prototypes, the third party accessories, and the present available assistance went way over my expectations. Bravo to Lucio Damilano! Go out and get your copy when the next run is out! #retro #computing #retrocomputing #stevejobs #apple #NeXT #history

The Leica M10-D is a reincarnated classic ‘film’ camera with digital guts - right down to a lookalike 'film advance lever' and no LCD screen


Leica’s latest camera would be tough to pick out among a line of classic film cameras, despite the camera’s digital sensor inside. On Wednesday, October 24, Leica debuted the Leica M10-D, a full-frame digital rangefinder camera with a screen-free body channeling classic film.

As part of Leica’s digital rangefinder series, the Leica M10-D shares the same digital guts as the earlier M10 and other iterations like the M10-P. The camera houses a 24 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with an ISO range from 100 to 50,000, pairing that sensor with M-Mount lenses.

While the M10-D may have the same guts as the M10, on the outside, the two cameras are vastly different. Leica intentionally did away with the telltale LCD screen at the back. The move helps give the M10-D the look of a film camera, but Leica says the change also frees “photographers from all distractions.”

USB-Floppy Drive


Coole Idee... :-)

USB extended by Charles ManginI extended the original cable from the business card USB drive, and routed it through a small piece of plastic, glued in place just inside the opening. This lets out just enough of the cable to plug into a hub or laptop, but prevents me pulling the wires all the way out.
Another weekend project. I decided that I would put a promotional USB drive I received at a tradeshow to good use. The drive itself was stuffed into something the size of a stack of business cards, and my thought was to try and cram those same innards into a floppy disk.

[UPDATE]i've just finished who wants to try this project themselves

Earlier this month, one of the most influential musicians of the 1980s that many have never heard of, Ben Daglish, has ceased.

He belonged to the "big 5" composers for games for 8-bit machines. It's miraculous what they could do back then with the mere 3 voices that could be played at the same time.

These musical themes had a great impact on many of us and are just as famous and everlasting as most popular songs of the era.

Many of the created and programmed sound synthesis patterns and effects also influenced later electronic music.

Internet Archives now has many Commodore 64 games and music that plays online in your browser

The Commodore 64, also known as the C64 or the CBM 64, is an 8-bit home computer introduced in January 1982 by Commodore International (first shown at the Consumer Electronics Show, in Las Vegas, January 7–10, 1982). It has been listed in the Guinness World Records as the highest-selling single computer model of all time, with independent estimates placing the number sold between 10 and 17 million units.

In 2011, 17 years after it was taken off the market, research showed that brand recognition for the model was still at 87%.

I got one of these back then (around 1984), just after I had a Sinclair ZX81. This was my first computer with colour graphics and that had moved beyond plain beeps. I got some of these games to play with SPACE key as Enter, 0 on numeric keypad for left mouse click, and using the number pad keys for direction. I found Castle Wolfenstein, Ghost 'n Goblins, Donkey Kong, River Raid, The Bards Tale, Sim City, Lord of the Rings, Spa... show more

Hmm... tempting. I didn't know the current ARM processors are so closely related to the Acorn Archimedes and that there's an open source RiscOS that runs on the Raspberry Pi.

Retro ist in. Ob Mode, Frisuren, Möbel, Autos oder Technik - alles Retro. Junge Leute stylen sich wie in den 50ern, richten sich ein, wie in den 70ern, legen wieder Vinyl-Schallplatten auf, servieren Käseigel und Toast Hawaii und fahren Minicooper, Fiat 500 und VW-Käfer. Aber die Nostalgie hat ihre Grenzen. War früher Alles besser?

Automakers are tapping nostalgia to promote electric cars — and it’s working


Automakers around the world have spent the last few years promoting hybrid and electric drivetrain technology in order to show how they’re thinking about the future. But lately, some of them are looking back to the past to promote these new technologies.

Demand for electrified versions of classic cars is already strong enough that there’s a growing market for third-party conversions. Owners of classic Volkswagens, Range Rovers, and even Porsches might be surprised to know they already have a few options for making the switch, though the conversions (and the cars themselves) are not cheap.

Tapping nostalgia is a tried and true move as a new technology starts to take hold. After the camera started its shift to digital image sensors, more than one company saw the opportunity to breathe new life into popular old designs. Now, some of the most striking digital cameras in the world are ones that carry more classic design elements, even while the tech inside is as n... show more

Commodore's Beloved Amiga Is Being Revitalized With Updated Retro Hardware


Although it has been over three decades since the first Commodore Amigas were originally released, a fan base for the beloved systems is still going strong. Of course, the Amiga install base is a small fraction of what it was during the machine’s heyday, but the community supporting the Amiga is still vibrant and very much alive. In fact, the Amiga community – and many other retro-computing communities for that matter -- seems to be more active now that it has been in years, and a number of exciting new hardware projects have cropped up or hit major milestones in recent weeks.

Two relatively new projects, led by popular members of the Amiga community Paul Rezendes and John “Chucky” Hertell, are designed to breathe new life into the Amiga 4000 and Amiga 1200. Both men set out to reverse engineer the motherboards for these systems, not only to continue the possibility of repairing existing machines that are prone to serious damage from leaky batteries and electrolytic c... show more
