Rise of Retrocomputing (NYT)

Post by theimann »

There's a recent article in the New York Times on retro computing:

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/08/styl ... uting.html

Nothing spectacular but the ST is briefly mentioned and they have a picture of an odd-looking Mega-esque monitor/disk drive combination which I wasn't aware of.

Unless you tell me otherwise I'll assume that the drive thingy is just a mock prototype taped on front of the monitor to make the computer look more like 'serious business'.
