Ryan kind of got me on a nostalgia kick yesterday, so it was serendipitous that I found the Classic Computer Magazine Archive yesterday, too. This is an incredible treasure trove of old magazines including COMPUTE! and Creative Computing from back in the day. An easy way to kill time over the holiday weekend, too. Here are a few favorites.
- A review of Bubble Ghost, a really kick-ass game from Accolade. January ’89 COMPUTE!’s Gazette.
- A best buy for ’83: The Commodore 64. From the January ’83 Creative Computing.
- Coleco introduces the ADAM computer. “It is a strong contender.” Creative Computing, September ’83.
- A pretty comprehensive look at the “Machintosh.” Creative Computing, July ’84.
- How to upgrade your hard drive. “Prices are less than a dollar a megabyte.” “Although the industry is settling in with 200MB to 250MB for the basic hard drive in new computers, many lower-priced systems come with 170MB drives. Even two years ago, that sounded like a lot. In today’s Windows-dominated world, 200MB will fill up so fast that you’ll be looking for Stacker in no time.” COMPUTE!, September ’94.
Man, I love the internets.
