German RISC OS event gets coverageWe normally shy away from reporting on RISC OS appearing in mainstream media, mainly because we wish to avoid being stereotyped as 'fan boys'. However, seeing as this particular discovery is so out of the blue and even managed to make this cynical editor smile, we'll give it a shot.
German RISC OS dealer A4 has revealed screengrabs of coverage of last Saturday's Auto event on a local TV news channel. Broadcast through the ether and via cable TV, the package was shown on the RBW channel.
Clips from the report show close ups of Microdigital kit and posters, RISC OS Select running on an Omega and A4's Detlef Thielsch. It would seem our elusive pals at Microdigital are pretty good at getting press in Germany.
Maybe it's about time we start rattling our BBC contacts. Amusingly, the RBW screengrabs were captured on an Iyonix, using a PCI TV card.
