Acorn User rock on saleBy Chris Williams. Published: 24th Jul 2005, 01:43:22 | Permalink | Printable
Nobody said it was silly seasonWhilst all sorts of old Acorn memorabilia pop up from time to time on ebay, rarely are they as weird as this: up for grabs this time on the online auction house is a decade old stick of Acorn User rock. Put up for sale by ex-Cerilica boss Nick van der Walle, who says he has "resisted having a nibble", the sweet was handed out as part of the Acorn User Spring Show 1995.
We're also reminded that this "unique", "most sought-after" item is not Microsoft Windows or Apple Mac compatible. It also looks like it has more E numbers than an Edinburgh phone book. Happy bidding.
