Unfortunately, over the years, well known British brand names in consumer electronics have been bought and used by companies who originate elsewhere. Decca, Bush, Leak & Roberts are ones that immediately spring to mind. The motor industry has a similar situation, (Jaguar, Land Rover, Rolls Royce) but at least the products are usually still made in the UK. So, Acorn Computers is not the first, nor will it be the last, to turn up as something completely different.
