On Prototype Acorn Unix-powered A680 lands on eBay:

Great stuff, would be ace if you could. Sad as it may sound, but I'm a bit of a geek when it comes to old Acorn tech, hence my curiosity!

  • Watch the trailer of BBC's Acorn versus Sinclair history docu-drama
    The BBC have a uploaded a trailer on the BBC 4 website showing scenes from Micro Men, a drama that "provides an affectionately comic account of the race for home computer supremacy in the 1980s". It was previously titled Syntax Era, but the name was changed after executives feared non-geeks wouldn't get the pun. The programme charts the battle between Acorn and Sinclair, and stars Martin Freeman (The Office) as Acorn co-founder Chris Curry and Alexander Armstrong (Armstrong and Miller) as Sir Clive Sinclair.

  • Prototype Acorn Unix-powered A680 lands on eBay
    A rare Acorn A680 running an ARM port of BSD 4.3 has hit online auction site eBay with a minimum opening bid of 100 quid. According to the seller, believed to be ROL's Paul Middleton, there are only a half a dozen of these pre-production systems left in existence. The A680 was developed by Acorn for Olivetti in 1988, and features an ARM2, 8MB of RAM, a 66MB hard drive and an early version of Acorn 4.3 BSD Unix kernel in ROM.
