The Icon Bar: News and features: Iyonix/RISC OS in the Guardian
 

Iyonix/RISC OS in the Guardian

Posted by Andrew Poole on 13:03, 16/12/2002 | , , , ,
 
A quick tip-off from our very own John "moss" Hoare points us at the Guardian today, which has an article about the Iyonix and how RISC OS could be set to make a comeback.

The article makes an interesting read, and outlines the Iyonix and gives quick mentions to Virtual Acorn and the Omega.

If you want to have a read of the article without buying the newspaper, you can find it on the Guardian website.

Who's going to be the first pedantic so-and-so to point out that they spelt RISC OS incorrectly? :-)

Unregistered user When were anonymous comments switched back on? I love them!

The Guardian article: playing on nostalgia, isn't it? Perhaps more people would buy an Iyonix if salespeople targeted punters in the 25-50 year old male demographic by whispering "Psion, Sinclair, Acorn, hmmm, isn't it?" into their ears.

Why?

Well yes; but you can't help the facts. The contact a lot of people would have had with Acorns is in the past; to ignore it would be a bit silly. It has plenty of forward-thinking stuff too :-)

Unregistered user They've also mis-typeset ARM. I see they mention Drobe, but not The Iconbar in the links at the bottom, too :)

Unregistered user So, what I was saying about trading on nostalgia, the British computing industry, new and exciting microcomputers, colour graphics, the British Empire... ahem! Yes, they should think about using such devices for promotion.

Only online I think. I didn't see anything in the paper version, either. Certainly, the Online section is on Thursdays, not Mondays.

Well, let's hope it's printed on Thursday too :-) It *was* top of the Online section, for a while...
