Today I present you...
« on: 23:27, 17 April 19 »
...a current photo of the former headquarter of the Schneider-Rundfunkwerke AG. Nothing reminds of the good old days.


Today I also noticed that one of the former bosses died just a few weeks ago:

Sad indeed. From the article:
Quote
Der erste Schneider-Fernseher von 1983 gilt bis heute als die „deutsche Antwort auf asiatische Billigimporte“. Auch im damals noch völlig neuen Markt der Heimcomputer setzte Schneider im Jahr 1984 mit dem Amstrad CPC646 ein Ausrufezeichen, das dem Commodore 64 ernstzunehmende Konkurrenz machte. Ende der 1980er-Jahre war es dann der Schneider Euro-PC, der mit einem Preis von 1300 D-Mark erstmals auch breite Käuferschichten erreichte.

Hmm, the Amstrad CPC 646... didn't know about that one  :D  Maybe the precursor to the CPC 666??

No, that's a product from an alternate universe where Sinclair bought Amstrad and released a 48k machine with a microdrive. Because their manual soldering was awful they could only address 46 of the 48K.

Another late post from Gryzor, that's why I had a "deja-vu"

The CPC 666 came bundled with this game, did it not?
