Google This tweet from Tom Warren made me smile. So, it's 2012 and tablets are finally able to do what the Amiga did in 1985. Seems like a bit of a stretch to be excited about that, right? Sure, until I caught myself getting excited - only a bit, but still - by this piece of news. Update: removed me being an annoyed child.

The Amiga in 1985 also didn't have usb support,an integrated display,ect,ect,ect.


It's really funny to see these Amiga and Beos fan boys running around acting like the Amiga and Be machines were the machines that most people wanted. They weren't.

In fact they were far from it. In fact if I remember right the Commodore 64 outsold the Amiga during the Amiga's production run.

Yeah, because USB was a killer feature on the C64

There weren't any USB devices, so it would have been a Useless Serial Bus I guess.

hence the </sarcasm > part of my post ;)

I thought I'd made the context pretty obvious but I guess some people really need everything categorically spelt out for them....
