PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Commodore, famous for revolutionizing the personal computer space, has had many ups and downs. But now the name is back, emblazoned on a handheld that does the lot - the Commodore Combo. The Combo is a portable NAV/MP3/MP4/CE device based on a Windows CE platform.

Blaspheme! The Commodore 64 and Amiga 500 _rocked_!

I really wish they would build a small computer that ran emulators. C64, NES, SNES, GBA, etc.. Although getting the licensing rights to include such emulators would be hard I suppose (apart from the C64 one).

Ahhh, memories.

Check out this site : http://www.64hdd.com/projects/hardware/c64-dtv64.html

They took a C64 direct-to-tv joystick which actually functions as a real c64 (it can load most c64 software) and modded it to include ps/2 and joystick ports. The result? A c64 "Micro Tower" measuring 180x100x55mm , how cool is that!
