It may have been the world's best-selling computer from the 1980s, but the bulky, tan-coloured Commodore 64 has been overshadowed of late by revivals of the Sinclair Spectrum.

Sinclair ZX Spectrum, C64, Amstrad CPC and Sinclair Quantum Leap (QL) by far my passionate memories associated with.

Do not buy a console gaming system now. #Nintendo #NX #Playstation4VR #Xbox
There are no doubt people that know all about whatever the plans are for a new Xbox, a PS4 4k, or the Nintendo NX. Some are at the companies responsible, of course. Others are developers, who receive dev kits in advance to make launch titles for these systems. Others are most definitely at Gamestop, which stands to profit immensely every time there's a new round of hardware. It's from them we heard just now, more specifically, from Gamestop COO T...

The US Department of Homeland Security is recommending you uninstall #Apple's #QuickTime. It's bloody useless anyway. #USDHS
Apple is giving up on QuickTime for Windows. If you're using the software you'll want to get rid of it as soon as possible.

I hear their roast beef is mixed with essentially hot dog meat, which doesn't make me happy whatsoever. Their higher-end items are seemingly decent in quality, though. It's Arby's!

Higher quality food from regular quick-service Mexican restaurants like Taco Bell, although Del Taco is far better than Taco Time. The Mexifries are tater tots. Beef burrito is awesome -- real beef. However, these guys have awful prices -- more than 2 bucks for a regular-size Coke!

Nice to go shopping here first and get good deals, then go to the regular grocery store and get the rest. Lousy meat and produce selections and don't expect bread to last very long.
