Jack Tramiel, the founder of Commodore International, passed away on Sunday at the age of 83.
Any geek that has been around since the 80's will remember the Commodore 64 computer. Fortunately, the company is back on the market and recently debuted its first Commodore Amiga in 20 years.
Way back in 1994, Byte Magazine proclaimed the Amiga had been so far ahead of its time that almost nobody - including Commodore's marketing department - could "fully articulate" what it was all about.
There's something unabashedly cool about retro technology, and when it comes to computers it doesn't get more retro than the Commodore 64. That's why Commodore USA is recreating the very classic computer casing but this time with very modern hardware.
Once upon a time there was a little 8-bit computer called a Commodore64. It was the biggest selling computer of 1982. It played very cool games. It didn't live happily ever after so, it's baaaack!
