We are joined by Amstrad streamer Xyphoe (Al) this week to talk about the mobile/cell phone hitting 50 years old, to ponder if the PS3 really is retro and to remember our old navigation buddy Autoroute.
All this and more plus the Community Question Of The Week!
Thank you to our poor sponsor Pixel Addict. We apologise for the ongoing shambles that is your sponsorship slot. Actually, we did a pretty good job this week. Please take a look at https://www.pixel.addict.media/ where you will be greeted by the front cover of the current issue. If you haven't already bought a copy you can do so online or head to WHSmith in the UK. If you are overseas you can still buy online or ask your local newsagent to do the right thing and get you a copy each month....sorry, every 6 weeks.
