So this morning I discovered a video that is honestly too good not to share with the rest of you. If you go back in time to the 1980’s, 1985 to be exact, a revolutionary computer hit the market – the Amiga. Following a number of Amiga computers with descriptive names like 500, 500+ and 1,000 a company called Apple took-over and well, the rest is history.
Now sadly when you go to the Amiga website you’ll find this once potential computer giant has become, well, a Blackberry game-maker with a very 1994-looking website. It just goes to show that companies poised to take over the world now could disappear before you know it. Remember Netscape? Or Rio, who dominated the portable MP3 player market?
One wonderful piece of history that does remain is this incredible promotional video for the Amiga computer that honestly you should watch because, well, it’s awesome. Enjoy!
Did you have an Amiga? What was your favorite game? Do you still have it?
