It is amazing for me to think that it has been 30 years since the ZX Spectrum was released. The BBC has a good interview with two of the designers of the Spectrum which will be interesting for anyone else like myself who cut their teeth peeking and poking on the ZX Spectrum. As I now live in the US it is still amazing to think how much more advanced the British home computing market was than in the US.
Also, as a side note for any die-hard Spectrum fans Manic Miner is actually available to run on your Windows WP7 phones! Enjoy!!!
