Reintroducing the Commodore 64

Every geek remembers the Commodore 64. This 8-bit beauty, with an astounding 64 KB of RAM, took the home computer market by storm in the early 1980s, outselling IBM, Apple, and Atari. Ah, the good ol' days!

Well, the C64 is back, and it's better than ever. The classic favorite has undergone a complete overhaul:
    The revamped computer will be available through the Commodore USA online store, which is set to open June 1, according to the company's Web site. The computer will be an all-in-one keyboard, with Intel's 64-bit quad-core microprocessors and 3D graphics capabilities, according to the site. To conform with the times, the PC also offers up to 500GB of hard drive storage and 4GB of RAM. Also included are a DVD-RW drive, a touchpad, four USB ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port and a DVI (Digital Visual Interface) port to connect monitors.
That's a far cry from the very first computer I ever used: the Commodore PET.
Our kids will never know just how hard life was back then.

Solar Beat

For those of you into ambient music, you might enjoy chilling out to this "simple ambient musicbox, with sounds generated using the orbital frequencies of our solar system."

I wonder why Holst never thought of that.
