Podcast Episode 14: TI-99/4A, Acorn Atom, and BBC Micro

TI-99/4A with PEB

In this episode, we cover two computers from two coasts. One is American, and though important, we wouldn’t really say groundbreaking, while the other (other two really) were British, and were in fact very groundbreaking in the English market. Today we are boldly, fully entering the 1980s with discussions of the TI-99/4A and the Acorn Atom computer, which led to the BBC Micro.
