In this week's podcast episode, we reminisce about simple times in the world of computing - can you believe it has been 40 years since the introduction of Sinclair's ZX81? A game changing machine that brought home computing to the masses, and spawned the even more popular ZX Spectrum. Without these computers, things might have been very different!
We also look at the ongoing Silicon shortage and the unobtanium that is nVidia's new RTX 3060 GPU. And the hot topic of the M1 SSD comes up again.
