4k pixel goodness!
I really don't get the whole craze around the NES classic. I never had an NES (but I've played games on it). I've played enough games on emulators, and granted the keyboard isn't as satisfying as a gamepad, if I felt like playing those games more often I'd go the Sweets route (orange cat here) - just get the original console and a CRT ;-)
What a difference 20 years make :-) When I was in high school this would have seemed so awesome. Well, it still does, but the super nintendo and the genesis were the thing back then, and shoving it all into a gameboy form factor would have blown my mind!
Windows 95 lives! ... on a DS
Seems like some enterprising individuals has gotten Windows 95 to boot on a Nintendo 3DS. Pretty cool! Not sure how useful it is, but cool nevertheless.
Apple IIgs OS 6.0.2!
Well, it's been a long time (22 years and counting to be more precise), but it seems that someone has patches the Apple IIgs OS, which reminds one of the original Mac System UI to System 6.0.2. You can read more about this update on A.P.P.L.E.'s website. As much as I loved the Apple IIgs OS, I am surprised that people still use it. Then again, I still have my Apple Newton 2100 and there
Macintosh II on Android Wear

I guess it was only a matter of time before some ported emulators on Android Wear. This one is a port of vMac, the Mac Classic emulator which I think runs System 6 and System 7. On a touch-screen, with touch screen controls, it's not all that great. However, if someone could figure out a way to pair a bluetooth keyboard and mouse to it... that could be something. Of course the utility
The Newton invades the iOS!!!
I've said this before, and I will say it again: the ingenuity of the Apple Newton community never ceases to amaze me! We've had the Einstein emulator for quite some time now on Windows and Mac (and some Linux-based PDAs), but not on the iPhone or any other iOS device.Now that is no longer an issue! Newton can run on iOS! There is of course the issue of slowness, but with a little optimization and
Οι παλιές καλές μέρες: Apple Lisa

Οι παλιές καλές μέρες: Apple II
Όταν ήμουν στο γυμνάσιο είχαμε μερικά παμπάλαια Apple II που τρέχανε AppleDOS. Η αλήθεια είναι πως δεν τα χρησιμοποιούσαμε για να δημιουργούμε έγραφα αλλά παρά μόνο να παίζουμε κάτι εξίσου παλαιά παιχνίδια εκπαιδευτικά που είχε
