Now this is a cool keyboard. Not does it use early Cherry MX Blacks for its key mechanisms, but it's also an infrared wireless keyboard replacement for the PCjr! As well as the "PC Senior," ha.

INCREDIBLE 90s Racing Simulation Accessories | Nostalgia Nerd
Nostalgia Nerd


Published on Jun 15, 2018
Welcome to the 90s, a time when gaming & computer accessories aimed to do one thing; MAKE GAMES MORE REALISTIC. More often than not, all they did was make games more crap. In this video I'm looking at two main items; The SpectraVision Logic3 FreeWheel AND the QuickJoy SV-129 Footpedals, combined with Nigel Mansell's World Champsionship racing. This POWER trio should make one hell of an unbeatable driving simulation experience. VR MOVE ASIDE.

The Original IBM PC 5150 - the story of the world's most influential computer
Modern Classic


Published on Jul 18, 2018
This is the story of the first IBM PC - the computer that's the original ancestor of one you probably still own. Today, nearly 40 years after its introduction, modern PC's are used for everything from the kinds of business applications the system was originally designed for, to scientific work, to high-end gaming. But it all started back in 1981 with the IBM 5150.

If you're looking for a more personal take on this computer, watch for my upcoming review of this IBM 5150!

If you want your own IBM PC, they're not cheap but they are plentiful on Ebay, and I'd love it if you used my affiliate link: https://ebay.to/2Nmzcaa

I was heavily involved in the PC industry during the entire timeframe of this video. Usually, when I see a video like this where I know something about the subject, I choke over all the errors that it's riddled with. This one is a breadth of fresh air! It's a well organized overview, and it's accurate. Kudos to its makers.

Hacker Finds Hidden ‘God Mode’ on Old x86 CPUs; ‘These Backdoors Probably Exist Elsewhere’
August 12th, 2018

One more for your herniating Compromised Down to the Silicon file folder.

Via: Tom’s Hardware:

Some x86 CPUs have hidden backdoors that let you seize root by sending a command to an undocumented RISC core that manages the main CPU, security researcher Christopher Domas told the Black Hat conference here Thursday (Aug. 9).

The command — “.byte 0x0f, 0x3f” in Linux — “isn’t supposed to exist, doesn’t have a name, and gives you root right away,” Domas said, adding that he calls it “God Mode.”

The backdoor completely breaks the protection-ring model of operating-system security, in which the OS kernel runs in ring 0, device drivers run in rings 1 and 2, and user applications and interfaces (“userland”) run in ring 3, furthest from the kernel and with the least privileges. To put it simply, Domas’ God Mode takes you from the outermost to the innermost ring in four bytes.

“We have direct ring 3 to ring 0 hardware privilege escalation,” Domas said. “This has never been done.”

That’s because of the hidden RISC chip, which lives so far down on the bare metal that Domas half-joked that it ought to be thought of as a new, deeper ring of privilege, following the theory that hypervisors and chip-management systems can be considered ring -1 or ring -2.

“This is really ring -4,” he said. “It’s a secret, co-located core buried alongside the x86 chip. It has unrestricted access to the x86.”

The good news is that, as far as Domas knows, this backdoor exists only on VIA C3 Nehemiah chips made in 2003 and used in embedded systems and thin clients. The bad news is that it’s entirely possible that such hidden backdoors exist on many other chipsets.


“These black boxes that we’re trusting are things that we have no way to look into,” he said. “These backdoors probably exist elsewhere.”

Video 2000 - or V2000 is the video cassette recorder format that Philips predicted would have 50% of the European market by 1985.

Everyone is familiar with the Beta vs VHS battle, but here's the story of the other video tape format - the 'Video Compact Cassette', V2000 : the European alternative.

If you want to see more about Beta vs VHS watch Technology Connections series of videos - Part 1: https://youtu.be/FyKRubB5N60

Walk Around an 80s City with LASERDISC! The Domesday Project | Nostalgia Nerd
Nostalgia Nerd



Published on Nov 21, 2018
The Domesday Project (spelt Doomsday Project by some) was a collaboration between the BBC, Acorn Computers, Philips and Logica to create a digital and updated version of the 1086 Domesday book. This digital version would use the latest in cutting edge interactive video and be held on the latest LaserDisc technology. Aided by schools across the country, in a huge national collaboration project, this would be an enormous project spanning 2 years and collecting a huge range of data from the UK. Alongside this data were photos, stories and even the ability to walk around several UK towns. Just like Google Earth or Streetview in the 1980s. You can actually experience real 1980s street footage, which you control. If you want a window into the 80s, then this is the multimedia machine to use. All this is the exciting 80s I remember. Packed with emerging technology and exciting projects, and its one reason I love it.

Thank you, as always, to the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge for allowing me to film and use their glorious machinery.

On Tax Day 2018, the IRS electronic filing system went down. Turns out the government's computers were still partially relying on old code meant for gigantic 1960s IBM mainframes like the Martinsburg Monster. What happened?

● Description
As much as I loved the Commodore Amiga I was starting to get jealous of my PC owning friends systems in the early 90's. Higher frame rates, more colours, hard disks as standard, I wanted to taste the PC action and if my magazines were to be believed I could, with a simple upgrade to my Amiga. I couldn't afford one back then but I have one now, so lets find out once and for all if my Amiga could be a good IBM PC for under £200.

Published on May 3, 2019
Introduced to the public by none other than Bill Gates at CES in 2007, the $1,500 OQO Model 02 was the world's smallest computer to run the latest full version of Windows! Too bad that was Windows Vista.
