WSJ Blog; Commodore 64: Welcome Back, Old Friend.... (Blink, Blink)

The Commodore 64 is back. Well, sort of.
The big beige box familiar to computer lovers in the 1980s is again available — albeit with some updated technology and a new company behind it.

Rest of the article is here.  If you are in the mood for 80's nostalgia, read the comments to the article.

@Deano - I would have never thought it would be repackaged.

I had one of those with all of the whistles. I used a 13 inch TV for a monitor. I use to design and program games on it. About 5 years ago, when I got my Mac, my wife wanted to take it to one of those tech collection throw away days in town. I said I wanted to put it on Craigs List at free to a collector. That same day a guy came buy to look. He couldn't believe his eyes. Everything still worked. He was a very happy guy.

@Odie - I had one too and did some programming on it. I will admit I had some fun writing insane printer programs.
