      Buy it if you want, you're the one spending money not the haters. Like it or not Ataribox will be the official Atari branded console/computer that came out after 25 years.

  3. Being bald is great. Why? Becus i grew out what i have and use a comb and hair gel, and people (mainly at work) get annoyed that I style it. Comb-over or slick back! it makes me happy! :)

      I lost most of my hair when I was in my late 20s. I just keep what's left cropped really short with a buzz-cut. Me being bald seems to bother other folks a lot more than it ever bothered me.

      I had amazing hair that women were crazy about until my late 20s. I got the bright idea to shave my head to see what I would look like if I ever lost my hair. I liked being bald. It was a lot quicker and easier to get ready to go out without hair that was down past my shoulders. I kept it shaved for a couple of years. Then when I decided I wanted my hair back, it turned out during that time it had gotten thin and my hairline had receded. Now I just keep my head shaved. I really miss my hair t...

  4. Space Invaders for the 2600 was the first home license of a coin-op video game.

      And Computer Space was the first release of a coin-op based on an experimental video game! Good times!

      Pong wasn't licensed - Atari already owned it. Many of the early 2600 games were coin-op conversions, but didn't need licenses from others.

      Touché Mr Strum! I was thinking home "use" I guess...

  10. Nolan Bushnell made $15 million from the sale of Atari.

      They were making money but also spending a lot of money. He wasn't sure how sustainable it was going to be.

      I can recall that from some interviews as well. He wanted to go public with stock for the company, but the stock market kept having 'hiccups', so he decided the only way to get the capitol needed was to sell the company. Basically, if it wasn't for the lousy 70's economy of the time, he probably would have kept the company. Who knows? Atari might still be a major player today.

      Ataribox will fix that! :D

  12. The original design of the 2600 was to include two speakers in the top deck for stereo sound.
