  1. OH, right, we were gonna do a recap of the past 900 pages... A long, long time ago... On a website far, far away... Atari - Guess what, we're gonna make a console... Internet - Yea... Right... Atari - Don't doubt us, we're really gonna do it... Internet - Tell us another tall tale... Atari - All you got to do is... GIVE US YOUR MONEY ! Internet - We knew there was a catch to this... Atari - We'll call it "Ataribox" Internet - What a stupid name, people will get it mixed up with the Xbox... Atari - Okay we changed our minds, we'll call it the Atari VCS... Internet - Great, now folks will get it mixed up with the 2600 as it is also known as the VCS... Atari - We're going with Indiegogo... Indiegogo - You don't have to have a working anything to use our services, come right in Atari... Atari - Not to worry Internet we'll keep you up to date on what we're doing... ~ Time Passes ~ Internet - This has to be a scam, there hasn't been any updates for months... VCS fans - You all are just haters, give them time... ~ More Time Passes ~ Atari - We're making an announcement that there will be an announcement soon (tm) VCS fans - see we told you so... ~ Yet even more time passes ~ Atari - We promise we'll have something to show soon (tm) ~ Sometime later ~ [ Insert video of someone playing Tempest 4000 here ] VCS fans - ooooooooo, aaaaahhhhh, woooooow Tempest 4000 programmers - That video is a fake as no one here is working on a port for the Atari VCS... VCS fans - .... Atari - Uhm... Look... it says demo only right there on the video... ~ Things go quiet for awhile ~ Atari - We'll have something to show this 'Summer' ~ Summer Passes ~ Internet - Well ? ~ Fall Starts ~ Atari - We got something to show now... [ Shows off 'the board' ] VSC fans - see you were worried over nothing... Internet - That's nice, where is the RAM ? [ News leaks about the main guy working on the innards gets out ] Internet - Oh this just keeps getting better... Atari - Watch this... [ Video / Gif of the logo going on & off on the Unit ] VCS fans - see it works... Me - a $400.00 light switch, I'm not impressed... ( this brings us up to date ) P.S. Insert something about Tacos somewhere in the timeline above...
  2. Could you say that again, I wasn't paying any attention...
  3. He looks kinda bored frankly... Like, can we just get on with this con ? When is lunch ? Who is this bozo ? What is he even talking about ? I sure could go for some Tacos...
  4. We wish they were, they aren't... However a video of this might be too... 'Interesting' for the gang over at the VCS fan club house...
  5. We're gonna make it to page 900 just with these photos from this meeting...
  6. A video would be better proof of things then just still images, for all we know Woz just nodded his head at all the 'features' Fred talked about... Frankly the image we do have... Woz looks 'unimpressed'... Gee wonder why...
  7. Gosh, the white space sure comes in handy on these photos
  8. Just to clear a few things up that Fred got wrong...
  9. Whoooooo Are You ? Who Who Who Who... I Really Wanna Know... Whooooo Are You ? Who Who Who Who... * With apologies to mister Townsand of course
  10. The very thought of Industry Grandpa Steve Wozniak going 'Bleep" "Blip" "Blop" "Bloop" broke my brain, you sir win 1 Internet, use it wisely
  11. OH... "Look at me I'm playing with the UNconsole" Like that ?
  12. I don't know why, but this gif gives me the giggles, also The Woz looks like he's turning into Santa... Gee, wonder who'll get coal this year...
  13. The Saga So Far ( if we are living in the real world that is ) The Woz - And you are ? Fred - I'm Fred Chestnuts, I own Atari ( I'm not even gonna try to spell his name correctly, so there ) The Woz - That can't be right they died back in the 1990's Fred - I bought the rights to Atari... The Woz - You must of just bought The Atari Name, as it was deader then a door nail... ( and so forth and so on )
  14. I'm more expecting this... The Woz - And you are ?
  15. * some assembly required - like an OS, also a front end to play classic games on, we can't be bothered to do that ourselves, but the logo lights up, isn't that neat...
  16. The Woz He hasn't done anything tech related in what seems like ages He was on dancing with the stars recently So they want to show the 'box' to The Woz Show something to the man who invented the personal computer way back when, someone who would know at a glance what does what on their bargain basement board, someone who after looking at said board would laugh himself into the next century.... Oh yeah, this can't go wrong, can it ?
  17. Lets see... Rasberry Pi - Well it depends on what model you get - Zero can be as low as $5.00 Case for the Pi - $8.00 - well, unless you want it to look like an olde skool 2600, that might cost a little bit more SD mini / micro card - $20.00 - This might cost less depending on MB / GB size you want Mini Keyboard - $15.00 Small LED screen - if you don't want to plug it into a TV or whatever have you - $7.00 All slightly over $50.00 Still a hella lot cheaper then the VCS, even if you toss in things like an OS for the Pi & RetroPi to play olde skool games, you still aren't paying a whole lot Well, not as much as for the VCS itself that's for certain, and anyone who's ever put together a computer can do this, there's your 'console' VCS fanbois Put that in yer pipe & smoke it P.S. ( as long as we're using STYX videos )
