From 1985... Another Beeb spotted in a later segment about Revs, demoed by race driver David Hunt, at the time sponsored by Acornsoft, here:
https://youtu.be/16NwJwAmbcs?t=21m40s
Then a bit with Geoff Crammond talking about writing the simulation. And then a quick mention of Olivetti's takeover of Acorn.
Another mention of the Olivetti "rescue" here (about the 4min mark):

ChinnyVision looks at the A3000:
:idea:
Thanks to the members of this forum that made the video happen, especially Rob. The main machine featured was owned by The Future Was 8 Bit but when that machine packed up just before I did the direct capture it was Rob who stepped in and sold me an A3000 so I now have one of my very own. All the direct capture comes from his machine which is the channels A3000 going forward.

The Deathbed Vigil and Other Tales of Digital Angst

Dave Haynie's handmade documentary shot in the days surrounding the bankruptcy of Commodore International at their headquarters in West Chester, Pennsylvania. This is an insider's view into the events of 25 years ago to the day. Very much worth watching, despite the limitations of amateur video equipment of the time.

An unexpectedly socio-politically-analytical take on micros, masquerading as a review of the C64 and uploaded on April 1:

(That's cued up to the very brief mention of the Beeb)

"...this is the failure of the technological utopia - because it's more important to do something that people find interesting than it is to do something worthwhile."

Another Kim Justice video, this time on maybe the greatest piece of bedroom coding ever; Matthew Smith's Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy.

A visit to the newly opened(?) Micro Museum in Ramsgate - a big collection with very many UK machines including of course Acorn machines: Image

(Not my visit - this is Neil from Retro Man Cave.)

An earlier telling of that story in text (it's a good one):
“Larry Tesler was the guy who did the deal originally between Apple and Acorn when we spun out ARM,” said Hauser. “At that time, Apple bought a 43% stake of ARM for $1.5 billion, and it was Larry who did the deal back in 1990.”

A few years later, though, and Apple was in freefall under the leadership of John Scully. That was when Apple decided to sell ARM.

“John Scully was running Apple at the time, and they were in real trouble, real financial trouble, and in fact they were about to go bust,” said Hauser. “The reason they didn’t go bust was because they sold their ARM stake that they had originally purchased for $1.5 billion for $800 million.”

That’s a staggering $700 million loss, but if not for selling ARM, Hauser says, Apple might not even be here today to give us iPhones and iPads.

Lots of these Apollo videos appearing in my feeds as well.

I watch this MIT one from their archive. Was interesting

https://youtu.be/ndvmFlg1WmE

Edit: Most of the stuff mentioned is no longer used, the exception being the Mylar, of which I have a roll off for heat gun stuff.

Edit2: I suggest watching one I posted first, the above. The modern one makes more sense when you see how it was originally built and used.
