RISC OS Bits, who popped up on the RISCOSitory RADAR with an amusing acronym just in time for April 1st this year, has released a new product called the RiscPOD – a 40GB 2.5″ hard drive in an Acorn branded enclosure, with an emulator installed and ready to run. Four versions are available – IyoPOD, with RPCEmu installed; ArcPOD, with ArcEM installed; BarePOD, without an emulator so you can set it up yourself; and CustomPOD, on which other set ups can be installed on request.
Ee be free, ee be.
Well known to readers of Archive Magazine, the group known as T.O.M.S. – who first appeared in the magazine in volume 13, issue 11 (August 2000) with a review of the Epson Stylus Photo 1200 – had a semi-regular series of articles published in the A5 periodical from volume 17, issue 3 (December 2003) until volume 19, issue 4 (January 2006) . That series was centered around using VirtualRPC, an emulator for Windows and Mac OS X computers that allows those people who need to use those platforms to continue to enjoy using RISC OS without having to have two computers on their desk, and was called “VirtualRPC in Use”
