This week Neil and Chris mull over whether it should be Retro or Vintage Computing, take a look at some proposed new game controllers from Hori, marvel at the incredible Tomb Raider Advance (yes, the original Tomb Raider running on a Game Boy Advance), reminisce about their most used Ceefax and Teletext pages while looking at a modern implementation that feeds in up to date info and consider if there is such a thing as a computer designed to last.
