Tandy was dandy

“Tandy was once a major brand in personal computing, with its TRS-80 among the early 8-bit era’s most magnificent and successful machines. By the 1990s, though, the salad days were gone and the bizarre nest of acquisitions behind the company—it started out as a leather supplies retailer, which shares the name to this day—saw the brand fade into that of subsidiary RadioShack until that, too, died in bankruptcy.” From: Tandy-brand computer products are back / Boing Boing

I have such fond memories of Tandy computers, they were a big part of my youth. So sad they’ve become a shadow of themselves. Related: Don’t bring up Commodore — I’ll cry.
