Sir Clive Sinclair
RIP

Did anyone else have the Spectrum 48k with rubber keys when they were a kid?

Big part of my childhood between 1985-1990 playing on that Computer and loading games via a tape recorder.

You don't Come On Benrahma, and it's nice you've finally been honest with yourself......

Re: Sir Clive Sinclair
Nobody believes that COYI properly earns (for example, getting it because his father is rich and soft doesn't count) a proper 6 figure (an integral number of pounds sterling, not pennies or Turkish lira) salary.

The fact that he thinks that repeating it ad infinitum makes it so is further evidence that it isn't.

Anyone able to identify a product that six-figure (2 in hex) Come On Benrhama has introduced to the marketplace, successful or not?

Umbrellas don't count as they've been around for centuries without any significant design improvements.

As somebody who actually did business with Clive Sinclair back in the day I can categorically state he was a hopeless entrepreneur. Genius possibly, eccentric definitely.

Re: Sir Clive Sinclair
So he invented the small-pocket pocket calculator?

Not sure about that, but I'd need to know how small a small pocket is to start investigating...

And what about smaller-pocket pocket calculators?






























*really need a tongue-in-cheek indicator for the lower-intelligence WHOers (if you didn't know I wasn't being entirely serious before the gap, you're one of them. Sorry)

Sinclair had an IQ of 159 apparently. A whole century greater than Block's.

Yes, I always remember the TI as the first calculator, and it was
The clue though is in the 'Pocket' - the original TI was a bloody great thing and you would have needed a pocket like Jordan's Jack and Danny plus a few bob to buy one (£50 comes to mind)
Apparently one of his forte's was taking an existing concept and re-engineering it into a cheaper and smaller size

Re: Sir Clive Sinclair
Had one of his early calculators then eventually his spectrum with the “dead flesh” keys. Loading rudimentary games would take an age.

Funny, I thought I used the term 'them' (meaning more than singular) so it's you who've embarrassed themself AGAIN.....and you with all those fancy pieces of paper eh?

Re: Sir Clive Sinclair
He was a carrot top, flame head, ranga ( as the Convicts like to say) wasnt he?

Oh no , I'm a fvcking slap head in me 20s?
or:
Thank fvck for that, no one can call me "Swan Vesta" anymore?

Re: Sir Clive Sinclair
Did a double take when the Beeb said he invented the pocket calculator, so I looked it up.

First design of a properly portable calculator was at Texas instruments, first commercial product was Japanese.

You might have a point there son, if I was the same person as Swiss, but I'm not, so you've just embarrassed yourself there.

Re: Sir Clive Sinclair
Sad times. May have got some ridicule for some of his stuff that didn't come off, but he was a classic mad British entrepreneurial genius.

When Come on Benrahma/Swiss start trying their 'I'm being stalked' act on here it means there's an element of truth to what you posted about them.......I like seeing this desperate trait of theirs......

Re: Sir Clive Sinclair
It's obvious by Come On Benrahma's postings on here that he was a nerdy wanker like Sir Clive back in the day and is now trying to play catch up with his life but Sir Clive delivered good ideas to the masses albeit some of them were flawed. Unfortunately Come On Benrahma delivers pizza & a bullshit side........

Morning STALK of Ham, son.

Re: Sir Clive Sinclair
Shame, bit of a trailblazer old Clive. Made some massive mistakes too, some of which were just ahead of their time, others just plain bad moves. I think this made him a more endearing character from the outside at least. Got a lot of unwarranted grief over the C5, which actually wouldn't look too out of place today in a world where masks and adults on silly fucking scooters is the norm. RIP.
