The rise of the microcomputer (video)

An interesting video from the Open University discussing the rise of the microcomputer in the 1980s and the great variety of machines as computers became democratised and were within the aim of normal people and not just corporations. Some lovely nostalgia as well here, i remember my ZX-80, VIC-20 and BBC Micro well... I had friends who had C64s, Orics, Dragon 32s. Nowadays everyone has an iPad.
