Computer history museum San Francisco

Just got back from vacation in San Francisco and England. One highlight I thought suitable for this blog was the trip to the computer history museum. This place recently opened in Mountain View near where Google has its offices.

Alas they did not have the first computer I personally owned (the Commodore 64) but among the hundreds of exhibits were two other iconic computers from UK companies I used as a kid.

ZX Spectrum
This Spectrum was the first computer I remember using.

BBC Micro
At one point the BBC Micro was in every classroom in the UK.
