"One company doing well is Acorn which markets a product called Adam". Um,
no, COLECO made the Adam. Acorn made the Atom. There was also the Proton
(codename for the BBC Micro) and Electron (cutdown BBC Micro).
Also, the British currency symbol is a prefix, not a suffix - "£200" is
correct, "200£" is not.
Just me nitpicking as usual :)
