The technology industry has just lost one of its leading manufacturers. Supervisor reports Sir Clive Sinclair died in early September 16 at the age of 81 following a long illness. Well known for its Zake computers, which did well in the UK in the early 1980s – they were able to make home PCs at a time when most brands were expensive. For example, the ZX Spectrum 16K lost $ 125 while Apple launched the Apple II $ 1,298 a few years ago.
Sinclair is also known as the inventor of the first pocket pen, the Sinclair Executive, in 1972. The first invented Texas Instruments (HP-65) was not invented until 1974. He was the first inventor of the C5 electric bike, in 1985.
Like many manufacturers, its operations have not always been successful. Sinclair’s computer business encountered difficulties in 1984 with bad QL, and he sold the company to Amstrad in 1985. And although the C5 probably lasted several decades before it expired, it did not mean sales. The Sinclairs car business collapsed less than a year after the C5 began.
Sinclair’s legacy is obvious. For many gamers and gamers, Sinclair’s computers represented a great moment. McGill University he realized that many well-known producers and studios, including Peter Molyneux, David Perry and Rare, cut their teeth at ZX Spectrums. Pocket calculator is still useful even in the smartphone era. And it is safe to say that EVs are here to stay, plus up in the yard. There is a real chance that Sinclar’s work has affected the professionalism in your life, even though you have not been involved in any of its sales.
