The Commodore name licensed again for a line of keyboard PCs

We’ve always had a soft spot for Commodore computers. Compact, economical, and robust for their day, they were ubiquitous throughout the 1980s. Unfortunately, the machine’s glory days are long behind it, with little more than some gaming rigs and the tireless work of Ben Heck to keep the flag flying.

But all that could change if Barry Altman has his way. As President and CEO of the newly minted Commodore USA, he’s spent the better part of a year crawling through the arcane red tape necessary to get the rights to the Commodore name.

The Top 13 Bond Girls of all Time

With the recent rumors that Camille Montes Rivero, the female lead in Quantum of Solace, may become only the second Bond girl to appear in multiple James Bond films (the first, Sylvia Trench, appeared in the franchise’s very first two films), we got to thinking about which Bond girls are our favorites.

We considered a number of attributes in assembling this Top 13, including intelligence, charisma, impact on the Bond franchise and popular culture, and, of course, sex appeal. So in the spirit of James Bond films, pour yourself a martini and enjoy the Top 13 Bond Girls of all time.
