Usually Mr. Herbert is spot on when it comes to his science, but he goes a little awry when explaining the Atari 1200XL. When I was a kid I had no idea, but now that I am older, it only makes me sad. But hey, they guy is entitled to a miss once every 50 years right?
Besides the flawed tech, the segment is great. I mean c’mon its an Atari 1200XL on Mr. Wizard’s World! Geek dream come true.
