Is 8-bit Dead?

This is a the cover from a 1982 issue of InfoWorld magazine which asks an important question facing computer owners as the eighties march on. Obviously the answer to this question was not simple. I grabbed this to put up here on the site because I like that it is now over 30 years later and 8-bit is still not dead, in fact it has transcended its original definition and is now applicable to genres of music, art, etc. 8-bit is far from dead.


I think this would make for a great t-shirt or album cover for an 8-but music band. What do you think?
