Are there any 'large' UK founded computer companies left now I wonder? Mesh went into receivership last month, and I think that was the last one.
    I think that Watford Electronics, a company who I shamefully admit that I worked for many years ago, bought the rights to the Tiny name after Time went titsup™. I don't think what's left of them is manufacturing PCs any more though. Probably a good thing.

    We owned a Tiny computer back in 1995 and it was cannibalised for parts after being replaced. I used the speaker system, incredibly good and brilliant bass on it, until about 2008 when I replaced it. The kit lasted ages, was still good quality and was only replaced after it's last legs gave way. We fired up the base unit later that year too and it still worked, Windows 95 and all.
