The Future was 8bit's new website! Oh look, Rod's finally setup his new website! Currently hosting via www.tfw8b.com but soon to replace www.thefuturewas8bit.com, here you will find the same old 'Future was 8bit' but with more postage and payment options including Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, as well as the usual Card Payments like MasterCard and Visa 😀
THE FUTURE WAS 8BIT WAS BORN AROUND 2012, IT WAS UNPLANNED JUST LIKE MOST OTHER THINGS! #WINK
So, these days, yes I still work full time but all of my spare time is tfw8b.com. TFW8b is still growing, I now have a small of a team of likeminded people helping out for the shear love of it. This means I get the chance to take the profits from one product into the next, because one thing is for sure, TFW8b (ok me) likes to make cool things of the highest standard of quality using our own money. No failed kickstarters here!
TFW8b is a VAT registered UK company. We may sell stuff on the internet/ebay, but we also pay our taxes!
Because I wanted better 8bit things.
The Future was 8bit wasn’t planned! It’s technically still my hobby!
A million years ago, I needed an SD2IEC for my C64 laptop I was making for myself. But we’re talking a long time ago, long before anyone was selling 8bit interfaces on ebay. Anywho, £90’s worth of overdraft later and much soldering, I had a few left over SD2IEC..
And the rest as they say, is history!
