Then Is Now – Episode 4

August 13, 2011 MGP 1

Brought to you by the folks at Horror Haven, this public access show concentrates on the long since aired Creature Double Feature, as well as (the old) Channel 56 in general and some retro TV moments. Basically, fellow horror nerds reminiscing about the days of yore. Thanks for the clip, RW.

from Wikipedia: “The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, commonly abbreviated WWDC, is a conference held annually in California by Apple Inc.

So, it look like this mini arcade cabinet for the iPad is actually going to happen. Atari even promises to release an impressive number of their vintage titles (like Asteroids) via the iTunes Store at or soon after launch.
