Lol, good find! Why would they have a picture of an Amiga, surely most kids back then didn't even have the internet.

"Do we have some pics showing kids with a computer?" "Yes, but this one is rather old..." "Ah, it'll do"
Nice find Heavy Stylus

I was just browsing the news at work, saw the photo and immediately thought "hang on, somethings not quite right here" ...wires everywhere, 3.5" floppies on top of the venting and chunky C= mouse. What a great stock photo

Reminds me of the good old days

That was a great spot.

Whatever next? There'll be some uproar about some supposedly ultra-violent, hyper-realistic game and they'll show a pic of some kid playing with a Spectrum

They always use that picture. We've seen it on ITN & BBC news websites.
