<< Speaking of reference manuals, does anyone have any information / insights
 into a Visual Technologies Commuter? Manf in 1984, it uses two Intel chips
 (8086 and 8088) with a plethora of RAM chips not to mention at least four
 program subroutines. The manufacturer seems to have disowned this
 unit since two people in their tech department have not heard of it.

I wonder how many non - PC compatibles have used Intel 8088 or 8086 chips. I
have heard of a machine called an "ACT Apricot", which is said to have had
voice recognition and a GUI. Could someone tell me about it and others? My
reasoning is that there are lots of neat things that could be done on an
8088, but not with a DOS system.
