I just got back.
The Channel F is the first programmable color cartidge based video console.
It predates the Atari 2600 by about 1 year (1976). The controllers have 8
degrees of freedom: normal joystic directions plus twisting plus pushing up
or down.

The ISBN fo the Haddock is: 0-89689-098-8
Copyright 1993
The publisher is:
Books Americana, Inc.
P.O. Box 2326
Florence, Alabama 35630
And I still can't believe that the COCO had a 6899E for a processor :)
