image for British personal computer catches Microsoft and Apple sleeping
The Loganberry, unveiled today.

Sir Clive Sinclair came out of retirement to launch a brand new pc he hope that will revolutionise the home market.

"In one small compact unit I believe I have developed the machine of the future." said Sir Clive.

A multi million pound facility will be built in Liverpool bringing at least two jobs to people in the local area.

Professor Hugh Jarse who helped develop the computer was on hand to give some technical details.

"It will have a maximum of 500 bytes of memory, a 7 inch screen and vibrant green graphics." said Professor Jarse.

Sir Clive went on to reveal the new computer would be called the 'Loganberry'. "We believe that following the success of other fruit based technologies such as Apple, Blackberry and the new Banana hand held scanner, Loganberry would be sufficiently Sci Fi with fruity overtones to be successful.

Microsoft and Apple were obviously caught cold as neither company had heard of "The Loganberry" before our reporter mentioned it.

Add ons will include a 500watt fan to keep it cool and a magnetic tape drive storage unit.
