Read about the last British computer company - in the bath

Psion special goes binary

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Last month, we published something unusual for us: a long feature about the consumer electronics pioneer Psion. It's full of previously untold stories: the plucky outfit could have been the British Sony. But we know that reading long pieces on the web is a pain. So as promised, we're making it available as a PDF download.

Our technical wizards have been preparing for this moment for years and have devised the most sophisticated DRM technology ever attempted. Taking a cue from the music business, our USB dongle will spray a corrosive coating of hydrochloric acid over your PC - followed by a sarcastic sprinkling of chappati flour - if you attempt to so much as open the PDF.

Unfortunately, this dongle wasn't ready in time (and we're too mean to take on any more disfigurement lawsuits). So we're simply making the PDF available if you click the button below, that leads to PayPal.

This gets you a beautifully designed document that's optimised for reading on the train home, or in the bath - and contains exclusive material you won't find on the web version. Clickers will also be the first to hear about updates. Oh, and you get a free Epoc Word format version thrown in.

All for around the price of a pint of posh lager.

Happy reading.
