Actually, I used to own a Coleco ADAM. I forgot about that tape drive
system, however, didn't the cassette tapes used in it have something
special about them (the casing or something)? I was under the impression
that one could not use average cassette tapes.
Although I enjoyed the ColecoVision, I thought that the ADAM sucked,
except for maybe it's unusually great keyboard.
