You have reached the home page for the Coleco ADAM computer and the ADAM NEWS NETWORK (A.N.N.) the monthly disk based newsletter. We have a list of other ADAM websites to visit, ADAM product suppliers, the history behind the ADAM computer,and information on the ADAM NEWS NETWORK and ANN monthly disks.
While the ADAM computers are aging, we are observing just how sturdy and well built the little computer from a toy company was. Today we have a whole new set of users who are dicovering the fun of using an 8 bit computer that can be manipulated as no other. Ebay auctions always has a large inventory of ColecoVision and ADAM items, from cartridges to printers to newer memory and printer options. While the ADAM had vastly more computing capability than our NASA moon shots, it still has vastly more computing power than most users will ever use or need. Even the original ADAM programs are so compact and complete that the modern programs don't outperform them.
From MICROFOX TECHNOLOGIES - an IDE "hard drive" media to install INSIDE your ADAM w/ 100mb of space - 40 EOS partitions of 160k to 1.44mb each and 4 TDOS partitions equaling 2 to 8mb each. A parallel printer card to give ADAM the ability to use ink jet printers; has an eprom onboard to boot into the IDE media; and acts as an addressor card allowing ADAM to use the the 256k and 512 k memory cards we have available thru ANN. Follow the link below for the "A.N.N. Catalog". Another GREAT resource received from a longtime ADAMite - an original set of Coleco Technical Manual, Programmer's Manual, ColecoVision Manual, and ADAM schematics - now available for downloading, follow the "ColecoVision Programming" link below. They ARE compressed w/ 7zip and are quite large, it will take several minutes to download each file.
