Watford Electronics was a British computer electronics company. It was founded in 1972 in a bedroom belonging to Nazir Jessa, and grew to become one of the best-known suppliers of microcomputers and micro peripherals during the 1980s. It was particularly active in the BBC Micro scene, producing a variety of peripherals for the computer.
Watford Electronics gradually moved over to supporting the Wintel market in the 1990s. In the 21st century, the company opened an online store, Savastore, but in 2007 Watford collapsed into administration. Watford Electronics was then bought out by Globally Limited, and in April of that year, the website became known as Saverstore.
Famous quotes containing the word electronics:
“We live in a highly industrialized society and every member of the Black nation must be as academically and technologically developed as possible. To wage a revolution, we need competent teachers, doctors, nurses, electronics experts, chemists, biologists, physicists, political scientists, and so on and so forth. Black women sitting at home reading bedtime stories to their children are just not going to make it.”
—Frances Beale, African American feminist and civil rights activist. The Black Woman, ch. 14 (1970)
