The Philips company is 120 years old this week. It surprises me there's zero attention about this. For us it's a memorable week as Philips is the mother of CD-i and lots of videogaming facts. It's also a bit sad to realize all references to its multimedia history are disappearing, even more now Philips intends to close the Redhill Research facility and move the remaining departments to Cambridge. Philips Research Redhill was the centre for a lot of CD-i developments.
