Since 1994, Cloud-9 has been in the business of
developing and marketing cool hardware and software products for users
of the Radio Shack TRS-80 Color Computer 1, Color Computer 2 and Tandy
Color Computer 3. The company is made up of a couple of guys who get a
kick pushing the CoCo beyond what it was originally designed to do.
Mark Marlette is the
founder/brainchild and hardware guru of Cloud-9, having started the
company as a resource for quality CoCo hardware and software. Though he
bought his Color Computer in 1983, his first system was an
RCA COSMAC ELF, based upon the 1802 microprocessor.
Like most of the die hard CoCo users today, he attributes his
real-world success to the CoCo.
Mark lives in the country just outside of Delano,
Where Are You Guys?
In our labs, of course! In addition to Cloud-9's
headquarters, located in Delano, Minnessota, there is "Lab North," also
in Delano. The main focus is on hardware design and firmware
