Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Miles Gordon Technology, known as MGT, was a small British company, initially specialising in high-quality add-ons for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum home computer. It was named for its founders, Alan Miles and Bruce Gordon and was founded in Cambridge, England in June 1986, by the two ex-Sinclair Research employees after Sinclair sold the rights for the Spectrum to Amstrad. In May they moved to Swansea, Wales, became a public company in July 1989 and went into receivership in June 1990. As the ZX Spectrum became hugely popular, the lack of a mass storage system became a problem for more serious users and while Sinclair's response, the ZX Interface 1 and ZX Microdrive, while very cheap and technologically innovative, was also rather limited. Many companies developed interfaces to connect floppy disk drives to the ZX Spectrum, one of the most successful being the Opus Discovery, however these were all to some degree incompatible with Sinclair's system.
