The tech industry just lost one of its best-known inventors. The Guardian reports Sir Clive Sinclair died early on September 16th at 81 following a long illness.

He’s best known for his namesake company’s ZX computers, which thrived in the UK during the early 1980s — he succeeded in making home PCs accessible at a time when most models were still major expenses. A ZX Spectrum 16K, for instance, cost £125 where Apple launched the Apple II for $1,298 just a few years earlier.

Sinclair’s computer business ran into trouble in 1984 with the ill-fated QL, and he sold the company to Amstrad in 1985. And while the C5 may have been decades ahead of its time, that didn’t translate to sales. Sinclairs’ vehicle business ran aground less than a year after the C5’s debut.

Though he insisted yesterday that he was ‘currently single’, Sir Clive has told friends he and Ms Millar, 69, are an item. For 25 years the pair had an on-off relationship but it ended when Sir Clive met Ms Bowness, now 40, at Stringfellows nightclub where she worked as a dancer using the name Paris. 

They married in Las Vegas in 2010 and afterwards Lady Sinclair announced she was ‘over the moon’.
