Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

Koss introduced these headphones over 40 years ago, and they remain affordable favorites to this day.

iPodding a classic table radio


Here's a link to a flickr set full of pictures documenting the transformation of a vintage 1947 National Union G-619 table radio found at a flea market into an iPod amplifier.

Ken pulled out the original tube-based radio chassis and replaced it with a modern transistor amp and speakers. The final result is definitely a head-turner. He get bonus points for keeping the original chassis, just in case a future owner wants to restore the radio to its former tube-based glory. [thanks, Raleigh!]
