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.

RIP: The Floppy Disk (1971-2011)

Yeah, I know it's a 5.25" drive...

Sony recently announced plans to end  production of 3.5" floppy disks in March, 2011. What amazes me most is that they still sell about 12 million per year -- there must be a lot of legacy lab gear that still needs them.

I can't honestly remember the last time I bought a floppy. I'm guessing it was sometime in the late 1990s. How about you?
