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.

Essential gear for the hi-fi spy

Nagra_snstrIf I were a secret agent, I'd need something to record my "interrogations" of beautiful foreign spyettes.  In keeping with my dapper image, it would have to be a Nagra SNST-R  miniature reel-to-reel tape recorder.  This Swiss work-of-art weighs in at a mere 21 oz and measures a svelte 5.75" x 4" x 1" -- not much larger than an iPod.  It runs for a respectable 5 hours on a pair of rechargeable AA batteries, and the Nagra site recommends the SNST-R as "the ideal candidate for all portable, location or discreet recording applications." 

They conveniently forget to mention that you need to be a gazillionaire to afford one; it retails for a stratospheric 9599 euros.  At that price, I'd better take two.
