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.

Happy 20th birthday, Amiga!

The Amiga is now almost old enough to go bar-hopping. How cool is that?  Commodore introduced the much lauded Amiga 1000 on July 23, 1985.  I was a gawky teenager at the time, a pathetic fact that encouraged me to dream of owning one day and night.  That day kinda arrived; I eventually nagged my girlfriend into buying an Amiga 500 a couple of years later.  The Amiga offered a rainbow of color graphics and sampled sound in a world dominated by drab PC clones.  AmigaOS featured a windowed operating system a decade before Microsoft got its act together -- like a mac built for gamers, but for far less bling.  Not that anyone knew what bling was back then.
