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.

Namco's New Arcade Collection

The Namco Museum 50th Anniversary Arcade Collection was release several months ago for the PC, Xbox, PS2, Gameboy Advance and Gamecube. And somehow I didn't notice.

It offers up 14 classics from the 1980s: Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Galaxian, Dig Dug, Pole Position, Pole Position II, Rolling Thunder, Rally X, Bosconian, Dragon Spirit, Sky Kid, Xevious and Mappy.

The word on the street is that these appear to be based on the original arcade code and that any embedded easter eggs (such as Galaga's 'hold enemy fire') work as you'd expect. Perfect for those  who still have all of the old Pac-Man game patterns buried in their subconscious. Street price is around $20.
