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.

Postal Service Fun

There's nothing better than opening your mailbox (a real one) and finding it stuffed full of interesting looking stuff. That's the idea behind Postcrossing, an internet site that hooks you up with other people who want to send and receive postcards around the world. It's the brainchild of Portugeuse programmer (and postcard afficianado) Paulo Magalhães:

"The goal of this project is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, almost. The main line is: if you send a postcard, you'll receive at least one back, from a random postcrosser somewhere in the world. Why? Because, like the author, there are lots of people who like to receive stuff by mail. If you add to that, the surprise factor of receiving postcards from different places in the world that you probably never heard about, you can turn your mailbox into a little surprise box."

I wonder if someone in Japan would enjoy receiving my Mastercard bill?
