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.

Daisy Wheel Electronic Typewriter

Brother daisywheel
Here's something from the Retro Thing Holiday Gift List. The Brother GX-6750 is an honest-to-goodness daisywheel typewriter and it sells for less that $100. It's electromechanical -- a microcontroller decodes the keypresses and drives the rotary type wheel, but the output is similar to a traditional. The machine includes a very modern 65-character correction memory and comes loaded with correction ribbon, so you don't have to suffer through the torture of whiting-out errors by hand.

So what are you waiting for? This is your chance to become a bonafide typewriter-wielding author.
