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.

Pixelated Christmas LEGO

[Here's some festive Scandanavian plastic from our man in the UK, Giles Perkins - Ed.]

Christmas, it's coming and I'm feeling slightly festive.... Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without hours spent pouring over 3D  exploded drawings of everything from tractors to trains, and Yoda to  yachts. LEGO - you either get it or you don't. I do, big time, and  one thing that my years of nimble fingeredness taught me was that  when Ikea came on the scene I quickly became a whizz at deciphering  their flat pack nonsense too!

Anyway, true to form those crazy Danes  have released Holiday Decoration II, pixelated Christmas fare in  the form of Santa, an Angel, a Tree, a slightly scary Snowman and a  puzzled looking Reindeer. A bargain at £9.00 from the Lego store and  a fab way into the biggest and best of proprietary toy building  products from Europe. So if you want to give the gift of 3D  visualisation this holiday, scoot over to your local LEGO stockist! [Speaking of Christmas spirit, I notice Google has started running holiday themed ads on Retro Thing. Maybe that's why I'm craving eggnog. - Ed.]
