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.

Quasimoto Home Arcade Consoles

Quasicade 2Quasimoto makes the Quasicade line of home arcade systems. They're not cheap, starting at about $1699, but these units are attractive and well-constructed. My fave is the $2199 Quasicade 2. It's a 70 inch tall upright unit that features dual controls (with 20 analog buttons, 6 digital buttons, two eight-way joysticks and two analog sticks), a 27" high-rez monitor, and backlit marquee. You'll have to provide your own PS2, Xbox 360 or MAME emulation system to power the action.

Is a home console worth forking out more than two grand? That's a question only you and your accountant can answer. By the way, it weighs 387 lbs (175 kg), so air shipping in time for Christmas is out of the question.
