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.

Squishy Tripods - THEpod Camera Platform

THEpod
Christmas is a mere 263 hours away as I write this. If necessary, I can manufacture an extra hour or two of on-line shopping time by flying west, but I suspect the shopping malls are a bit sparse once I find myself over the Pacific Ocean.

So. Let's pretend your partner/dad/sister/mom/pet monkey/cousin is a photographer and you haven't bought their Christmas present yet. You need something cheap but cool, like THEpod.

THEpod is a really well made little Canadian beanbag with a metal camera mount. Screw on your camera, find a convenient rock or tree stump, and you end up with a slightly squishy but perfectly usable tripod replacement. They come in three sizes: Yellow (for small digicams), Blue (larger digi and film cams) and Red (camcorders and D/SLRs). Prices start at a wonderfully Scroogey $13.99.
