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.

One Bit Music

2048
Mister Beep makes one bit music using a Timex Computer 2048 (a tweaked Sinclair ZX Spectrum).

"The BEEPER has only 1 channel of sound but 3,5Mhz CPU's activity gives from 2 to 8 channels, various modulations, drums, digital sound etc. Still only 1 bit of course."

His site showcases a handful of mp3 demos produced with various classic Sinclair trackers. I can hardly wait to see what he'll come up once he moves up to 4-bit tone generators like the classic Yamaha YM2149 chip used in the Atari ST.
