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.

Take The Hotel Experience Home With You...


I once worked for a startup software company, which gave me the opportunity to spend lots of time enjoying quite a few North American airports. Murphy has a few laws that relate specifically to this kind of nomadic existence:

(a) Any connecting flights booked at the last moment will involve a stop somewhere desirable (like San Francisco) on the way to somewhere significantly less desirable (like Yellowknife in January).

(b) You left your iPod at the security checkpoint in the desirable city's airport.

(c) You will arrive at your final destination well after midnight, no matter how early in the morning you start your cross-continent trip.

(d) The only remaining rental car smells suspiciously like a mummified cat.

(e) The only remaining hotel room is either next to the elevator shaft or a roomful of mating wildebeest. And something smells like a mummified cat.

(f) The hotel artwork will be the worst stuff you've ever seen. Even worse than the last place you were at.

With that in mind, check out the stuff at Hotel Surplus Outlet. They've apparently just received a shipment of "assorted older artwork and prints," presumably from some of the fine establishments I frequented during my heady dot com days. I might have to pick up a beige lithograph of a wildebeest, just for old time's sake.
